    Ok so if I understand what you proposed, it goes something like this :

    5 players know who the king is, 1 does not.

    All players submit a code of the first x letters of the kings name multiplied by an arbitrarily chosen value with x being chosen by the individual.

    After each player submits their calculation and their arbitrary number, they then reveal their x.

    Example, if I was Jones and picked the first two letters of ironstove, and picked 54 as my arbitrary number, i would submit 9*18*54 = 8748 and 54

    Then after my and everyone else's number is submitted, i would reveal my x is 2 and everyone can confirm that I'm a guard.

    Yea, I can see that working. I misunderstood if that's the case.

    Well maybe not pick in order because you could reverse engineer, so I guess you pick any letters in the kings name and then reveal which position letters you picked. So say my x is the first third and fifth letter, at that point yiu cannot reasonably brute force manually. Still crack able with a computer but that would be breaking rules.

    It does feel like a cheap way to win

    But yea it doesn't have to be the kings name, it could be post count, or join date as you said.

    Why couldmt you have explained it like a normal person instead of using nerd speak
