comment How can I set up a game of the Resistance without anyone needing to close their eyes?
@Andrey I guess that this would end up the same as having a computer moderating, which is a fairly neat solution, but I was wondering if there was a cards only solution as in the other question.

These look promising! I think these all work by the bad guys sharing a secret that's on their role card, and the set of bad guy role cards being chosen at random from a large number of sets of bad guy role cards. I think this means that for 10 players, with 4 bad guys, there are something like 210 sets of bad guy cards? Is this right?

Everyone knows how many spies there are at the start of the game.

comment Creating an “Everyone but me knows my role” mechanic
@shujaa I've just edited our solution back in at the top of your answer, with some (very) minor edits to make the two identical. That way this can stay as the comprehensive answer (yours had some nice analysis). When I first saw you'd got the same answer I thought it must have been copied, but I've spent several hours trying to come up with another method that works just as well and failed! Consequently I can definitely believe you came up with the same thing.

shujaa and I came up with the same idea independently. Adding back solution here with cross reference to example, and very minor edits to make the two schemes identical.

Hi shujaa, I don't have a problem creating one 'best' answer, consisting of the best ideas from all the answers, but it would be nice if you could at least add a reference to my answer below (assuming that's where the latest edit is taken from). Thanks!

comment How can I keep track of things, in Discworld: Ankh-Morpork?
By "chaos" in the fourth bullet point I think you mean "trouble", and I think you're playing the "History Monks" card wrong (although anything to stop Vimes winning would be good). Otherwise this is a good answer.

@kraymer Yes, you're right - "During the producer phase" implies that the following events have to happen within a single producer phase (i.e. the production of at least two goods). The goods have to be new, cards already on top of production buildings have already been produced (i.e. they represent goods, not the production of goods).

comment Is there a Diplomacy variant that does not contain stalemate lines?
@TomAu Ah, ok. I missed that you're adding Libya as an extra empty region too. This is an interesting answer, but I'd still be interested in whether a stalemateless board exists.

Does this help to prevent stalemate situations? I would have thought that having a map that is more dense in supply centres would increase the number of stalemate positions.
