This game is ideal after telling or reading an exciting story. Before the game can start the participants must form a circle, however, their backs are facing the middle of the circle. The team leader walks around inside the circle and at one stage taps someone on the shoulder. This kid is the werewolf. Now the participants are allowed to turn around, and the game leader says: "It will be dark, and the people go to sleep." Participants must close their eyes while the group leader continues to speak: "A werewolf awakens and kills a citizen of the city." Now the werewolf awakens and silently points at another child. The game leader continues, "It is morning, and the people wake up. However, one is dead." He points to the child the werewolf pointed out earlier. Every child can guess and begin a discussion of who might be the werewolf. When that is done, every child says his vote. The child receiving the most votes will be killed/eliminated from the game. If it was really the Werewolf, the game starts all over again. Otherwise, the game continues.
