Two more questions questions from a newbie Fri, 25 December 2009 05:31
Rather late in the game, one player asked another "Are you going to the Capitulum in the next two turns?" The answer was, "That isn't my plan, but if I find out an important fact, my plan may change (the responder had it narrowed down to 2 possibilities)." The question seems legal (it is similar to an example question in the rules). If the question is legal and a binding yes/no response is required, then what about the question "On which of your following turns will you go to the Capitulum?" or "Will you go to the Capitulum in the next 4 (or 6, etc...) turns?" At what point does this question change to a gamebreaker that locks a player into visiting or out of visiting a room for an extended period of time?

One player asked another, "Have you marked off Father Sergio?" The player who responded had never seen the Father Sergio card, but had been able to eliminate all Fathers by counting responses to questions. What should the answer be?

There is no requirement the question have a Yes/No answer, so an honest reponse is correct if the person questioned decides to respond. If there is any doubt that the player will not do something in the future, they should respond by saying they don't know or are planning to now, but might change their mind later. If they actually answer in the affirmative without any qualifications (which would be foolish), then they are bound to perform that action, as supported by the rules, which have the following example:

'"Are you going to Chapter Hall" (Obviously, your opponent is then bound by his answer).'

Well, if the player marked Father Sergio off on his sheet, then he should response Yes, regardless of why he marked it off. If on the other hand the questioner asked "Have you seen the Father Sergio card" then the response would be "No".

It would seem that the more turns someone asks ahead, the less likely you are to have to answer.

If they say are you going there next turn, you'll probably have a good idea, and need to make a fairly clear answer. If they ask for six turns ahead ahead, I think it's entirely legitimate to just say "don't know yet"
