Werewolves, Vampires, And Aliens: One Night Ultimate

While most card games involve hours of play time and dozens of cards to manage, One Night Ultimate gives you a fast-paced game you can play in only 10 minutes. Pick your card and take on a secret role to figure out who your friends are and who you’ll need to eliminate in order to win the game. Whether you go for the Werewolves, the Vampires, or the Aliens, One Night Ultimate is sure to have you pulling out the cards at every gathering to liven things up.

Werewolves

Each of the One Night Ultimate games can either be played on its own or added to each other for a fast-paced game of fun. One Night Ultimate Werewolf is the first game in the series, providing you with a ten-minute game full of horror and paranoia. In One Night Ultimate Werewolf, you take the classic tale of a wolf haunting the villagers and you set it all in one terrifying night. Each player gets their own unique role at the beginning of the game, which will then have major consequences once you reach the night phase.

Whether you’re the Troublemaker, the Seer, or one of the evil Werewolves, you’ll find that horrific things have happened in the middle of the night that the whole village is going to have to reckon with. You may even find that, although you started out an evil Werewolf, overnight you became one of the innocent villagers! When everyone wakes you in the morning, each player is tasked with figuring out who they are and who the Werewolves are so that they can stop them before they kill again.\

The twist of the game comes from the switching of the roles that leaves you unsure of where your loyalties lie. Unlike most role-playing games where you’re fully aware of which team you’re one, One Night Ultimate Werewolf keeps you guessing at all times.

Vampires And Aliens

One Night Ultimate Vampire is the next edition of the One Night Ultimate Games, which introduces a brand new “Mark” system. While players begin with a plain mark at the beginning of the game, you may wake up to find you’ve become bitten and are forced to endure immortality as a Vampire. One Night Ultimate Vampire raises the stakes of One Night Ultimate Werewolf by adding deeper levels of deduction and complexity.

One Night Ultimate Alien is the next game in the One Night Ultimate lineup that is very similar to One Night Ultimate Vampire. This game features less role switching but introduces two bungling aliens who have to fight to be the last one left surviving. Figuring out everyone’s motivation for why they want certain people dead can help you piece together the clues to their identities and win the game.

Werewolf Daybreak Expansion

While One Night Ultimate Werewolf can be combined with either the Vampire or the Alien edition, there’s a special expansion called One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak that takes the original Werewolf game and allows you to play up to 10 players. There are no more basic villagers—each of the 11 new roles has a secret hidden ability that can make this fast-paced game even more of a wild ride!

Take Your Pick Of Monster With One Night Ultimate

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is playable by 3-7 players, although some of the other editions and expansions allow you to fit up to 10 players. This game is absolutely perfect for parties of all sizes, and you don’t have to worry about choosing a moderator or having anyone get eliminated. With a playing time of 10 minutes, you can easily fit a game in before dinner or drinks as a fun icebreaker.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is also suitable for ages 8 and up, so younger kids can join in on the fun without getting confused by complex rules or adult themes. Still, One Night Ultimate games are all fun and interesting enough that adults will be able to enjoy the deeper strategy of the game. One Night Ultimate is the perfect game for anyone who loves monsters and using their skills of deduction.

Only Logic Can Crack The Code With Mastermind

Do you love using your skills of deduction to crack codes and solve puzzles? If so, you’ll love Mastermind, a code-breaking game developed by Israeli telecommunications expert and postmaster Mordecai Meirowitz. Meirowitz invented the game Mastermind based off of the pencil and paper game called Bulls and Cows, putting a unique spin on it and swapping out the pencil and paper for colorful plastic pieces. Mastermind is a game of logic and deduction, where players must alternately make and break codes in an attempt to prove who’s the true mastermind.

Codemaker Vs. Codebreaker

In this two-player game, each round will have one player taking on the role of codemaker while the other becomes the codebreaker. The codemaker must secretly place four different colored pegs behind a secret screen on the game board, while the codebreaker is allowed to make several guesses as to which pegs are located where. The codemaker wins points for every guess the codebreaker makes until they either crack the code or run out of turns.

Winning a round requires more than just a lucky guess, however. Codebreakers will have to build upon the information gleaned from their previous guesses in order to figure out the right combination of colored pegs. Every time the codebreaker makes a guess, the codemaker will give them feedback as to which part of their guess is correct. You may have all the right pegs in all the right places, but are they all the right color, too? Only the smartest brain can crack the code fast enough to win the game.

Pieces Of The Game

Mastermind was inspired from the paper and pencil game Bulls and Crows, but the cool little game pieces are what make it truly a standout game. Players will use a cutely designed decoding board to make their guesses, which is set up with cool little rows to place the pegs and view previous guesses. The hidden compartment visible only to the codemaker is a neat little addition that adds to the secrecy of the game.

The colored pegs are also fun to play with, as they make quite a colorful sight when you arrange them across the board. The code pegs come in six different bright colors with round heads, while the smaller key pegs come in black and white with flat heads. One of the most unique elements of Mastermind is that, since you communicate solely through pegs, you don’t even need to speak the same language to play the game!

Mastermind Variations

Mastermind was released in 1972, and since then there have been several different variations that expand upon the simple peg-based game. Royale Mastermind reduces the amount of holes per row to only three instead of four, but adds five differently shaped pegs to make the game even more advanced. Mastermind44 also expands upon the initial game by allowing four players to enjoy it instead of two players.

Word Mastermind combines the logical deduction of Mastermind with the wordplay of Scrabble by forcing you to come up with four letter words for the other player to guess. There’s even a Walt Disney Mastermind that uses your favorite beloved Disney characters instead of colors!

Mastermind: Some Codes Were Made To Be Broken

Mastermind is a two-player game, although the 20-minute playing time means that you can easily pass it around and give everyone a chance to play. Players will decide how many rounds they want to play in advance, so the game really can last as short or as long as you want it to. Mastermind is also suitable for ages 8 and up, so if you’re looking for a game that allows kids to play around with the concept of logic and deduction, Mastermind is the perfect introduction.

Mastermind is a simple game with a very simple premise, although the competitive nature of the game can make for some pretty high stakes. There’s nothing like pulling out the decoding board and lining up the pegs to settle a score on who’s got the higher IQ. If a battle of the minds sounds like your idea of a good time, Mastermind is the game for you!
