Thank you for the clarifications!
But how do you manage the advance the first scene with three players then?
You are only able to get 9 clues and need twelve...
Three Player Clues are:
3 in Bella Luna
6 from discarding allies from your hand in the lounge
6 clues from having drinks at the bar
2 clues per successful gamble (this is theoretically infinite clues)
No problem getting 12.
