We had multiple Brutes come out during our games.

What happens when the Brute comes out and he's the highest character? Does he knock out himself? Does he Knock out the second highest? Does he not knock out anyone?

Unlike the Mutineer, the Brute's card doesn't specifically exclude himself. I'd say he knocks himself out.

That's what the guys running the demo at GENCON said too. He kills / Knocks himself out.

I was one of those guys. I'm not sure if you demoed with me or with someone else, though.

The official word from the designer was that he knocks himself out.

Does that mean there will be a booty left over? Who gets it?

We had three Brutes come out along with two other cards during our five player game. Since the rules don't say we ruled that only the last Brute remained since it didn't make sense to us thematically that the guy would knock himself out. So in essence the first Brute didn't knock anyone out but the second Brute took the first out and the third took the second out.

Since Day actions resolve low to high, it would go like this (The Brutes are A/B/C):

MONKEY, MUTINEER, A, B, C

(Please note: I don't have my game in front of me, so this is from memory)

Day:
MONKEY pushes the Cursed Tokens to the next player
MUTINEER does nothing (His action is a Night action)
A KO's C
B KO's B

Dusk:
A claims a treasure
Mutineer claims a treasure
Monkey claims a treasure

Night:
Mutineer kills someone in his den.

So, even though you got there "wrong," it sounds like you got the correct result.

Eric,
Are you sure Brute "B" would kill himself? It really does not make sense that he would do that thematically.

Yes, I read that, just does not make much sense...IMHO. Still a very fun game!

Brute looks for someone to punch, goes for the ship's figurehead (alas he's a bit thick), and falls overboard.

Perfectly thematic!

Brute looks for someone to punch, sees his own reflection in the water, and goes in after it.

Can you see how low intelligence and going overboard yields multiple possibilities for Brute self-destruction? Choose your own scenario.

Doesn't even have to be overboard. A drunken Brute pick a fight with someone, and, forgetting the low ceilings below decks, stands a bit too quickly, knocking himself out.

Well, ok. Except that in our games, all of the Brute's victims are roughly punched to the ground then dispatched head-first over the side of the ship. It is therefore necessary (for reasons of irony and comeuppance), that the hapless Brute sees more than just stars, and ignominiously parts company with the ship.

So, when that bully that's been pushing the rest of the crew around knocks himself out, you're telling me that the crew wouldn't toss him overboard?
