Friday night was a new monthly boardgame night that I am running at our church. We had a great turnout and so I introduced everyone to a game called Are you a Werewolf?
This is a great social game where each player is secretly assigned a role – Werewolf, Villager, or Seer. Werewolf takes place in a small village which is haunted by werewolves.
The game alternates between night and day phases as the number of Villagers is shrunk by the Werewolves attacking at night whilst the Villagers try to discover the identity of the Werewolves.
Werewolves win when there are an equal number of Villagers and Werewolves. Villagers win when they have killed all Werewolves.
There were lots of laughs and tension as the group argued amongst themselves as to who they thought were the Werewolves.
