This is an interactive reasoning game with at least 5 players and you will belong to 1 of 2 factions, the Villagers faction, and the Werewolves faction. The villagers will not know who is the wolf and who is the villager, but the Werewolf faction can know each other. And the Werewolves must both try to hide their identity and slowly kill the villagers.
The game is played through many rounds and each round has 2 different stages, Morning and Night. Every Night, the Werewolf faction secretly kills a villager and in the Morning, the people will discuss with each other who the Wolf is and why. All players will have to choose one person to hang, but the Werewolves may trick them into making a mistake and hang their people. Fortunately, each night the Prophet is allowed to scan a player to see if he or she is a Werewolf or a villager, providing little useful information to the Villagers faction.
Ma Wolf in my opinion is a game suitable for all ages and should be played with a group of 6 or more people. When playing the game, you will practice different skills such as communication skills, reasoning skills, and the ability to lie without blinking. This game is especially suitable for events such as parties, camping, or collective activities.
