OSCON 2006, Day 1: Werewolf

[ #30416 ]
I opted to have a late dinner with some friends instead of joining some fellow convention-goers in a rousing game of Werewolf. That's too bad, too. I arrived at the game too late to play, but it looked like a lot of fun.

I don't know how well the game scales to a large group of people, but I find it entertaining to see how quickly a group of otherwise highly intelligent computer programmers can resort to mob rule. The game almost encourages such behavior. The roles of werewolf and villager are assigned at random, so such superfluous qualities as appearance and position in the room are irrelevant to the investigation as it were. Still, that didn't stop peopel from guessing wildly or simply choosing someone because they "looked like a werewolf."
