Is there any way to 'come back' to win if you start on the losing team, spot the other team is winning due to not voting on your move and doing something to substantially damage your position, and switch teams, over someone who was on the other side who always votes for a bonehead move but gets outvoted every time? As far as I can tell, the winner is whoever stays on the winning team the longest - making staying on a team the longest the primary way to win, and the atctual winning a 'hope for the best' kind of thing.
