Are you a Werewolf?

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.

Settlers of Zarahemla

The Settlers of Zarahemla is a fun game (part of the very popular Settlers of Catan family) which sees the players trying to settle territories in the Land of Zarahemla. This game is aimed at LDS or Mormon game players but will be enjoyed by anyone who plays games and likes the Settlers games. Excellent production of components, relatively simple rules and nice flavour of the Book of Mormon all come together in this excellent family game.

Cash & Guns

Cash & Guns is simply an Awesome game! The players are all members of a gang who are dividing up the take from a robbery and of course, fall out amongst themselves with guns out and bullets flying! Each round, after you find out how much of the haul is avaiable, you point a foam plastic gun at one of the other gang members and either shoot (Bang cards) bluff (click, click cards) or give in (cowardice). The winner is to survive with the most cash. Hilarious!

Metro

I traded for this one and played with my game group last week. This is a route building, tile placement puzzle game where you try and create the longest Paris Metro routes that you can to gain victory points. Took me a while to be able to see the routes due to the spaghetti of routes from all the players. Good fun and definitely want to play again.

Terra Nova

This is a really easy game in terms of mechanics. It is all about moving your pioneers to place boundary stones to capture terrain. The hard part is when you try to optimise your placement before the other players do. A real push your luck element where risk taking can pay off, or in my case set you up for a fall. I really enjoyed playing this and look forward to playing again.
