It seemed like a good idea at the time: a week-long vacation at famed Ludwig Castle. You and your friends laughed off the ridiculous rumors about it being a haven for werewolves. But now, deep in the maze of rooms that comprise the castle, you realize that the rumors seem to have some validity; you’re not sure whom to trust. One Week Ultimate Werewolf takes the gameplay of One Night Ultimate Werewolf and twists it up in a knot, with ever-increasing tension as you venture into the special rooms of Ludwig Castle. Each room provides a special power, and those powers are the key to figuring out the mystery of who among you is a werewolf.

Machi Koro returns with an all new 5th Anniversary Edition, containing molded custom 3D coins, reworked card text for ease of play and an all new rulebook with clearer text and examples!

The ship features new treasures to collect and introduces new action cards with more of a take-that feel. On the ship, you’ll face two new threats. The crow’s nest collect marbles until it suddenly tips over, spilling them all over the deck of the ship while the jolly roger in the bow launches a single marble toward anyone foolish enough to take the captain’s wheel.
