After all players have looked at their character cards and know their loyalty (good or evil), it is necessary for the evil players to identify one another without any good players discovering who the evil players are.
To accomplish this:
1. All players close their eyes.
2. The leader instructs only the evil players to open their eyes and silently identify one another.
3. After a few moments, long enough for the evil players to have identified each other, the leader instructs the evil players to close their eyes again.
4. Everybody opens their eyes.
If you are using any of the variant characters, you need to use the extended setup variant here so that the right players gain the right information!
