The Devil, Satan himself, has come up from his brimstone pit in mortal form to watch this massacre unfold. While the Devil's fleshy body can be killed in any variety of ways, he cannot win or lose. Instead, he spreads chaos and confusion for his own amusement.
For beginner games, during the Identification Phase, simply have the Devil open his eyes so that you can confirm that he knows he is the Devil.
During the Night Phase, have the Devil open his eyes and point to someone to kill. Make a note of who he targeted and then have him close his eyes.
- "Devil, open your eyes and choose someone to kill."
- "Devil, close your eyes."
No alternate rules exist for this card.
Why can't the Devil win?
All of the Wild-aligned cards have special winning conditions or cannot win at all. Unlike other cards, the Devil does not have a goal or agenda that he can work towards in order to win the game. Having a pre-defined objective is antithetic to the intended purpose of this card. Instead of trying to stay alive until the end of the game, helping a group of players win, or meeting some obscure winning condition, the Devil simply exists to be an indiscriminate jerk. As long as the he's able to do this, he is winning in his own way. Of course, players are encouraged to think of their own reasons and theories for why this is!

Remember that while the Devil can't win, being dead isn't very much fun either. Try not to do anything that will outright get you killed such as claiming to be a high-risk card like the Seer or openly admitting that you're the Devil. As long as you're not endangering yourself too much, feel free to have a bang-up time manipulating the fates of your fellow players.
