Does the subject card have to be played for a person to end up Jack the Ripper? Or can enough evidence cards suffice?

I am not sure of your question, but if subject means 'victim' then no. You can not play evidence cards until there is a victim in play.

The game has SUSPECT cards, Alibi, Victim, Scene and Evidence (and a few specials (Commissioner resigns and Ripper Resigns).

If you meant "Suspect Cards", then the glossary has this to say: "There does not need to be a Suspect card in play for that Suspect to be the Ripper."

Yes, I meant 'suspect' card, as opposed to subject card.

I think I posted a little too early this morning...

The Suspect card does not have to be in play to be the Ripper.

Re: Does Suspect Card Have To Be Played To Be The Ripper?
Thank you, sir, for clarifying that.

My buddy wants to know how one can be considered a suspect if their suspect card has not been played.

We would appreciate your thoughts on that, sir. And thanks, again. We absolutely love this game.

I do not think it means what you think it means.

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

You need evidence against someone (evidence cards on the table) before you are allowed to bring the suspect in for questioning (play the suspect card to the table). He may say things that confirm the evidence against him but he was already under suspicion by Scotland Yard (a suspect) based on the evidence - before they brought him in.

At least that is one way to look at it.

The suspects NAME is literally all over the evidence. Open and shut case!
