Werewolf: How a parlour game became a tech phenomenon

No votes yet

A recent feature in Wired looks at party game Werewolf/Mafia, and covers a session with Chicago Googler Brian Fitzpatrick, O'Reilly author Rich Gibson, and Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales:

"I was sure of only three things," Wales remembers. "One, I was not a werewolf. Two, one of these bastards was an amazing liar. And three, the other guy was a total moron. I just couldn't figure out which was which."

The piece includes interviews with game inventors Dimma Davidoff and Andrew Plotkin.
