*If you're lucky enough to find a suspicious target early in the game, you should almost always reveal it immediately. Some people are afraid to reveal it because they might be called an {{Executioner}}, and some people will mistakenly advise you to wait because of this; however, there are numerous reasons why revealing vital information at the first possible opportunity is virtually always the right strategy:
