spell ‘Loyal Servant of Arthur’

Egyptian war is not about winning
It’s about dealing massive damage to your opponents

metagaming in that way is banned when we play avalon lol

I mean we didn’t create the secret underground Avalon group that meets the night before board game night for no reason

to be fair outright banning that specific form of metagaming feels unproductive because you can just … spell it while being evil …

i play with two different groups, one which prefers shorter social deduction games that meets various late nights during the week, and the other which prefers longer board games that meets sunday afternoons
