What is Werewolves?

For those of you who are not familiar with the game of Werewolves (also sometimes referred to as ‘Mafia’), it is a game meant to be played with 6 or more players and a moderator. The moderator deals out role cards face down to the players. One of these cards is the Werewolf. The rest are either villagers who have no special abilities, or a specialized role that allows players to anonymously influence the game. Each player secretly looks at their card to learn their role.

All players then close their eyes. The moderator calls the werewolf to wake up and silently indicate which player it wants to eliminate. Once the werewolf has made its choice, the moderator calls on anyone else with a role, one at a time to make their selections. After everyone with a role makes their selections, everyone opens their eyes. The moderator then reveals who the werewolf killed that night. The remaining players then argue over who they think the werewolf is until the moderator calls for a vote. The players then vote on which player they think is the werewolf with the player having the most votes being executed. If they execute the werewolf, the remaining players are considered victorious. If they choose wrong, the cycle repeats until the werewolf is voted out or the werewolf is left alone with one other player in which case the werewolf wins.

What is Werewolves Mobile and how is it different from regular Werewolves?

It’s a mobile game that streamlines the standard game of Werewolves while also adding a unique twist to the game. It’s not a companion app or meant to be played with a single person on a single smartphone. There is no moderator required and the roles the game is traditionally played with can be expanded upon.

It's a free app, with a full version available as an in-app purchase.

How does it work?

Starting the Game

Everyone who wants to play downloads the free Android or iOS app to their smartphones and connects to the same Wi-Fi network. When the game is launched, enter your name and press play. You will automatically be connected to everyone else on the Wi-Fi network. When everyone is ready, press the ready button and the game begins.

The game starts with each player being assigned a role. Once everyone confirms that they know and understand their role, the first night of the game will begin.

The Night Phase

When the night phase begins, each player will be presented with a list of players that they can select for that night. This list will vary depending on each player’s role. For example, the werewolf will be allowed to select any player but themselves. The Defender will be allowed to select any player that he wants. All players regardless of their role make a selection in the night phase. This prevents players from trying to observe who is making selections in the night to determine who has a role. When all players make a selection, the sun rises and it is revealed who was eaten that night.

The Day Phase

After it is revealed who was eaten, every player is given a list of players that are still alive. Each player gets one vote for who they think the Werewolf is. Players cast their vote by selecting the player. When all players cast their vote, it is revealed who will be executed by the villagers under suspicion of being a Werewolf. In the event of a tie, no one is executed. (This can be changed in the full version.) After revealing who is executed, night falls and the cycle repeats.

End Game

The game ends when the Werewolf is executed in which case the remaining villagers win, or when the Werewolf is left alone with only one other villager in which case the Werewolf wins. The game can end after the day or night phases.

Code of Honor

As players die throughout the course of the game, a code of honor is necessary to prevent dead players from revealing their insights before their passing. As such, to preserve the integrity of the game, it is recommended that all dead players refrain from talking about the game or influencing it in anyway. Players should also refrain from showing their screen to other players and talking during the night phase.

What are the roles?

In the current build there are 11 roles total. You can see them below. These are the roles that will be in the alpha and free versions of the game. There are four more roles that will be added to the game before the full release.
