From the rules:

"If all players are on the same side, the player with the most
points wins.
If there are players on both sides, the side whose player has the
lowest individual points total is eliminated. In the case of a tie,
Loyalists are eliminated. Then the player with the highest score
on the remaining side wins"

From Treefrog's website:

"When the game ends all players reveal their identities. If it is a four-player game then each side (Restorationist and Loyalist) totals their points and the side with the lower score is eliminated. If there is an odd number of players then the side which has lowest scoring individual player is eliminated. The remaining player with the highest score is then declared the victor. Thus you have to be careful to end the game when you are assured of victory. It will do you no good if you are ahead on points while another player languishes in last place, as he will bring you down with him."

The rulebook says nothing about 4 player games eliminating the team with the lowest combined score, but the website does. Which is correct?

Thanks, I just looked at thread titles to see if this question had been asked, probably should have opened this one.
