comment Solution to Avalon board game
In particular I don't think many people would like to be part of a game where they have to manually perform an asymmetric key exchange protocol before they can start playing!

@JoeW I think the point of this is that the good side don't have perfect knowledge at the start, but after a couple of failed missions they can derive it. Consequently this answer suggests that if all players play in this (pain-staking) way then the good team can force a win. It's definitely against the spirit of the game - MWilliams mentions in a comment on the question "I'm not suggesting anyone actually play this way (it would be dreadfully boring and pointless).".

I think this is an interesting question, and it clearly shows "research effort". I think you could improve the question by splitting out your potential answer into an answer and making a few things clearer in the question. For example I'm fairly sure you're assuming a game with Merlin as the only special character, and I have never played Avalon like this. Also it might be helpful to state some of the rules in the question, or at least a link to them - I can't remember off the top of my head the ratios of good to evil for different numbers of players.
