It seemed like such a good idea. A few friends out in the wilds. A few beers, a few laughs, telling each other ghost stories in the old cabin. And as with all good ideas, things went awry when people started dying...

Do you ever wonder what’s going on in all these Werewolf games you keep seeing pop up? Did you ever drop in on one of them only to be confronted with 10 pages of inscrutable rules? Well, this is your chance to get in on the Werewolf action and give it a try. This game is primarily for new players and features just the basic rule-set, none of the chrome.

Give the rules a perusal and then if you’re interested sign up by replying to this post. A minimum of 9 players are needed but only a maximum of 11 will be accepted, if you sign up after that you will be an alternate.

If you are interested in Werewolf but have not yet played then THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!

The game will start when full.

RULES

Werewolf is a game of accusation, deduction, lying, reverse psychology and bandwagoning. Moreover, it's a lot of fun.

The rules are pretty simple: The players represent a village and each member of the village has a role which is kept secret. Most players are ordinary villagers but two or more are werewolves and one is a seer, there are some other roles which are explained later. The goal of the villagers is to eliminate all of the werewolves. The goal of the werewolves is to achieve 1:1 parity with the villagers at which time they can openly rise up and overwhelm the villagers thus winning the game.

Gameplay
The game consists of two different phases: Night and Day. The game begins with a Night phase.

Night
In a night phase the moderator will ask the werewolves to choose a villager to “eat” and also ask the seer to choose one player to “view”. The werewolves should decide amongst themselves using the board's PM(private message) function who their victim will be and inform the moderator of their choice. The seer should decide who his target will be and inform the moderator of his choice.

The werewolves' victim is dead and is removed from the game, but the rest of the village won't find out until daytime who the victim is and what their secret role was.

The seer's target has his role (villager or werewolf) revealed to the seer only.

Day
During the daytime the villagers all wake up and find that one of their own has been killed by the werewolves. At this point at least one player is a werewolf and so someone is gonna get lynched.

During this phase all players, including werewolves who have assumed villager form, must discuss their suspicions. Eventually it will reach a point where villagers start to cast votes for who they feel is a werewolf and must be lynched. Votes are cast by placing bold text in a post like this (the square brackets are important):

[VOTE PLAYER A].

If you want to change a vote, you must unvote first (this is required by the automatic vote tallier). Thus:

[Unvote Player A]
[Vote Player B]


At the end of the day (which is defined as 3:00pm BGG time), the player who received the most votes is lynched and is removed from the game. That player’s role will be revealed to the village.

When the lynching is done all the villagers go back to their homes to sleep and the next night begins.

Winning
In case it's not clear: The villagers win if they kill all of the werewolves. The werewolves win if they kill enough villagers so that their numbers are equal. At this point the werewolves can openly rise up and slaughter the rest of the villagers.

Special Roles

Roles will be assigned randomly; the Moderator will inform you of your role via PM. The following is a description of the roles in the game.

Seer – There is one Seer in the game and he is on the villagers team. Each night the Seer may choose one other player to “view” by sending a PM to the moderator with that player’s name. The moderator will tell the Seer whether his chosen target is a werewolf or a human. The Seer will have a random non-wolf view on Night 0 (i.e. before the game starts).

Werewolf – There are two werewolves in the game. The werewolves know who each other are and may send PM’s between themselves to discuss strategy. At night the wolves PM the moderator the name of the player they’d like to eat. In the morning that player’s death will be announced along with his special role.

Hunter – There is one Hunter in the game and he is on the villagers team. If at the end of the game the Hunter is alone with one wolf then he will kill that wolf and what would normally have been a wolf win will be a village win. When lynched, the Hunter is only revealed as an ordinary Villager.

Sorcerer – There is one sorcerer in the game and he is on the wolves team. The Sorcerer is an evil human and wants the wolves to win. If the wolves do win then the Sorcerer wins also, but if the villagers win then the Sorcerer loses. However, the Sorcerer does not know who the wolves are and the wolves do not know the Sorcerer. Crucially, the Sorcerer will appear as a simple human if viewed by the Seer

Villagers – There are four to six regular villagers in the game. The villagers have no special abilities other than their own deductive ability. They will have to vote wisely to win the game.

Miscellaneous
1) Only the wolves may communicate privately between themselves. All other players may not send PM’s (unless to the Moderator as called for by your role or to ask a question). The Cassandra Communication System will be available for use. Everyone will have a chat-room to talk to the Moderator.
2)If there is a tie in the lynch vote then the player with the longest held continuous vote against him will be lynched. Voting will be tallied automagically by Cassandra, so be sure to format your vote correctly.
3)Editing of posts for typos and other minor corrections is allowed but please keep it to a minimum. Importantly, vote posts are INVALID if they are edited.
4)You may vote nightfall to lock your vote for the day. Only do this if you are sure, as you will not be able to change your vote for the remainder of the day, but it can help resolve a day more quickly when all are agreed. If enough nightfall votes are logged, then the day can end early (defined as enough that the result cannot be altered by the remaining voters). To vote nightfall:
[vote nightfall]

If you have any questions please ask. I encourage you to sign up below by clicking on the link in the sign-up post from Cassandra. This will direct you to the Cassandra site and you may need to register there before you sign up. Veterans will give up their spots for any new players.

Welcome to the game!

Re: The Cabin in the Woods - a basic Werewolf game
For those of you who aren't aware, Shuggy is responsible for the Name of the Wolf series, whuch has some of the best storytelling I've seen in all of the games that I've read. He also put the same care and attention to the story into the other game that he ran.

Reading those games made me feel like I want to play in a game that he's running. And this is my chance...

blush thanks for the kind words. I have tended to Mod less because of how much of my day it ends up eating - and that is just for straightforward WW games.

Hopefully I can live up to the hype...

Re: The Cabin in the Woods - a basic Werewolf game
I just ate a newbie who tried to sign up on Cassandra.

Look at all you people offering to drop out in favor of newbies! That's pathetic! There has to be at least a couple of old guard in here to guide and misguide them. How else will they learn the numerous in-jokes and the complicated logic of poisoning a Sicilian with iocane powder when death is on the line?

Hey, maybe you should create another account and pretend to be a newbie in a newbie... oh... been there and done that? How sad.

Re: The Cabin in the Woods - a basic Werewolf game
Close to full, and so many newbies - why most of you haven't even played 100 games yet.

By the by, I will ask the inevitable lynch question: what time is best?

Here are the options:

Dawn at 5pm BGG is pretty much fixed I'm afraid, so I can do:

1. Lynch as advertised at 3pm BGG.
2. Lynch at 4pm BGG, but only an hour after lynch to get orders in.
3. Lazy Mod-style where lynch is at 5pm BGG but all orders for the coming night must be in by lynch time or VERY shortly (by the time I am done with the flavor) thereafter.

Mostly looking at the no-internet-at-work folks here...

Option 1 would be fine for me. But I'm used to playing difficult lynchtimes.

3pm or 5pm would be best. I'm not sure I want to have 2 games with the same lynch time...
