Hey guys just wondering what game you would get or expansions. Anything to avoid? Should I get just this the core set? Any ideas would be helpful

Thanks in advance.

If you are playing with about 8 people or less, I'd recommend One Night Ultimate Werewolf instead.

I also enjoy Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition more than standard Werewolf, although it has a more 'board-gamey' less 'party-gamey' feel to it.

But yeah, if you are planning or really large groups, get Ultimate Werewolf: Ultimate Edition, and add Ultimate Werewolf Artifacts if you can.

My group is most often around 5 people. We try to keep it around this because most of the games I have are from 1-6 players if we go over that amount it gets very limited on what we can play.

What makes the one night version better for smaller groups?

Do you loose out on some of the complexity and depth since it only focuses on one night and plays so quickly?

One Night is significantly better at 5. Has way more depth and interesting things going on.

I think the one-night version is just a better, more fun game ... it just can't play up to the massive numbers regular werewolf can.

It doesn't feel any less 'deep' or complex.. I actually find it more interesting. It also has the advantage that it's so short you can play it several times in the time it takes to play 1 regular werewolf, and there is no player elimination, were someone killed in the first night just sits and waits for everyone else to finish playing.

I really like the option for the for the one-night Android app.. that looks and sounds really cool.

Just kinda liked all the different rolls that came with the other edition.
Seemed like it would add more depth and replay to the game.

The problem is, most roles make very little sense to use at 5p. Werewolf is really a "Best with 11" game for me.

You also should check out The Resistance: Avalon.

While I love Werewolf, you really do need at least 9 people IMO to have a good game. I've played with 5 a couple of times and it's just not a great experience because the game's over too quickly and there aren't a lot of good setup possibilities.

With 5, I second the nomination of The Resistance or The Resistance: Avalon depending on your theme preference.
