Hot Potato

Role Description:

The Hot Potato is a player who starts off with the "Hot Potato" item in their possession. On Night 1, they have to pass the item to a new player, who will in turn pass it on to someone new on Night 2, etc. Any player carrying this item cannot use any night action on the night that they are passing it off to someone new.


There are a couple of possible variations to this role: 1) The Hot Potato can be randomly assigned at the start of the game to any role, meaning that someone can be a Cop starting with a Hot Potato in their possession, 2) The person starting with the Hot Potato can be informed of the Hot Potato's movements each night, or 3) the person is roleblocked on the night that they receive the Hot Potato rather than on the night that they are passing it off.
