Werewolf | 10:30 PM

Werewolf has become part of ODTUG Kscope's annual networking fun and connecting. This year, we'll be hosting three nights of Werewolf. If you've never played this interactive party game of deduction (and deceit), it's easy to learn and the best way to catch on is to show up and play! Many attendees agree playing Werewolf (even in lieu of sleep) is the most fun they have at ODTUG Kscope, so make sure you arrive at 10:30 PM Sunday night for the first game. All you need to bring is yourself! We're having special guest moderators each night, and Sunday’s session will be run by Edward Roske. Join us whether you're looking for fun, for connections, for a break, or for no discernible reason. Just make sure you join us.
