The Bureaucrat gives extra votes to a player of their choice.

Character Text

Each dusk, choose a player (not yourself): their vote counts as 3 votes tomorrow.


Example Gameplay

The Bureaucrat selects Evin. Tomorrow, when the first vote is being tallied, the Storyteller counts "1... 2... 3... 4-5-6... 7". The nominated player now has 7 votes for their execution, and the nomination process continues.

The Bureaucrat selects Filip. Tomorrow, Filip has a triple vote, which he uses 3 times. The next night, the Bureaucrat selects a dead player - Douglas. Tomorrow, Douglas must use his vote token to vote, but if he does, his vote counts triple.


Tips & Tricks (if you are good)

Choose living players (not the butler)

Find someone that you trust / is confirmed

Watch how they vote

Ask the town to help you choose

Be super careful on final night… maybe get exiled

Tell the group who you picked

Lie about who you picked and watch the behavior of the bogus player

Double up with the Thief


Tips & Tricks (if you are evil)

  • Don't choose evil players ALL the time - that will look too suspicious. If you just choose the Demon over and over again. the good team has reason to believe that you are evil, as good Bureaucrats tend to change their minds more often. Choose evil players MOST, but not all, of the time. This way, evil players will be getting the majority of the triple votes, but you look more trustworthy to the good team, allowing you to survive longer.
  • Another strategy is to choose good players until the perfect moment arises. This works best if the players you choose for the first half of the game are not only good, but believed to be good by the group. Choosing good players this way builds up a lot of trust in you, trust that you can betray at the last minute, by giving an evil player triple votes on the last day, or even at a similarly crucial point late in the game.
  • Choose an evil player on the final day. Although it might be tempting to choose a good player on the final day, so that you look more trustworthy, a good player having triple voting power is a huge danger to your team and far outweighs any benefits gained due to your angelic appearance. On the contrary, an evil player getting triple votes on the final day can win the game.
  • Choose dead evil players, if you can justify your reason for doing so. The dead are generally more trustworthy than the living, so giving a dead Minion triple votes not only helps your image, but gets that brutal extra two votes for the evil teams' desired nominee. A dead evil player with triple votes is really maximising their offensive potential, as long as they actually are believed to be good.
