Mafia a.k.a. Werewolves

Gather in a large group of people. One person, preferably who knows the game, is in charge. Everybody closes their eyes and if s/he selects you, you are part of the mafia. Normally they choose three, but it can change with the number of players. The other people are the citizens. The leader will say that night falls, and the mafia can choose to kill any person that is a citizen. However, the leader also assigns a detective, doctor and barman when he assigns the mafia (if you wish) and so they stay secret.. The detective who can learn the team of a player, but he can also ask every night. The doctor can protect a person every night, so they can’t die. Lastly, the barman can cancel the effect of a person. So they can save a person, or stop a person being protected. But they must choose the right person. The game ends when the mafia are dead or the outnumber the civilians. 

Lastly, we advise taking a deck of cards with you. Everybody knows a good few card games, and you can also make one up or vary them to fit you!
