Werewolf in the Dark! is the unforgettable game that combines the classical game of Werewolf with hide-and-go-seek. Designed by Alan Gerding (Two Rooms and a Boom) and Andy Patton (Dead Last), published by Tuesday Knight Games (Two Rooms and a Boom, Mothership RPG, That's Not Lemonade).

CabinCon 2024


For only $30 you get:

  • The social deduction of Werewolf
    • Who among the villagers is the Werewolf?
    • During the daylight phase, you have only one minute to discuss and vote to eliminate a player you suspect of killing others at night. 

  • The childhood intensity of Hide-and-go-Seek
    • During the night phase, everyone hides in pitch black darkness.
    • The Werewolves can double tap you, eliminating you.

  • A never-ending night only the dead can cure!
    • Don't get too cozy in your hiding spot, as a Werewolf can win in a single night.
    • Venture out in the dark and hope to find a body to end the terrifying night phase.

  • Dozens of roles with unique abilities
    • Many different monster types.
    • Many different "villager" roles.
    • A third "Villain" faction spices up the game, stealing the victory from villagers if all monsters are eliminated.

  • Everyone plays!
    • There is no need for a moderator!
    • Showed up late or not sure you want to play? No worries. Simply take on the role of a "ghost" until it's your time to play.

  • Elimination is only the beginning!
    • Eaten by a monster? Eliminated by vote? No worries.
    • Everyone comes back as one of many different types of "ghosts" to enhance the game.
    • Every ghost also has their own ability.

The three factions are monster, villager, and villain.

Werewolf in the Dark! comes in two possible boxes, each just $30. Think of it as choosing between Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue. Both are stand alone games, totally playable on their own... but you can combine both boxes to own all characters and ghost tokens for maximum play variety and the ability to play with up to 56 players!

  • The Wolf Pack 
    • This box contains all of the titular Werewolf monsters and a curated selection of villagers, villains, and ghosts... all balanced and designed to provide everyone with maximum fun without much complexity.
    • Comes with 28 unique characters. Full list of characters in FAQ.
      • 5 monsters, most of which are part of the werewolf family.
      • 19 villagers, each with their own ability.
      • 4 villainous villains.
    • Comes with 15 unique ghost tokens. Full list of ghost in FAQ.
    • Full color rulebook.
    • Full color character guidebook covering all 28 Wolf Pack characters.



  • The Monster Box
    • You won't find any Werewolves in this box. Instead, you'll find a dynamic and balanced mix of your favorite classic monsters and other wild recognizable characters. This macabre collection has arguably more nuance and depth than its Wolf Pack counterpart.
    • Comes with 28 unique characters. Full list of characters in FAQ.
      • 6 monsters, none of which include any werewolves.
      • 18 villagers, each with their own ability.

We understand it is always a risk using crowd-funding as there is no guarantee you'll end up with the actual game in your hand. Tuesday Knight Games has a history of publishing great games through crowdfunding. Yes, two of our previous games were delayed and arrived later than originally projected, but Werewolf in the Dark is in it's final stages of preparation for manufacturing. This means we are doing our sincerest so you get Werewolf in the Dark in your hands by the end of this year!

The Art of Werewolf in the Dark
Tuesday Knight Games is dedicated to delivering handmade art for each of our games. For Werewolf in the Dark we hired Bradly Blaire to bring his woodcutting talents to hand carve each and every character card out of wood. This meticulous process produces a woodcut print to stamp ink onto paper. From there, the ink print is scanned into a digital file.

Bradley Blaire's work on our official Werewolf Woodprint.

You can get own one of the random 55 woodprints Bradley's painstakingly carved by backing at the $500 pledge level. Own a piece of art by backing today!
