I know that the higher the number of players, the more likely Commander Vimes is in play, but with games where he is not in the mix, does the game still often end with a player achieving their hidden goal?

I'm not sure how often it happened in playtesting, but when we spent the weekend demoing the game at the UK Expo it was approximately one game in every four or five. Though that's with inexperienced players, of course, who are both more prone to letting someone get an easy instant win and also less likely to play sufficiently well to manage an instant win themselves by design.

In a four-player game, with seven possible personalities Vimes is more likely to be in the game than not, and playing for a points win is a very risky strategy unless you happen to know that he's not in the game.
