Board Games at Odum: Werewords

A guide to help you navigate Odum Library's board game collection and the world of gaming.



In Werewords, players guess a secret word by asking "yes" or "no" questions. Figure out the Magic Word before time is up, and you win! However, one of the players is secretly a Werewolf who is not only working against you, but also knows the Magic Word. If you don't guess the Word in time, you can still win by identifying the Werewolf! To help you out, one player is the Seer, who knows the Word, but has to be careful when helping you figure it out; if the Word is guessed, the Werewolf can still pull out a win by identifying the Seer! A free iOS/Android app provides thousands of words in hundreds of categories at various difficulty levels, so everyone can play.
