Clue Starved

These conventions apply to the "Clue Starved" variants.


The Bomb Finesse#

  • This convention only applies to Clue Starved variants.
  • In these variants, giving a Fix Clue is not worth it if the team has less than 2 strikes and only one misplay will happen (on a non-critical card).
  • Following from this, if a Layered Finesse with a Lie Component is needed, it is better to not give the Fix Clue and just let them get the strike.
  • Players who get a strike in this way would normally stop playing into the Finesse, knowing that something has gone wrong. But in Clue Starved, they should keep going, knowing that the strike (bomb) was intentional.
