Werewords – 011

 

 

Werewords: an English game of asking questions and social deduction!

Episode Overview

In this episode of “Board Gaming with English” Dustin and Rich talk about the tabletop game called “Werewords” by Ted Alspach. This game is another social deduction game that mixes Werewolf from Episode 1 and the classic question-guessing game called 20 Questions. This is a great English game for asking questions and learning some vocabulary words from others playing the game. If you are on the village team, you need to guess the words, if you are on the werewolf team, you need to be sure no one guesses the word.
