I'm sure you're way done with your game now, but making a false accusation gets you a free black sword.

Yeah turns out I was loyal But get this. We had I think three sword spots left with one black sword and the rest white. I might be misremembering but I'm pretty sure if we got one more white sword we would have guaranteed a win if there are no traitors. Hadn't called anyone out so was a bit of a risk. Anyway we decide to kick some butt quick at the beach quick. Leave Kay to fight siege engines. So the board was starting to look a bit dire with three saxons on the board along with other situations. So we get all the way to 4 on the saxon war. Gets to Sir Galahad who is hopefully going to play a 5 on his heroic action. Had like four spots for siege engines and he has like 3 lives. This dork draws a black card for his evil action!!! Lo and behold it's a dang saxon and we lose the war. I'm like what the heck are you doing??! And he just says oh I forgot I could do other stuff blah blah blah.

Now at this point I'm like this dummy is the traitor. Turns out he wasn't just really stupid. We wind up winning somehow by calling out the real traitor and getting some more swords.

Anyway, have any of you ever seen someone do something so silly? This guy, and I won't name names, has played probably 100 games of Shadows.

My mother in law was the worst traitor I've ever seen. She had a full hand of cards and just kept moving around claiming she couldn't help on any quests...with a full hand of cards. Lol!!!!

Did it work though? That's what I was resorted to doing when I had a hand of good cards. Playing Merlin's Company exp., I got the Charged Travel card, and pretended not to have 2 matching cards with a hand of 10 of them.

Have had some instances of people doing or saying really dumb stuff and were loyal. Like not defending themselves or even denying it when people start suspecting them. *shrug* oh well, the game would be too easy otherwise, right?

I'm sure you're way way done with your game, but here's a little strategy. Send Falcon to go to the satellite lookout first to scout, then have Captain America follow to take care of all the baddies and say "hi" to his friends along the way. What a great game! 3
