The Kickstarter for Joey Vigour’s “turn everyone into a werewolf” card game has been funded 16 times over, and there’s still almost a week left! You can check out the post I wrote about GROWL a few months ago for details about how the game works, and here’s a recap from the campaign page:
There are werewolves among us! We’ll stab each other and try to avoid getting bitten, but when a human receives their third bite, they secretly become a wolf and turn against us!
GROWL is like Werewolf (aka Mafia), but as a quick 10-15 minute card game for 4-10 players of all ages
- The cards in your hand reveal whether you are a human or a werewolf
- Humans turn into werewolves if they get bitten 3 times!
- Everyone gets to bite, stab, heal, and give gold, so we all have power, not just the loud people
- Doesn’t require a moderator or phone app
There’s a lot going on with this campaign. There were 2o stretch goals, all of which have been obliterated, a bunch of add-ons, and a social engagement aspect called “The Wolf Hunt” that seems way too complicated for me, but which obviously works, given how well things are going. If you just want the game, you can sidestep the shenanigans and go directly to the $16 or $24 dollar tiers.
Congrats to Joey and his team for what looks like a super successful project! If you want to get a copy for yourself, head this way.
