How does it work?
Werewolf is a game of deception and manipulation. It has infected almost every significant digital event around the world, from the informal conferences to the music, film and interactive-media crossover of South By Southwest (SXSW).Werewolf is quick and easy to set up, and the basic rules take no more than 2 minutes to explain. If you've played "Mafia" its almost the same game.
Played with seven or more players. The moderator deals cards which designate each player as either a villager or a werewolf. Players do not reveal their cards until the game is over.
The game plays out over a period of "night" and "day" phases, controlled by the moderator. During the "night", all players shut their eyes. The moderator calls on any werewolves present to open their eyes and, using gestures and hand signals, they silently nominate a victim. When "night" ends, all players open their eyes and the moderator announces who has died. This player leaves the game and must not make any further comments, and especially not reveal whether he was a villager or a werewolf.
During the "day", there is nothing to distinguish werewolves from villagers, so players debate between themselves and agree on a person to lynch, in the hope of killing a werewolf. This player then leaves the game and must not make any further comments. The cycle is repeated until either all the werewolves are dead (a villager victory), or the werewolves are equal in number to the remaining villagers (a werewolf victory). The moderator announces the result, and players are then free to reveal their cards.
There are a additional players such as the healer, seer, hunter, etc which add spice up a already fun game.
