On the last Friday of June 2014, we gathered at Yotsuya Local Community Center in Shinjuku, and had a fantastic night by having werewolf games, board games and situation games.
There are approximately 25 people joined and half of them were new comers or playing for the first time the werewolf games. We also welcomed guests from overseas, including the USA, the UK and Egypt. We separated into small group (8 to 10 people), and enjoyed werewolf games.
In small groups, there are two werewolves, one fortuneteller, one knight, one hunter, and three to five villagers. The participants seemed to enjoy active discussion with other participants to find out werewolves. Finally, we enjoyed a big circle of werewolf game, about 23 people participated. Unfortunately we did not have enough time for the discussion, the participants focused on conversations and tried hard to find five werewolves.
The next game event will be held on July 11th, and the venue will be the same with the game night on 27th June, at Yotsuya Local Community Center from 7 p.m. We would welcome new comers and regular members, and hope to have exciting discussion with you!! (*We also have a werewolf game night and Julien’s farewell party on July 26th at Studio PETU in Harajuku)
Kristian, thank you for joining as a game master, from small circle (8 to 10 people) to the big one (approximately 23 people joined). Thanks to you, new comers were able to understand the rules of werewolf so that they joined the discussions actively and seemed to enjoy it.
Saori-san, thank you for joining as a game master of DIXIT (2010 Spiel des Jahres, which is an award for board and card games) and “Soup by Sea Turtle”, which is a popular situation puzzle in the USA. Participants seemed to enjoy inferring, and they might have felt that they need more flexible thoughts and imaginative power to commit to these games.
