Playing through the various games, the one I've had the most trouble with is the confrontation game. The fact that you can lose (at least) 9 popularity from losing this game makes it very high stakes. And, the fact that it's the last game you play before you lose, makes it very important to win. Nonetheless, I've had a hard time wrapping my head around the tactics of this particular game.
Are there any tips, tricks, or general strategies, to beating the confrontation game?
