Revelations? Broken or not? Sun, 11 May 2008 19:25
I came across this problem in gameplay a few nights ago.

A player make two different revelations based on the same traits (ie: he reveals the murderer is fat first, and then reveals the murderer as thin later in the game).

1) does this count as him making two revelations or one revelation? (addendum to that, can someone make a 'fat' revelation now that he 'changed' the revelation?)

2) how does he score points?

3) Is it theoretically possible for someone to keep on going to the chapter hall and publishing revelations about all the traits (and accumulate 3 points at the end of the game, although it would still lose to a correct accusation)

you can't make a revaltion contradicting one you have already made, I think.

Actually, you can. The only thing you can't do with Revelations is state the same thing that someone else already has. If you contradict your own Revelation, then both will be recorded. One will be wrong, one will be correct, resulting in a net gain of only 1 point instead of 2. (2 points for correct Revelation, -1 for incorrect).

It's feasible for someone to do, but it would take a total of three turns altogether - one to make the initial Revelation, another to move out of the Capitulum, then another to move back in to make another. Those additional turns could probably be better spent gathering further information, though of course it's up to the individual player!

Jedi is absolutly right. You can make exactly 3 points this way but you normally will loose the game because the player that makes correct accusation will get 4 points...
