Werewolf is a card game that has slowly infiltrated the journalism and ONA community. This will be a talk that will, in a humorous fashion, teach people the history of the game., techniques on honing game play skills, and reveal why there’s actually deep journalistic lessons within the game itself.

This session is designed for:

  • People who wonder why journalists love to play Werewolf at conferences
  • Those interested in how interactive games can build community
