In the game of Mascarade there is an note on page 5 of the rule book that reads:
If a player has revealed their card during the turn of the player immediately before them (by having called the character announcement of the player to their right, or by having been revealed by the Inquisitor), then the player cannot announce that they are their revealed character. The player will be forced to swap their card – or not – with that of another player.
It seems fairly straight forward that you must swap your card with that of another if you just revealed your card in the previous turn.
So in a 4 player scenario what happens when one player 'announces' they are the king and two others 'claim' to be the king? do both of the other players have to swap on their following turn or only the very next player?
Here is a visual:
the players are arraigned as such:
1 4 2 3
And player 1 announces they are the king. Players 2 and 3 claim to be the king as well.
Now from the way I read the note on page 5, player 2, who's turn it is next, is required to swap their card. They can not 'announce' to be the card they just revealed. So where does that leave player 3? If player 2 does not swap with them, then player 3 knows what card they are and essentially gets to announce with perfect certainty.
Is this the correct interpretation?
