- Bank Robber
- Bank Robber
- Rookie (5+ Players)
- Skeptic (6 Players)
While the Hostages technically get the first turn, they do not have any actions, so the Bank Robber's turn is first. The Bank Robbers get to see each other during their turn. However, if there is only one Bank Robber, he gets to check an unused card at the bottom. After that, the Rookie works exactly the same way, but is innocent. Then, the Ex-Cop gets to either check two unused cards or a player's card. Finally, the Shoplifter can choose to steal another player's card, and see what card they have gotten (however, the victim is not told). During the Interrogation phase, the Skeptic is shown what card they currently have, but no one else is shown.
- The Shoplifter should claim first, unless the Skeptic's card was stolen, or an Ex-Cop checked a player's card.
- Bank Robber duos can claim that one of them stole the other player's card. The person claiming Shoplifter can say whatever role they desire was stolen.
- Hostage, Skeptic, and Rookie claims are very easy claims for a Bank Robber, as they do not require any guessing on their part.
- Bank Robbers claiming Rookie should be cautious of an Ex-Cop seeing the Rookie card at the bottom.
- Bank Robber duos can claim that they saw each other as Rookie.
- Hostage and Skeptic claims as Bank Robber usually involve him being very passive, and do their best to avoid any suspicion. They also often claim quickly, so the order in which Hostages claim do not mean much unless someone waits until everyone else has already claimed or waits a significantly longer time.
- Ex-Cop should usually check bottom cards, as it gives much more information.
- A Shoplifter that has stolen a Bank Robber will almost always claim Hostage or Skeptic, as they have no information to go off of.
- Ex-Cop and Rookie should claim early, but hold off what they have learned until everyone has claimed (even if they saw Bank Robber)
