I looked at some of the editions available on Amazon (I got a gift card for Christmas) and I can't figure out what's what. One of them says it comes with Night Terrors, but the other two say nothing. The descriptions are the same for all of them. I don't know what to look for. Can someone help? I want to buy the one with the most included in it.

Get the one with Night Terrors, as that is the most recent version.

The Artifacts and Classic Movie Monster expansions are sold separately.

Should we expect a Super Ultimate Edition in the near future?

We definately "should" expect it.

But I don't think they have any plans for one.

First off, if you want as much stuff as possible make sure you get Ultimate Edition rather than Compact Edition. Compact is a perfectly good set, but Ultimate has more of everything.

Now, there have been three printings of UWUE as far as I know:

2008 printing:



2010 printing:



2011 printing:



Detailed differences are on the game page, but roughly speaking:

2008 edition didn't have rules text on the cards.

2010 edition removed some duplicate cards and added Classic Movie Monsters

2011 edition removed Classic Movie Monsters and added Night Terrors

So the most recent version is the one with Night Terrors in. For a 'complete' set you'd then add in CMM and Artifacts, as Ted suggests.

Thanks for the help. I did end up getting the 2011 edition and have enjoyed looking over all the different roles.

I've been afraid that we wouldn't get a chance to play very often since so many players are required to play it right, but we did get in a few games yesterday with eight players plus the moderator. It was pretty fun. The score was perfectly balanced with two werewolves, but the villagers won both games. It seems that when two people are knocked out each round, it goes pretty quick.

If getting enough players is an issue, note that you can play the game with a minimum of five:

Werewolf
Minion (Evil Villager)
Seer
Hunter
Villager

No-reveal.

The version we play a lot on the forums is slightly different:

Villager
Seer (views for Werewolf; gets a pre-game view)
Parity Hunter (doesn't get a retaliatory kill; instead wins if one-on-one with the wolf)

Sorcerer (views for Seer; gets a pre-game view)
Werewolf (kills each night; doesn't get a pre-game kill)

No reveal upon death
