You doing anything to address the broken nature of a 3-person standoff?

You mean where only three people remain standing?

If everyone plays 'Ambush', they all die. Prisoner's dilemma, as it were.

Is there another problem inherent in having three, and only three, players alive?

The Ambush option makes it work, imo. We played this PBF as Tontine, me, Clublock, Jarek, Natsume and clyde, I think. Maybe a couple of others? Oh, Machiavellian too.

I'll dig it out and link it.

Three players always resetting the game is very unfulfilling and makes the game unenjoyable. It's not the Prisoner's dilemma because there's either one winner or none.

It really doesn't work. I've played several games, and after a certain point, whenever it went to three, we all just sighed and reset the round.

I said "as it were" because it's a similar kind of problem, not exactly the same situation.

You either make the gutsy play to win or you make the safe play to prevent them from winning.

There is no gusty play. Playing anything other than an ambush is stupid.

The idea that we tossed around is that everyone gets a bar in a 3-player round and it just ends. Because you should get some reward for playing "correctly" up until that point, especially if you burn people on the way to get there.

This is a powerful group think that is clearly wrong in my opinion. The proper play with 3 left heavily depends on how many points each player has.

No matter the situation, there is always the gusty play. Provided your body gives you the ability to do so.
