Can we assume that the prisoners know when the selection process starts? That is, after they consider their strategy, a bell goes off or there is some signal when the first prisoner is selected?
And can we assume that the prisoners can see a clock or have some means of tracking time? Maybe each can start one one thousand, two one thousand, ... so that as time goes by they know how many times a prisoner has been selected to go to the room?
