What is malice?

avatar maliceMalice is a resource that you get whenever you do something malicious, e.g. arrest another player.

When we talk about malice in the game, we use this symbol: .

Malice is the only resource in the game that negatively affects its owners:
Firstly, with each  point your bribe increases by 1.
Secondly, there’s quite a few cards in the deck that punish the player with the highest .
Finally, the lower the malice, the higher the chance of winning the Elections – since the player with the least  gets 3 extra.
