One Night Werewolf (Amazon Store)

There’s a werewolf on the loose and it could be anyone you know, even you.  Can you help find the werewolf and save your village?

The storyline is a condensed version of one of those Murder Mystery dinner parties and the game plays out like one.  You get a card, look at it, close your eyes, listen to the narrator from the free app and do whatever your role requires.  After that, you open your eyes and try to find the werewolf. If you are the werewolf or his minion, your job is to mislead the players.  Each character comes with his or her own action, with the exception of the villagers. They just sleep there and add to the pile, which is definitely not my favorite character to play.  There’s also a character called the Tanner, whose job is to commit suicide. When my Monday Night Board Game group plays this, we have to leave him out because no one knows how to play him right.  Trust me when I say that I’m one of those people who screwed up with I played him. I also hate getting the werewolf and minion cards because, believe it or not, I’m terrible at bluffing. Therefore, more often than not, I lose.  Other than that, this is one of my favorite board games and I get excited whenever my group plays it. Unlike Werewords, most of the cards have a role to play and the storyline makes much more sense.

This game is exciting and suspenseful.  I give it an 8 out of 10; perfect for any meet up or board game party night.
