ultimate wereUltimate Werewolf: One Night



One Night Ultimate Werewolf is a fast game for 3-10 players in which everyone gets a role: one of the dastardly Werewolves, the tricky Troublemaker, the helpful Seer, or one of a dozen different characters, each with a special ability. In the course of a single morning, your village will decide who is a werewolf…because all it takes is lynching one werewolf to win! There is no elimination and each game last about ten minutes.


Because One Night Ultimate Werewolf is so fast, fun, and engaging, you’ll want to play it again and again, and no two games are ever the same!

You can catch his kickstarter here.

More interviews from Con on the Cob will be coming soon.

City Of Horror

$ 50.00

In City of Horror, you’re playing a group of humans faced with a zombie invasion. The struggle against the dead is important, but your own survival is vital! To win, you’ll have to make alliances but also betray your companions. A game is played over 4 turns. Each turn represents one hour of time before reinforcements arrive. These turns are played out similarly: zombies arrive, players move one of their characters and then each location is resolved (power and attack). At the end of the 4 turns of play, the player with the most victory points (characters, food and antidote) wins the game. But be careful: to get into the helicopter, the players will have to make sure each of their living characters has been vaccinated. The box contains: 7 site tiles; 3 road tiles and a water tower area; 1 water tower; 21 character cards; 21 character tokens; 1 woman with baby character token; 40 zombie tokens; 30 colored bases; 36 movement cards; 40 action cards; 20 invasion cards; 6 explosion markers; 1 starting player marker; 12 food tokens; 16 antidotes; 1 zombie leader marker; 3 caches to be used when parties to less than 6 players; and 6 markers to indicate the color of the player.
