Werewolves is an interactive game for 12-20 people for ages 12 and up. Each player is dealt a card which is their character for the game (only they know their identity). Most are villagers, some with special abilities to help discover the werewolves; others are the werewolves. By night the werewolves kill off one of the villagers and by day the villagers vote to lynch one of the community, hoping to take out one of the werewolves. There are lots of twists and variables and no two games are the same.
