While researchers have looked at many aspects of argumentation, an area often neglected is that of argumentation strategies. That is, given multiple possible arguments that an agent can put forth, which should be selected in what circumstances. In this paper, we propose a heuristic that implements one such strategy, namely revealing as little information as possible to other dialogue participants. After formalising the concept and presenting a simple argumentation framework in which it can be used, we show a sample dialogue utilising the heuristic. We conclude by exploring ways in which this heuristic can be employed and a discussion of future work is made which will allow for the use of our approach in more complicated, realistic dialogues.
