Battle of the Sexes!

This is a twist of the werewolf game to see if Women's Intuition or if Men's Logic is superior in finding Wolves.

There will be 2 teams. One all female, and one all male. There will be 9-11 players on each team. The team that kills the other teams wolves first wins.

Each team will have the following roles.

2 Wolves that will know each other and have full PM abilities.
1 Seer that will know the other team's Traitor.
1 Traitor that will know the other team's Seer and Wolves.
5-7 Villagers.

The Wolves, Seer, and Villagers will win if the other teams wolves are killed.
The Traitor will win if his own teams wolves are killed.

Every night both teams of wolves will kill one member of thier own team's players. They will be allowed to choose to kill a player from the other team one time only.
Each day both teams will vote and the man with the highest vote and the woman with the highest vote will be lynched.
Each night the Seer will get to view one player from the other team and learn if they are a wolf or not.

The game ends as soon as one pair of wolves is dead. If the game ends with two wolves (one female and one male) remaining, then which ever wolf had the fewer final votes on him during the entire course of the game will win.

The game will start March 15 and lynch time will be at 1:00pm BGG.

Female Team
1. Lauramath
2. melissa
3. janiera
4. xandryyte
5. Threnody

I'll sign up for now. Is there a start date?

I recently had my first "is acekim a he or a she" post, so in case it's not obvious I'm a male. I also don't think I fit neatly into intuitive/analytical and can think of counterexamples in this thread to that generalization, but I think the game concept/structure looks very interesting.

I need to know the start date. I wish I could play because I look forward to going against Latria and agnespoodle.

Oh it's buried in the middle. March 15th, lynch 1pm.

You could also have the "wildcard" player who is Player X, and unclear whether male or female. That was really interesting in the Wannabe game.

So the men will vote for the women and the women for the men? Seems to make the Traitor role hard since they can't vote on their own team and don't know who not to vote for on the other team. Maybe if they were a Cultist (knew the other team's wolves) or Sorcerer or evil Seer?.

Oh, well. I'm in.

Obligatory: vote Lauramath

The game is currently signed up for a mid week start March 15. That could change if needed. I did post it but I think I'll go back and bold it..

And as for the generalizations... yes I know that those are broad and not very accurate. My husband has many more "female" tendencies (like observent and detail oriented) than I do, while I have a quite a few "male" tendencies (like one track mind, and think more than feel.)

The generalizations where really just put in for a catch phrase, to get you hooked.

Actually let me explain where the traitor idea came from...

Yes, the men would vote for the women and the women would vote for the men. The male traitor will keep his vote on the women, and the female traitor will keep her vote on the men... but here is why...

In a normal werewolf game... you have to contend your voting on a wolf, against the voting of the wolves on other players... in this game you could easily just get all the men to agree to systematically go down the player list and hope that the last one on the list is not a wolf. But now that you have a traitor in the mix, you have someone who is going to be contending against their voting plans because that player doesn't want the female wolves lynched.

--

A qualification... I thought of this game this morning durring my shower, so if you have some ideas to make it work better let me know. We have over a month to refine it.

I'll have to give that some thought... but if I did that, that player would have to be someone who doesn't sign up in this thread.

I just re-read what you said... you have a good point... I'll have to think about that...

Maybe give them the names of the oposite gender wolves, and remove the PM ability with the seer.

Sounds like a fun 2 team concept. I like Anon's comment about a Cultist type role. A Cursed role could also be made...

Re: Battle of the Sexes! - Sign up
On my drive home, I was thinking about this game and I found a problem. The problem is in the tension. There is none... it is just a who is lucky enough to kill the other side. Day chooses to kill, night would just choose the next on the list... not too exciting..

So here is my rule change..

At night the wolves have to kill someone on their OWN side. So female wolves kill females, and male wolves kill males. This will add tension to the game especially for the wolves. They want to try to kill those people that are providing the least amount of cover but also don't want to kill their own seer. They will however have a ONE TIME ONLY chance to kill someone from the other team. So they have to choose wisely when they want to do that.

I think that will add some really interesting dynamics into the game.

(I'll edit the rules above when I have more time. I'm leaving for a weekend vacation soon.)

I see a problem with that. Here's what I would do as the wolves:

N1-Kill someone from opposing team
N2-Kill werewolf 2
N3-Kill myself
N4 and beyond - No werewolf kills....

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.

If it wasn't for this being during my spring break, I would sign up too. I am not sure what we are doing yet. Mostly likely I won't be home. If things change, I'm in.

I'm confused... why would you do that? If the wolves on one team die, then the game is over and the other team wins... so you just handed the game to the other team?
