If a round is going on for what seems like forever with no evidence, then it might be time to leave the player with the lowest sanity alone to drum up activity.

Players should move as a group in the beginning phases of the hunt until the room is discovered. If players are split up on larger maps, it’s important to bring a smudge stick or crucifix to stop attacks if each player is alone.
