Excuse me?
I just made the most rational choice.

The best way to minimize risk and maximize reward in this situation is to choose "betray".

Why... Why did you do it?

I could ask you the same question.
Why did you do something as stupid as choose "ally"?

Why? Haven't you heard of the prisoner's dilemma?
The best solution is for all of us to choose "ally"!

Oh really... All of us, huh?


Yes, I know about the prisoner's dilemma.
But everyone picking "ally" isn't a reasonable outcome.
Just look at the results from this round? What do they tell you?

Well, maybe "tender-headed" would be a little more appropriate in this case...


Oh? Was that upsetting? My apologies.
I'm only trying to warn you.

Alice is right.
You made a stupid choice.
And thanks to you, our BP is down to 1 now.

N-No problem...

Well, to tell you the truth, Mr. Dio wanted to pick "betray".



Mr. Dio told me to pick "betray" so that we could get three points.
He said we could escape together!
If we betrayed you then we'd have 6 BP, and then if we betrayed someone in the next round we'd have 9.

Oh... Dio. Is this true?

N-No! That's not what happened at all!

Mr. Dio would never do something like that.

It was a... joke?

Y-Yeah... Man, y-you really had me going there.

He he he. I really surprised you, huh?


So you really were planning to choose "ally" all along?
Thank you. Thank you very much.

Don't worry about it.
We only did what anybody else would do.
Right Mr. Dio?

Y-Yeah... Exactly.

I guess I just haven't had enough time to earn your trust, huh?

Um... I suppose you could say that.
I just... didn't really expect you to be so... nice about it.

We discuss future rounds.

Zero's shitlist is a little different this time, of course.

Again, notably absent from this section is any reference to Phi knowing about the penalty.

We blather on a bit, until noticing...

It looks like the color wasn't the only thing that changed.

What do you mean?

Well, it looks like our groups have changed too.

I was a solo last round, but now it says "PAIR"...

Wait... Really?
Mine still says "SOLO"...

Are you two magenta too?

Uh huh.


Farewell again.

Everyone leaves, Sigma mopes and reminisces a bit, and we prepare to wander around again.
