Strategy Guide for Playing as Seer
- Understanding the Seer Role
The Seer is an interesting Town Investigative role. You have the ability to choose two players at night to determine if they are on opposing factions. This means you are focused on discerning loyalties and affiliations rather than specific roles, giving you a different perspective on the game’s unfolding dynamics.
- Abilities and Limitations
As a Seer, you have certain restrictions. You may not choose yourself, nor a revealed Mayor. Moreover, roles like an Enchanter or Illusionist can interfere with your results, causing you to receive false or misleading information.
- Strategic Use of Abilities
Your power can be influential in narrowing down possible threats to the town. By selecting two players at night and discovering they are from opposing factions, you can make educated guesses about their roles. For example, if you know a player is a confirmed Town member and you find they are in opposition to another player, that player is likely a member of the Mafia, Coven, or Neutral roles.
Just like other investigative roles, communication is key. It’s vital to relay your findings to the town in a clear and efficient manner. Be mindful of how you phrase your accusations; stating someone is from an opposing faction is not the same as saying they’re outright evil. Remember, neutrals are also in opposition to the town.
- Counteracting Manipulation
Since your results can be manipulated by an Enchanter or Illusionist, always consider the possibility of being tricked. If your results consistently lead to innocent players being lynched, you might be getting manipulated.
- Playing Defensive
As a Seer, you don’t have any natural defenses and can be an attractive target for evil roles wanting to confuse the town. Be careful when revealing your role, and try to only do so when you have important information to share.

Strategies for Masquerading as a Seer
If you are playing a different role, particularly an evil one, and need to disguise yourself as a Seer, here are a few strategies:
- Understand the Role: Understand the mechanics of a Seer role, how the powers work, and when the abilities can and can’t be used.
- Select your Targets: Be strategic in selecting the two players you would ‘investigate’ each night.
- Frame your Results: If you’re evil, remember to frame your results in a way that sows discord among the Town members.
- Be Aware of Counterclaims: If there is a real Seer in the game, they might counterclaim and debunk your results. Have a strategy to counter this.
- Play Along with Illusionists or Enchanters: If there are illusionists or enchanters in the game, use them to your advantage. Their interference might provide a plausible reason for any discrepancies in your claims.
Remember, the key to successfully masquerading as a Seer is to blend in, share plausible but not too much information, and manage suspicions effectively. However, always be prepared to adapt your strategy if suspicion falls on you.
