Hi Everyone,

I'm a little confused with Mordred's mechanic. Does he reveal himself to the Minions of Mordred when they reveal themselves to each other, i.e., does he open his eyes at the same time as them? Or is he unknown to both Merlin and the Minions?

Thanks

One thing I would add is that I have seen some players have the evil players open their eyes and then put their thumbs up (except Mordred) before closing their eyes. Of course, this already doesn't really work when using Oberon, but letting the other evil players know who is Mordred is a big advantage.

If Mordred and another evil player are on a mission together, then the non-Mordred player know to play the Fail card, since Mordred wants to keep his identity secret from Merlin, and should play the Success card. If the other evil players do not know who Mordred is, then they run the risk of neither or both playing a Fail card.

I always play this way. Yes, it helps out Bad a little bit, but I think giving More Info always helps the deduction aspects of the game. That Mordred is known to other spies helps Good figure things out.

We would regard this pretty much as cheating.

Of course, if it hasn't been agreed beforehand. If it has been agreed it's a variant.
