Setup Type:
Designer:
The Coalition is an Open Setup based around compromise and coming to a collective agreement. On Day 1, the town may attempt to form a townblock ("Coalition") of five players. If all members of this block are town, the town wins immediately. Otherwise, the game proceeds on to Day 1 as a normal mountainous game.

Setup

Mechanics

  • Daytalk is enabled.
  • Day start.
  • On Day 1, each player may propose a coalition of five players (and may change their mind about this as often as they like, until a coalition is locked in).
  • A majority coalition is agreed upon when at least five players have the same group of five people proposed as a coalition. At this point, the coalition is locked in and cannot be changed.
  • If a coalition containing scum is locked in, the game continues onto a normal Day 1 at that point (but town have the information that there was at least one scum inside the coalition); the coalition mechanic is disabled for the rest of the game.
  • If a coalition containing five townies is locked in, town automatically wins.

Notes

The expected value for town is slightly larger than 41.5%. Interestingly, while scum must make an effort to get at least one of their members within the coalition, it is suboptimal for both members to be in the coalition – given the information from a failed coalition that at least one scum must be within that group of five people, the correct course of action for town is to lynch from within that group. Having two scum within that group of five increases the odds that scum are lynched.
