Homeworlds at SDG is played entirely without roles. Binary is two-player, so last man standing wins. Sinister gives the win to the player who destroys / conquers the Homeworld to his left . . .

The Binary and Sinister variants make Homeworlds the perfect information abstract that it never knew it always should have been. (In my opinion, anyway).

You can also play Binary or Sinister Homeworlds (same game but with no
hidden roles) at www.superdupergames.org

From my reading, it seems like Evil is a stronger role, but only when hidden. Seems like it would be a death sentence in Sinister. Do you find that to be the case? And if so, why would anybody want to play that way?
