As the title says, for $10 you can get yourself a fantastic Werewolf game set, and it’s all thanks to Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin’s Kickstarter project (which was funded in just a few short minutes).
I’ve written about this classic game in the past, but if this is the first time you have heard of it, werewolf is a simple game that involves deceiving your friends. Yay lies! The original creator explains it the best though…
“Werewolf is a simple game for a large group of people (seven or more.) It requires no equipment besides some bits of paper; you can play it just sitting in a circle. I’d call it a party game, except that it’s a game of accusations, lying, bluffing, second-guessing, assassination, and mob hysteria.” – Andrew Plotkin
More from Max Temkin’s website:
“Werewolf is based on the game Mafia, which was created in 1986 by Dimitry Davidoff, a psychology student in the USSR. In 1997 Andrew Plotkin added the Werewolf theme and documented the rules. Werewolf has gone on to become a staple of tech conferences and gaming conventions, and many players, including myself, consider it to be one of the most difficult and elegant games ever created.
There are dozens of published versions of Werewolf, but I think many of them are overcomplicated and ugly, and some even require special parts and pieces to play.”
So Max is making his own set of simple, affordable, beautiful Werewolf cards.
Each set comes with 20 cards in a custom zipper case, with a keychain loop so you can hook on to your backpack.
Anyone planning on getting a deck?
