Blood on the Clocktower
Blood on the Clocktower is a social deduction game in mode of Werewolf or LoB favourite Avalon; with the added dimension of a Storyteller who guides the experience.
A big hit at LoBsterCon XVIII, when Ben Burns came and hosted games throughout the convention. With the help of Ben & Kristian, LoB has begun to host Blood on the Clocktower games at some of our Events. And they are proving very popular.
To quote the Pandemonium Institute, who created the game and published it through Kickstarter in 2019:
"Blood on the Clocktower is a bluffing game enjoyed by 5 to 20 players on opposing teams of Good and Evil, overseen by a Storyteller player who conducts the action and makes crucial decisions.
During a 'day' phase players socialize openly and whisper privately to trade knowledge or spread lies, culminating in a player's execution if a majority suspects them of being Evil.
Of a 'night' time, players close their eyes and are woken one at a time by the Storyteller to gather information, spread mischief, or kill. Use all your powers of deduction and deception to survive this game of murder and mystery.
The Storyteller uses the game's intricate playing pieces to guide each game, leaving others free to play without a table or board. Players stay in the thick of the action to the very end even if their characters are killed, haunting Ravenswood Bluff as ghosts trying to win from beyond the grave.
The tension and excitement builds for everyone as the bodies of victims pile ever higher..."
We need say no more :)
