Blitz Hammering is a variation of the term hammer used to convey a specific way of using the final vote for the player's benefit. For instance, if the player with the hammer is sided with the mafia, and the votes are broken between lynching a villager and lynching a member of the mafia, a "blitz hammer" may be cast in order to quickly bring an end to the day before someone takes off their vote. This is an important strategy for third party roles, especially the Fool, as well.
