Hello everyone,

I don't understand this point of the rules :

Alien players cannot use items, but they can still collect them, placing the Item Cards face down in front of them to disguise themselves as Human

I don't see the moment when the disguise is useful ?

Thanks for your help :)

If you hide the fact you're an alien the humans don't know if they should be avoiding the sounds they hear from you.

It's a trade off - you need enough random noise and safe spaces to make moves that would be plausible for a non-alien.

And if you're 8 players playing, it is very hard to worry about everyone, compared to if you know the 4 aliens.

Won't it be obvious that you are an alien when you don't actually use any items?

Well... not using an item could also be because you haven't drawn any items or because you aren't in a situation to use one of the items (like the "attack an alien item" which is very situational).
