Ultimate Werewolf


Team: Switcher


Forgetting your role in Ultimate Werewolf isn’t a good thing, except when you’re the Drunk. In this role, the player is unaware of their identity or abilities until the third night, when sobriety hits and they suddenly remember their actual role. As one of the few team-switching roles, the Drunk may discover they are on a different team than originally thought once their memory returns. This unpredictable role reversal makes the Drunk an entertaining wildcard that keeps players guessing.

While the Drunk can assume roles like the Hoodlum or Doppelganger, they will miss the opportunity to use those abilities. 

Assign Simple Roles:

Consider using simple roles for the Drunk. This makes the transition easier to manage. However Dynamic roles, can shake the game up and make things more interesting for the players.

Always wake the true role:

Always wake up the new role. Even if the role has not been used yet, be sure to wake this role from the beginning of the game. Failure to do so could easily let players learn who the Drunk truly is.

Discreet Reveal:

Players during the night are listening for the Moderator’s position or their neighbor’s movements. Walk around to throw off the player’s perception of what is going on when you wake the Drunk.
