Now comes the snappy twist: there are one or more players Impostorwho have only one goal in mind: to bring all unsuspecting players around the corner without being exposed. To do this, they simulate work, sabotage systems to create distractions or move nimbly through the ventilation shafts.
The “clean” players can Call emergency meetings. Then you discuss who the impostor could be via text chat or microphone. At the end of this phase, all players vote on who should be thrown out of the airlock. If the traitor has messed up and has been observed during a murder, for example, the vote is often unequivocal.
Does the imposter have against it well deceived and secretly killed – and ideally diverted attention from yourself in conversation with others – sometimes one after the other players spin innocently into the vastness of space.
