CUDO Plays Recommends

This week the spooky game, One Night Ultimate Vampire, is recommended by CUDO Plays committee member Jess Chu!

In One Night Ultimate Vampire, the sun has just set, and vampires have descended on your sleepy little town, slowly turning the villagers into even more vampires. Fortunately, the village has several residents with special powers, with most willing to help eliminate this fanged menace!

One Night Ultimate Vampire is a fast game in which everyone gets a role: The nefarious Vampire, the well-meaning Cupid, the sneaky Assassin, or others, each with a special ability. In the course of a single evening, your village will decide who among them is a vampire…because all it takes is finding one vampire to win! A great quick game for 3-10 players that plays in about 10 minutes.

It’s a fun quick deduction game, perfect for a spooky party. Plus it leaves room for playing Betrayal at House on the Hill!
