Picture of Play Werewolf
Werewolf is a game where each player deceives the others while trying to hunt down the werewolf and kill it before the whole village becomes food for the beast. Can you survive the night?

I did not invent this game; Dimitry Davidoff did, in 1986, under the name "Mafia". I didn't come up with the werewolf version, either. I am merely adding my own personal flair, along with my own graphics. Please enjoy this game.

Step 1: The Objective


The objective is best described for all players in one word: Survive !
The villagers desperately want to kill the werewolf so that they can live for another day. The werewolf, in turn, wants to kill all the villagers so that it can survive the game.

Step 2: The Characters: The Moderator

The Moderator is the one who reads the votes and makes the announcements of what's going on, to protect the identities of the Werewolves and the Seer. They tally the votes, they announce the victims, and they make sure the game is played according to the rules. This is the easiest role in terms of strategy, as the moderator can't really win or lose, but it's the hardest as far as responsibility goes. It takes a lot of effort to hold one's tongue when everyone else is arguing away at each other.

It's your job to : Keep track of who the Werewolf  and the Seer are
Keep track of who is alive and who is dead.
notify the players when it's nighttime
ask the werewolves who they want to kill
ask the seer who they want to know about and give them a reply of "Werewolf" or "Villager"
Notify the players when it's daytime
Notify the players when it's time for a vote
Notify the players if they killed the werewolf or an innocent villager

Hello, the game you describe sounds quite familiar. I already played a version like that in France. It's called "the WereWolves of Millers Hollow".

Did you get inspiration from this (excellent) game?

there have been many versions of this game. i, and many others, have adapted it to our preferences. the version you are talking about is just one of many. there's another version i've played that's based of the HP Lovecraft universe, with similar rules and roles to play.
OK thank you for the precisions!
