Game lends to so much bluff. My favorite game of this so far had me winning simply by telling the truth.
I announced at the start of the game: "I assure all the future sheriffs that I will do nothing but tell the truth" And so I did; however I did manage to craftfully goad people into opening my bag with various different approaches. It was a thing of beauty. [my favorite is picking up contraband from discard pile and not place it in the bag]
A bit of backstory -- I'm pretty conniving, so me telling the whole truth in a game like this is pretty much out of character [and surprisingly difficult]. I was either top or 2nd in most majorities this way.
Great strategy- I'm going to try this next game!
