There are plenty of variations of Mafia/Werewolf - in The Villagers you play villagers being picked off by mysterious unknown plague doctors - which might seem a little on the nose right now.
Everyone knows the basic gameplay of werewolf - Villagers try and unmask their enemies in the day phase (while the plague doctors try and hide in the general population) and then at night... but The Villagers adds its own unique twist, 16 different character roles to mix gameplay up as well as some wonderfully evocative art.
This is the Kickstarter edition.
The Villagers is a “mafia” or “werewolf” type of social deduction party game played by two teams: The Plague Doctor team, and the Villager team. The game requires a Moderator who runs the game.
The Villagers has 23 different roles, and is set during the time of the Bubonic Plague.
In The Villagers, you’re either with the Plague Doctor team or the Villager team. The Plague Doctors will try to infect a new Villager each night, while the Villagers try to deduce who in their midst are Plague Doctors in hiding. The Plague Doctors are posing as Villagers too, so who do you trust? Exile a new player each day, but beware, as new infections plague your village each night.
