We know is not a very popular mechanic, but there is no reason to be worried!

In Deadly Premonition The Board Game, when a player is removed, that triggers a new mechanic to accelerate the end of the game, so in a matter of 5 minutes approximately the game will get to an end. Moreover, the removed player is still required to roll a die once per turn and discover who is the next suspect to be killed, so his action is extremely important!

Any question you have regarding the rules, please let us know

In a four player game, if two agents are removed, do both roll for a kill on each remaining turn?

One more question - if an agent is eliminated from the game, can the killer then use a "Witness Protection" card to mark a suspect on the eliminated agent's board, causing that suspect to be killed on the eliminated agent's turn without a roll? Or does the mark from Witness Protection only apply to murder rolls coming out of the weather deck?

Hi, and sorry for the late reply - Christmas break, you know laugh

Yes that's correct, in a 4-players game, all agents removed from the game roll the die to kill a suspect on each remaining turn.

Regarding your second question, yeah that's allowed too, and it's an excellent strategy for the remaining agent in that situation (I guess you are the same person who asked that in the Kickstarter page right? ).

Thanks for the response. I wasn’t the person who asked it on Kickstarter - good to know it’s a common inquiry!
