The Skeptic bore witness to the Barons’ ruthlessness more than once in the past. He had lost two friends to them, and as a result, he became very cautious when doing much of anything. Had the Psychiatrist met him, he likely would have diagnosed him with paranoia. This would play in the Skeptic’s favor, though, as the lights went out in the bank as he was trying to deposit a check. Not knowing what was happening, he could at least know with certainty if anything happened to him.
The Skeptic can see their card again at the beginning of the Interrogation. If their card has changed, the new card will be shown to them.
- If you become a Robber, don't assume you are the only Robber. There could be another one, so see if anyone claims something suspicious, especially Skeptic!
- Just because you now know you are evil does not mean that the original Robber knows they are now good; they will only know when the Anarchist admits to switching them with you.
- If you become an evil role, you cannot claim to be an unchanged Skeptic and expect no counter-claim: there is an Anarchist that knows you were switched with another role, so you must either convince everyone that the Anarchist is lying about switching you or convince everyone you were originally an evil role. If you claim you were a Skeptic turned another innocent role, the person who was switched with you will reveal that they were evil and get you accused!
- If you become a Robber, make a bad claim. That way, when the Anarchist claims, the Innocents are more likely to believe you were originally a Robber.
- If you become another Innocent Role, wait for the Anarchist to claim first, but afterward instantly say what role you became. Thus, you will most likely confirm three Innocent roles. If you become a Shoplifter, it is usually the best idea to claim at the same time with the Shoplifter who stole your card, as this will make the other players less likely of accusing you of being a Robber duo.
