that alibi would be allowed because it's not the same as either of the previously given hints--the rule is that the exact same alibi may not be given
There's a rule in the game that says you're not supposed to simply repeat information you have already given, but how far is this supposed to be taken? I am talking about the Basic Game.
Here is an example of what I am asking that actually happened in one of our games.
Alibi given was Slander: 5 is not the same as 7
Alibi given was Treachery: 5 and 3 are the same
Later after the Hearsay had been given, they got back all their Alibis and gave this
Alibi given was Slander: 3 is not the same as 7.
Is this allowed? Since we know 5 and 7 are not the same, and 3 and 5 are the same, is it allowed to say 3 and 7 are not the same with another Alibi? Or is this considered deduction?
