The One Night Ultimate Werewolf game uses a similar design to other Ultimate Werewolf game series, but consists of only a single night. Everyone is assigned a role card, and then closes their eyes for the one night round. During that night, players perform actions based on their role, which are modified from how the roles work in the full game. Roles such as the Robber and Troublemaker can swap cards, so some players may discover when night ends that they have a different role than the one they began with. If a werewolf is eliminated, the villagers win. If a villager is eliminated, the werewolf team wins. If the Tanner is eliminated, the Tanner wins.
The game can be played in about 10 minutes, with anywhere from 3 to 10 players, so it can make for a amazing party game on its own, without the elimination aspect of the multi-round structure of the full Ultimate Werewolf game series. The game is satisfying with more players, as the possibilities for intrigue become more involved. It comes with a total of 12 different roles, but if that’s not enough for you, there's always another option.
