Hi, I'm considering buying this game, problem is its only about twice a year we have more than 4 people together to play games, I'm thinking this game won't work with 4, so I was wondering does anyone know of any similar games for 4 players? Thanks.

Shadows over Camelot: The Card Game is a card game with a traitor mechanism.

Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition works very well for 3 or 4 players, but still better with 5+, I think.

It doesn't play anything like the Werewolf game that you've probably heard of. In this one, players are trying to deduce which face down cards on the table picture Werewolves, and will lynch facedown cards each turn, rather than each other. Players select different abilities each turn that let them manipulate the voting, peek at facedown cards, etc, and for the better actions you often have to give up some of your vote cubes, so there's kind of a worker placement and resource management aspect.

Even though the players' goal is to eliminate the villager cards, and not each other, there are still werewolf players who are trying to kill all of the non-Werewolf cards. They will often try to hide their identity so they can mislead the others into lynching their own.

Maybe you could give a try at Witch Hunt ? This is a free to print and play game with only 18 cards that falls in the hidden role/hidden objective mechanism but with a fun twist: every player has to choose his side every turn...

I strongly recommend you try One Night Werewolf. I have played nearly every traitor game ever created, and this one works best at 4, I think.

You could have a look at Room 25. It says 1-6 players on the box, as it has a number of different play modes. Suspicion Mode is the one with the traitors (guards) and that plays from 4-6. Admittedly, I've not played it with 4 players yet. I've only played it with 5 and had such a good time that I bought it.

With 4 players there are 4 out of 5 loyalty cards used (1 guard, 4 prisoners) which means that it is possible that you don't have a guard, but I imagine that the paranoia would ramp up.
