Ultimate Werewolf

Today, Bézier Games announced that Ultimate Werewolf Legacy will be released at Gen Con in August.  Many are familiar with their game Ultimate Werewolf where players are given secret roles are either working together to identify the werewolves (if you’re a villager) or working together to get rid of all of the villagers (if you’re a werewolf).
Ultimate Werewolf Legacy adds elements that make decisions made in this social deduction game impact in future games.  In addition to a secret role, players will be given a family card that incentivizes players to work with their family members…as long as nobody in that family is secretly working against them.
Players are able to gain special abilities that carry on from game to game, too.  The players aren’t the only thing evolving throughout the game, though.  The village itself will change throughout the game.  Both of these elements lend to high variability in the game as you can play through the campaign multiple times with different results.
Ultimate Werewolf Legacy implements an 80+ page diary that walks the game moderator through each session.
The Diary has been designed so that players with no previous werewolf playing experience can both play and moderate. The Diary is structured into 5 distinct chapters with 3 game sessions in each chapter, as well as an introductory Preface game session. Players can jump in and out for individual sessions, but they’ll have the most fun if they player all the sessions in a chapter. Each chapter can be played in a single evening. At the end of the 16 game session campaign, the Diary will be a record of exactly what happened in your village, and who was ultimately responsible for what it became over time.
A replay pack is available for purchase for those who wish to get a fresh diary and new family cards in order to play the game again.
Ultimate Werewolf Legacy was co-designed by Ted Alspach, (Ultimate Werewolf, Werewords, and One Night Ultimate Werewolf) and Rob Daviau (Pandemic Legacy, Seafall, Betrayal Legacy, and Downforce).
 
Ultimate Werewolf Legacy and Replay Packs can be preordered at beziergames.com, and will ship in August 2018.

While the One Night series has been going crazy on Kickstarter, Bezier Games hasn’t forgotten about it’s older brother, Ultimate Werewolf.  So to keep the game fresh, Bezier Games has just released a new expansion to the game called Ultimate Werewolf: Hunting Party.  This new expansion pack adds several new roles to increase the chaos and make things even more interesting for your werewolf games.  The new included roles are:

  • The Huntress – a one-shot wonder guaranteed to kill her target
  • The Mad Bomber – takes out the two players closest to him if he’s killed
  • The Revealer – has the ability to kill every single werewolf in just one night…unless he’s wrong about who’s a werewolf, in which case he dies
  • The Mystic Seer – she knows the exact role of her target
  • The Mentalist – knows if any pair of players are on the same team or not
  • The Alpha Wolf – can turn a player into a wolf at night instead of eliminating him

So if you want some more variety in your Werewolf game, head on over to Bezier Games to get your copy today.

Bezier Games has announced Werewords, a social deduction word guessing game set in the Ultimate Werewolf universe. In Werewords, players try to guess a secret word by asking yes or no questions. If they figure out the word, they win. However, one player is a werewolf, they know the secret word, and will try to mislead you, because if you cannot get the word the werewolf wins. The Werewolf needs to be subtle and sly, because if other players will win if they can identify the Werewolf at the end of the game.

Like in Werewolf, one player is secretly the Seer, and they know the secret word. The Seer can try to steer the group towards the correct answer, but if the Werewolf identifies the Seer at the end, the Werewolf wins! The Mayor is the player answering the groups’ question with a pile of limited tokens – “Yes/No”, “Maybe”, “So Close” and “Correct”. If the Mayor runs out of tokens, the group cannot ask any more questions, and must accuse someone of being a Werewolf. Uniquely, it is totally possible that the Mayor himself is a Werewolf, and is falsely answering the questions! But again, if he is too blatant, the group may suspect and steal victory from his paws. As in Ultimate Werewolf, other roles for larger groups abound, such as the Beholder and the Minion. Werewords comes with a custom app, containing thousands of words, as well as the ability to create their own word lists.

Werewords is due to be released in June, likely at the Origins Game Fair. Werewords can be pre-ordered at Bezier Games.

werewolf legacy

That’s right, another legacy game from Rob Daviau, and this time it’s Ultimate Werewolf Legacy, designed together with Ted Alspach.  Werewolf itself has been around since 1986 and has had a number of expansions and re-implementations done along the way.  With artifacts, additional characters, additional werewolves, there is just a lot of content already out for the game, so a legacy version of the game could be interesting.  The legacy game is meant to be played in chapters of three games each, and the decisions of one game will carry over and affect the next.  Along the way characters may earn titles that give them special abilities beyond what their role normally gives them.  Also of note is that the game will allow for changing the moderator, that way you won’t have to be the NPC leader of the group for the entire game.  Look for this game to hit shelves some time in 2017.
