So in the

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Escape from Innsmouth, we needed a light source to check the last place on the map for a clue so we could escape, since we didn't have enough clues to compile and finish, when the person carrying the lamp got the betrayer insanity card when he went over his sanity limit.


Since an insane investigator (he got the betrayer, investigators must lose card) and he had the scenario item we needed, it basically meant we were going to lose the game, exactly is this supposed to work?

If that means we had what happened coming, sure okay... but it doesn't feel very good considering how long it took to get to that point.

How did you know he got that card, or did you find out after the game?
If someone acts suspiciously you could always use the Steal action to take an important item from them.

Holy crap, steal??

I completely missed we could do that.

Yeah we found out afterward. we had a plan in place to trade the item, and after he went crazy he was "Nope, not trading that byeeeeee"

Oh, I know this one. Page 17 of the rules reference. the steal action.

Choose a target in your space. You choose either strength, agility, or observation. Both players roll the chosen skill, and if the active player wins the roll you can steal an item from the other player for each success above theirs.

Honestly, once someone goes betrayer, it must be done to preserve the game.

Easy to miss!

On the back of the Rules Reference there is a section called "Rarely used actions" with quick descriptions and it then points you to which page you can read about each one further.
