To begin when filled

(*Rules shamelessly stolen from MDP4828's Curse of the Werewolf--THANKS!!)

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 for new players only and features just the basic ruleset, 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!

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 VOTE PLAYER A. At the end of the day (which is defined as 7:00pm 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 on Monday night. 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.

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.

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 PM’s 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)

2) If there is a tie in the lynch vote then the player with the longest held continuous vote against him will be lynched.

If you have any questions please ask. I encourage you to sign up below. Welcome to the game!

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

As I prefer basic games myself even though I've played a lot, I'll ask to be an alternate in case by some fluke you don't fill up.

Davidme,

I would actually prefer to have a couple of experience player involved to direct the game should it get slow. Beowulf is playing so if you want to jump in too that would be great.

I'm still learning this game, too. I could use some pointers from a more experienced player!

The earliest surviving epic poem written in English: http://www.legends.dm.net/beowulf/

"Beowulf Schaffer" is a very cool recurring character in Larry Niven's science fiction novels.

Nice try.laugh Beowulf, I'll help you out:

Last basic game (seanp's), they lynched me the "so-called" experienced player D1 while I was AFK and killed truly experienced player lauramath N1. Then this so-called "newbie" Wil_Upchurch helped lead everyone correctly to 3 consecutive lynches of wolves.

So don't just kill off the experienced players, wolves. We can be as clueless as the rest. It's your fellow newbies that are dangerous.

Oh, I see. I thought "Beowulf" was a game that was "playing" somewhere that you were recommending.

So...I'm in?

Funnily enough I was just thinking yesterday that I wish someone would start a game for newbies - it looks like you guys have such fun with this. So, if there is still room , I'd love to join in.

thanks

I'd like to try if there is room. I've never played it on BGG, and only played in one session in person.

Far from experienced yet no more a newbie. I would like to play if you have room, or having me as an alternate is fine too.

I have played on BGG three times, I think.

I would like to play if there is space and the fact I have played before is OK.

Re: Basic Werewolf - Newbies encouraged--others needed to fill
Roles are sent.

A few balance issues I would like some opinions on.

1. Should the Seer be allowed a Night 0 view?

2. The sorceror in this game does not get views. Should that be altered to allow the sorceror to view for the seer?

As soon as we get that hashed out I will post the daybreak.
