Description:

Werewolves of Miller's Hollow is a game that takes place in a small village which is haunted by werewolves. Each player is secretly assigned a role - Werewolf, Ordinary Townsfolk, or special character such as The Sheriff, The Hunter, the Witch, the Little Girl, The Fortune Teller and so on...

There is also a Moderator player who controls the flow of the game.

The game alternates between night and day phases. At night, the Werewolves secretly choose a Villager to kill. During the day, the Villager who was killed is revealed and is out of the game.

The remaining Villagers (normal and special villagers alike) then deliberate and vote on a player they suspect is a Werewolf, helped (or hindered) by the clues the special characters add to the general deliberation.

The chosen player is "lynched", reveals his/her role and is out of the game. Werewolf is a social game that requires no equipment to play, and can accommodate almost any large group of players.

Advice To The Players

Werewolves: Voting against your partner is an effective way to deflect suspicion from yourself of course, this only works if the townsfolk notice.

The Fortune Teller: Be extremely careful ifyou have discove- red a Werewolf. It may be worth the pain of revealing yourself in order to identify the player, but avoid doing this too early.

Little Girl: : A very powerful character, but very nerve-wrecking to play. Don't hesitate to spy. It may be frightening, but it is necessary to profit quickly before being eliminated. …
