After all players have looked at their character cards and know their affiliation, it is necessary for the spies to identify one another without any resistance players discovering who the spies are.
To accomplish this:
1. All players close their eyes.
2. The leader instructs only the spies to open their eyes and silently identify one another.
3. After a few moments, long enough for the spies to have identified each other, the leader instructs the spies to close their eyes again.
4. Everyone opens their eyes.
If you want, you can play a version of the game which skips this step, so the spies don't know each other.
