Roles are randomly chosen and distributed based on the amount of players. Action cards are distributed and the remaining action, item, Alliance, and microfilm cards are shuffled together to form the draw deck. Poker chips are then passed out to set players, and everyone receives one Suspicion token.Advertisement
