Faiduttian (adjective): a game which seems to be made by Bruno Faidutti, the author of Citadels and Mission: Red Planet.

Most of Bruno Faidutti's games such as Citadels, Mission: Red Planet, Castle and so on contain some common traits, such as a heavy use of different characters (each one with different special abilities), role selection and so on.

What games would you describe as "faiduttian", except of course Bruno Faidutti's own games?

The first game that come into my mind. Faidutti himself added the game in his Ideal Game Library, citing Ruse & Bruise as very similar to his own games.

Nice game, yet a little too much random when played in more than 3 players.

Contact Points: The squared cards remember Castle cards a lot, while some characters such as the Assassin are almost identical at their Citadels counterparts (althought the game mechanics are totally different).

It really seems Citadel's nephew for lots of aspects. And it is a good card game too.

Contact Points: different character cards to chose from, each one with his own special ability, all of them belonging to the king's court.

This has some of the simultaneous role selection mechanism that's prominent in Citadels, along with some take-that elements that can keep the game going for far longer than it should. The two times I've played this game, I thought of Bruno.

I read the rules -> "Oooh! Seems to me Citadels witchy sister!" -> I buy the game.

Contact Points: character selection, each one with different abilities in the flavour of Citadels.

- Each player holds a matching deck of character cards.
- Characters have special abilities
- Playing one of the cards allows you to pick up all of your previously played cards

This one seems to sum up lots of faiduttian features. Too bad it seems sold out almost everywhere.

Contact Points: Relies a lot on the different characters, to be played in a similar way to Castle.

Clash of the titans!

Without any doubt, Colossal Arena feels like the most faiduttian of Knizia's games.

Character's special powers, simple rules, fast gameplay and even secret betting.

Now it would be interesting to define which of the Bruno Faidutti's games is the most knizian...

Contact Points: Twelve different characters, each one with his own special power to be used by players to change the round results.

Well, Citadels could be a Verraterian game, Faidutti said he took the Citadedels' character selection from this one.

Similar from Verräter, but with a very different feel.

Speaking or role selection, isn't this the most popular? Bruno Faidutti definitely could have designed this one

This one has more than one resemblance to a Faiduttian game. It has a base mechanic similar to Draco & Co, plus it heavily relies on the different characters.
