Okay, so I have played a solo-ish game to learn rules, then two two-player games to familiarize my friends with the game (by the way, works very well because explaining eats a lot of time and the game does take that long, and neither time have we even finished the first week). After these experiences, I have a couple questions for now:
1. How many TESTIMONY lead markers are placed on the board? All, or just "suspects +1" = to the amount of players?
2. My friend really wanted to kill Floyd's Father Michael NPC so he could use certain dark cards against me. Can an NPC be assassinated or does that only happen to suspects? How do you kill an NPC besides plot, or is that the only time an NPC can be killed? I don't know if he had a bad shuffle or what but it seemed a decent amount of dark cards were dependent on the Father's death.
