We are happy to introduce today The Werewolves of Millers Hollow the very famous social game from Philippe des Pallières and Hervé Marly (Lui-Même).
Werewolves is one of the most played game in the world: because it is very accessible and lightweight, you can find it everywhere, and even non-regular gamers know it already.
During a Werewolves game, each player has a secret role: some players are nice villagers, but some are Werewolves. Each night, the Werewolves are killing a villagers, and each day, the villagers are voting to execute one of them - if possible, a werewolf. To win as a villager, you must eliminate all Werewolves, and to win as a Werewolves you need to eliminate all villagers.
Werewolves is a game that is way deeper than it looks like. Deduction and bluff is important, but also strategy. To make the online adaptation even more "strategic", we chose to make immediately available the Village expansion. With this expansion, each villager has a visible role (ex: Teacher) in addition to his/her secret role. It introduces some asymmetry from the beginning of the game, and give you additional interesting possibilities. If you find the base game too simple, we recommend you to try it
Adapting a game primarily based on discussion was not an easy things to do. However, we took it as a challenge, and did our best to keep the spirit of the original game. We did special adaptations to the BGA interface just for this game, and we worked with talented graphic designers to create the beautiful village you can see in the adaptation (thank you Maëva Kosmic, Christine Deschamps and Ian Parovel for this). We hope you'll enjoy it!
Werewolves is available as a Premium game on BGA: only Premium members can create new tables, and everyone (even non-Premiums) can join.
Board Game Arena would like to thanks Lui-Même for making possible to have this great game here
