Example of Determining the Murderer

The diagram at right depicts four suspects at the end of a three player game.

First, the lowest-value evidence is removed from each suspect's strong evidence file, and the highest-value evidence is removed from each suspect's weak evidence file.

Next, the surprise witness on Thomas Haas subtracts 5 from his total, while the alibi combined with the perjury token on Mark Henry adds 5 to his total, giving the final total shown below (numbers in parentheses are the totals of each of the suspect's evidence files):

Mark Henry: 14 Guilt (4+5+0, +5 for perjured alibi)

Thomas Haas: -5 Guilt (5-2-3, -5 for surprise witness)

Therefore, Mark Henry is , while the other three suspects are innocent.
