How to play Hide and Seek in a custom Among Us lobby?

Playing hide and seek in the game is not as difficult as it sounds. With proper communication, some standard rules and game settings, players can have a chaotic game of Hide and Seek in Among Us.

The basic idea behind the mode is to have a single imposter who reveals himself at the beginning of the game. Also, none of the players  can sabotage, vent, and report bodies.

Impostors: 1

Emergency Meeting: 1

Emergency Cooldown: 10s to 15s

Discussion Time: 30s

Voting Time: 15s

Player Speed: 2.5x to 3x

Crewmate Vision: 4x to 5x

Impostor Vision: 0.5x

Kill Cooldown: 10s to 20s

Kill Distance: short

Tasks: Infinite

With these settings, the imposter has to roam around with minimum visibility and kill the crewmates. The last person to survive is the winner. However, PewDiePie and his friends didn’t go for infinite tasks. Rather, they played Hide and Seek with limited tasks to make the game more intense and engaging.
