I want to buy the party game Werewolf, either "The Werewolves of Millers Hollow" or "Ultimate Werewolf" , but there seems to be different versions and expansions, and the dependencies are unclear for me. Which expansions needs the original game or not, or obsoletes other parts of the game?

  • The Werewolves of Millers Hollow
    • Original Game
    • New Moon - Requires Original Game?
    • Characters - Requires Original Game?
    • The Village - Standalone? Does it make the other games obsolete?
    • Special edition - Standalone? Can it be used in combination with any of the expansions?
    • I know there is a big box version that contains many/all expansions. Is this the same as "The Village" or does it contain that and more?
  • Ultimate Werewolf
    • Original Game (?)
    • Classic Movie Monsters - Requires Original Game?
    • Night Terrors - Requires Original Game?
    • Artifacts - Requires Original Game?
    • Urban Legends - Requires Original Game?
    • Wolfpack - Requires Original Game?
    • Deluxe edition - This is the original game with an expansion? Does it overlap with the other expansions?
  • Based on boardgamegeek.com/boardgamefamily/2989/werewolf-mafia there are about 100 games that meet your criteria. Listing them all is not something this site is designed for.

    @bwamer Yes, I see. The intention of my question is to understand the dependencies of the most mainstream/common ones. I have edited my question to concern only this.

  • @bwarner, He didn't ask to have them all listed. He asked specific questions about specific version of the game.

    @PaulMag, Why don't you visit the pages of these games on BGG, find the majority of your answers, and come back with more specific questions.

  • This question is no longer Too Broad. You may not enjoy the tedious task of researching and writing up the dependencies for a set of thirteen games, but that is not a valid reason to close the question. The question as currently written is absolutely answerable in a tiny amount of space. The OP thinks that a single question with thirteen games is better than thirteen questions with a single game, and that's his prerogative.

    Did you mean the Pact for the last pack for the Werewolf of Millers Hollow? Feb 8, 2019 at 1:54
  • @AxelAdvento YES! After over 4 years that was finally cleared up. I have, however, played quite a bit of Ultimate Werewolf these years. :)
