This variation can play solo, as an investigator. Setting up and running are very close to the original game except for two points:
(1) The offender is not identified at the outset but emerges in the game. The aim of the investigator is to exonerate suspects as you go.
(2) The player who plays Mr Jack is replaced by an "artificial intelligence" that determines an order in the choice of actions and ways to use actions.
In odd rounds, cast the actions of four chips, the investigator chooses an action first, Mr Jack makes two, then the investigator shall be the last.
When the towers peers, return the chips on the other side, Mr Jack chooses the first action, the investigator performs two, then Mr Jack did last.
When Mr Jack plays, he chose his actions among the actions still available according to the following order:
1. Focus: it returns the first card alibi and adds the number of timer (s) to the number of timer it already has.
2. Exchanging two tiles: Mr Jack exchange the positions of two tiles retain their orientation. The choice of tiles to minimize the visibility of the investigators.
3. Joker: Mr Jack can move a character from his choice of a box in the direction of clockwise. Mr Jack chose the character who may or may see as many suspects and so place it facing the wall and sees the fewest characters possible.
4. Rotation: Mr Jack chooses a tile to turn a quarter turn or a U-turn. The tile chosen should minimize the visibility of the investigators.
5. Character: it moves a character from January to February cells in the direction of clockwise, so it is facing a wall and sees the fewest characters possible. If characters are more tokens available, Mr Jack chooses the one that is or could see more suspects.
Wherever possible, Mr Jack has to choose different actions. For example, when the towers peers, if the first action is to turn a tile and the remaining shares are to turn a tile or two tiles share, it must swap two tiles.
When all actions have been used, proceed to the second phase of the tour: the investigation. For some it will be found innocent suspects. Mr Jack is still part of the majority group of suspects.
While the majority of suspects are visible, while Mr Jack is visible. All the tiles are turned face suspects invisible empty. The interviewer gets the token time of this tour.
While the majority of suspects are invisible, so Mr Jack is invisible. All the tiles are turned face suspects visible empty. Mr Jack gets the token time of this tour.
If he suspects many visible and invisible, we look at the lap time counter. If there is a magnifying glass, Mr Jack is one of the suspects visible. All the tiles are turned face suspects invisible empty. The interviewer gets the token time of this tour. If there is a knife, Mr Jack is one of the suspects invisible. All the tiles are turned face suspects visible empty. Mr Jack gets the token time of this tour.
The game ends if:
- There remains a suspect: the investigator wins.
- Mr Jack has accumulated six hourglass, time with his chips and cards alibi: Mr Jack wins.
- At the end of the eighth round, there is still at least two suspects: Mr Jack won.
