The game alternates between Night and Day rounds, starting with the Night. At the start of Night, the Moderator tells all players, "Close your eyes." Everyone begins slapping their knees (or table) to cover up any noises of the Night. Then, the moderator prompts the following characters to wake up one by one....
The moderator says, "Everybody open your eyes; it's now daytime" and then announces who has been killed (or saved) last night. If someone was killed, that person is immediately out of the game, and they do not reveal their character.
