What we're about

** COVID UPDATE (July 2021) **

The country is opening up, but cases are still rocketing, and Bristol's got a lot of younger folk who aren't fully vaccinated yet. Most of our sessions are indoors so we're going to postpone our events until mid-September at the earliest. We know you guys are enthusiastic to get back into playing but we want to wait until the case numbers are reducing, and get all attendees double jabbed, wherever possible. We understandably don't want to be a super-spreader.

We've been repeatedly told that we're the best and most welcoming group for new members in Bristol. Feel free to join us for now, and when the world returns to normal, we can't wait to get a few more "New Member" special events put together! Until then, stay safe :)

** THE USUAL TEXT: **

Welcome to Bristol Werewolf. In September 2020 we'll have been playing Wherewolf, a social deduction game, for SIX years in Bristol. There are a good number of variants of the game that you may have heard of, including One Night Werewolf, Town of Salem and Mafia. Whether you've played a game before or not, you're more than welcome to join our village.

We play a very specific version that's slightly different to those mentioned, and as such even if you've played a variant before we require all members to attend a "First Timer Friendly" session for their first Werewolf event as we do a full introduction at the these events - Although please note, if it's a non-werewolf event, e.g. Board Gaming, you're welcome to join unless it says differently in the event description!

The game of Werewolf is easy to learn, difficult to master. There’s no board, few rules, just talking, thinking, pointing, bluffing and lying! Ten to twenty of us sit in a circle, probably in the back room of a cosy pub. The moderator gives us each a secret role (villager or werewolf), and then over an hour or so we try to figure out who is who. The villagers want to burn all the werewolves at the stake through voting, and the Werewolves want to kill all the villagers at night. And no-one knows for sure who anyone else is…

It’s a great way to meet people, and whether you’re a thinker or a talker, you’re very welcome. So, join the group, RSVP to a "First Timer Friendly" event, and come have some fun!

We should note that this is not a group that welcomes unsolicited dating messages to our members. If you receive unwelcome correspondence, please get in touch with one of our organisers and we'll review the membership status of the sender.

Please make sure you RSVP to events you intend to go to - we need to know numbers beforehand. Thanks.

(Finally, if you want to check out the roles we play with - and don't worry too much about this - everything will be explained when you turn up - you can check them out using the following link. New Players should only need to focus on the roles with ONE moon next to them! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10YI36w7-LJUptwQ7ByW5c4To9DMda0ig )

Werewolf - First Timer Friendly - Placeholder!

Needs a location

This is a placeholder for the time being.

The country is opening up, but cases are still rocketing, and Bristol's got a lot of younger folk who aren't fully vaccinated yet. These sessions will be indoors so we're going to postpone until mid-September for now. We know you guys are enthusiastic to get back into playing but we want to wait until the case numbers are reducing, and get all attendees double jabbed. We understandably don't want to be a super-spreader.

Safety first and all that.

For further details, check out a previous "First Timers" session:
https://www.meetup.com/Werewolf-the-Social-Deduction-game-Bristol/events/267910341/

We'll open RSVP's closer to the time - usually two weeks before the date - if it's safe to do so, so if you can't RSVP yet, that's why :) I'll announce the event when RSVP's open so you should get an email unless you've opted out of notification emails (in which case, opt back in, or check back)

See you soon - We hope!

Board Games at the Pub - Placeholder!

=========================================

Our board game sessions are pretty darn popular and are a great way to jump in and say hello to a few people, new members and regulars alike!

We make no guarantees - obviously - it's wholly dependent on it being safe to meet up in person :) As such we're keeping RSVP closed for the time being and will open them within a couple of weeks as usual. It's a date for the diary for now! When the RSVP's open we'll announce it so assuming you're signed up for notifications, you'll get an email.

We won't bother adding all of the details in here yet but feel free to check out one of our previous 30 person board-game events in the mean time:
