When we did that public voting, that wasn't to kill off the person, right?
Basically on these games it goes a lil something like this:
Day 1 - vote in a "sheriff" who will be a tie breaker in the event that there may be a tie... which doesn't happen often but if it does we have that person to handle it. The Sheriff has no other real role than to do that.
Night 1 - bad guys vote who to kill and special roles can do their thing
Day 2 - Everyone votes on who they think did the killing. Once a vote is made the majority of the vote chooses who we "lynch" or whatever may be in the particular game. When that person is lynched we find out if they were innocent or guilty.
The goal is different according to which side you are on. If you re a Montague then you want to weed out the Capulets and have them lynched or killed by the assassin. If you are a Capulet you want to kill the Montague's or have the majority vote to lynch all hte Montagues.
If you are the Romeo/Juliet team your goal is to be the last two standing. There has not been a game to date in which the "twins" or "Lovers" have won that I know of.
Night 2 will come after the lynching and the bad guys will vote to kill and the specials can do their roles if they wish.
Day 3.. we rinse and repeat.... so on and so forth until one side or the other is left standing.
