New Game Design Contest at The Game Crafter! We’re looking for the next great social deduction game. In a social deduction game, players are assigned hidden roles, after which everyone works to sleuth out the “bad guy” (ie the person or people not on your side). Examples are:

- Mafia/Werewolf
- The Resistance
- Spyfall
- Battlestar Galactica
- and even murder mystery parties!

It can also include games with only the chance of a traitor element such as:

- Shadows Over Camelot
- Dead of Winter
