Awoooooo! Can you hear the werewolves howling from a distance? The town of Axiom has been struck again. Tensions amongst the citizens have never been higher. The town has been the target of many werewolf attacks over the last few nights. Who might these werewolves be? The mystery still remains…
If you weren’t able to catch on, the story above is a little snippet of the game “Werewolf”. We played this game together for our team holiday party. With our team being remote, and spread out across 5+ different time zones, we enjoy finding and playing different games that everyone can participate in.
With the holidays quickly approaching, we scrounged the internet for different games that would accommodate our growing team. We’ve played a lot of Among Us, but we wanted to mix it up. We quickly found Werewolf, which a few of us have played before, but never in a remote setting with a group of 16 people.
A couple of days before our holiday party, we did a practice run with a handful of our team members. During the practice run, we were able to work through different kinks that would help make this game successful.
Overall, the game was a total hit. We played multiple rounds within a 3-hour timeframe, and only used two channels of communication; Discord and Slack.
Many have asked how we were able to play with a large group of people in a virtual setting. Here is how it worked.
