After our first game with the Thing as a role, I casually mentioned that there doesn't seem to be any reason that a non-Thing couldn't bump a neighbour's shoulder...

Wouldn't you know, next game 4 out of 7 people reported having their shoulders bumped. Turns out the Thing was buried in the middle, and everybody was just messing around - including Villagers, who had no real reason to sew mischief other than "thought it would be fun".

So... is the Thing the only player who is allowed to bump into neighbours during the Thing's activation? Seems like it could be a legitimate Tanner or Werewolf or Minion play, too. Or is this against the spirit of the rules?

The only stupid question... is the one you don't ask!

IMO, having a non-thing bump someone is the same thing as a non-werewolf opening their eyes during the wolf phase.

It ruins the flow and mechanics of the game, and is technically cheating. Anyone can *claim* to have been bumped. So having 4 people claim they were bumped is fine... but having 4 players actually bump others?

We had a situation where the Seer looked at the Robber, then the Robber stole the Seer, and both the (original) Robber and (original) Seer each intentionally bumped people on both sides of them during the Thing's activation, but nobody believed them because why would a Villager try to be so mischievous? Seems more like something a Werewolf and a Minion might do to give each other alibis. But in the end, they were really the Robber and the Seer. wow

Bump all you like, but during the Thing's Phase, only the Thing gets to do that action.

Also why everyone does not stick up their thumbs for the Minion, etc.
