Werewolves of the Dark Arts (Social and Silly)

Games will be themed to have some of the sillier roles, giving players a chance to interact socially without the need to focus strictly on the gameplay. Due to the use of advanced cards, new players are not recommended to jump straight in. New players -are- allowed should they wish to join. Crude behavior will not be allowed; silly is fine, but should be kept to a reasonable level.

Werewolves of the Dark Arts (No Reveal)

In the normal game, when someone dies, their role is revealed and everyone gets to see what it was they lynched, or what it was that got killed. In a No-Reveal game, the village is left with no such verification. When someone dies, they are silenced forever, and you have only their previous words to go by. The atmosphere that is created by such a mode is very intense, and as such, no new players will be allowed to participate for the first two games. This game will also be capped at 30 players. NOTE! Expect a 30-player No-Reveal game to last up to three hours. Leaving early is very unhealthy for the structure of the game, Villager or not!
