Game features and rules Among Us
The essence of the game is that all heroes are divided into 2 teams at random: crew members and traitors hiding between them. None of the peaceful people know who the traitor is, they have to use deduction, intuition and the method of exclusion to choose traitors. Anyone can stop the round and make their own guess about the killer. The suspect can make excuses. After that, the team must vote against who is most likely the traitor.
Either traitors or civilians will win. To win the crew members, they need to correctly identify the killers, or at least complete all the proposed tasks. After executing them, the game ends. Traitors win when all crew members die or their outcome is predetermined (the same number of criminals remains).
