This was a 3 player game. All players were familiar with the game. My starting hand was Contessa Ambassador. I played last.

Round 1
Player 1 - Duke
P1= 5 coins P2= 2 coins P3= 2 coins

Player 2 - also Duke
P1= 5 coins P2= 5 coins P3= 2 coins

Player 3 - Ambassador (I see Contessa Assassin but I keep my original Contessa Ambassador)
P1= 5 coins P2= 5 coins P3= 2 coins

Round 2
Player 1 - Captain to steal from player 2/ blocked with Captain/ P1 challenges/ P1 loses duke/ P2 draws a new card
P1= 5 coins 1 influence (Duke) P2= 5 coins P3= 2 coins

Player 2 - Duke
P1= 5 coins 1 influence (Duke) P2= 8 coins P3= 2 coins

Player 3 - Income
P1= 5 coins 1 influence (Duke) P2= 8 coins P3= 3 coins

Round 3
Player 1 - Assassinate Player 3/ Blocked/ challenged by P1/ P1 loses Assassin and is eliminated/ P3 draws a new Contessa
P1= Eliminated (Duke Assassin) P2= 8 coins P3= 3 coins

Player 2 - Assassinate P3/ Blocked/ challenged by P2 loses Assassin/ P3 draws Assassin
P1= Eliminated (Duke Assassin) P2= 5 coins 1 influence (Assassin) P3= 3 coins

Player 3 - Assassinate P2/ challenged/ P2 eliminated/ P3 wins

I win without even lying! Occasionally you do not need to lie to win this game. I thought I had a pretty weak hand to start. I usually like having Captain and/or Duke to start. Now it seems like Ambassador is one of my favorites. You get more information and can still block that pesky Captain. Contessa is good to have just in case.

The ambassador seems weak at first, but it is actually quite powerful. It is even more powerful with 6 players (some feel overpowered) because there are only three cards in the court deck. You can gain knowledge early in the game and people are unlikely to challenge you. People rarely challenge the ambassador. It just seems so innocuous.
