Perfect game for all ages. 15-25 min activity

You can use conditionals, or adapt it to any other level.


Print and cut out the cards. You should have every character in the deck. If you have a big class you can add another wolf and more villagers.

The mail objective of the game is to find and kill the wolf.

Give your students one card. They have to see what is their character. Then tell them to go to "sleep" Everyone should close their eyes (except for the girl, who can discretely see what everybody is doing).

Call the wolf out and tell it to point a student to "eliminate".

Now tell everybody to wake up. The studentes take turns and start voting, trying to guess who the wolf is. Let them speculate and ask them why they are voting for that classmate.

For higher levels use conditionals.
i/e: If Mary was killed, the wolf must / could / might be Joan.

From the second round continue calling out the wolf first, then call the fortune teller (who can see a classmate's paper), the devil (can revive itself 2 times), the angel (can revive an ally 3 times), the minion (changes its paper with someone else), the witch (can swap 2 classmates' papers). Each of them point and try to be as discrete as they can so they don't get caught.

I have played this game for years and kids and adults have a blast playing it!
