Assassin

Good for a group of say 15 people (you can scale up or down as necessary).

Get everyone in a circle. You hand out bits of paper with 1 story teller, 3 assassins, 3 police men/women, 2 doctors and the rest civilians. Everyone chooses a piece and that becomes their identity.

The story teller tells everyone to sleep - and you all shut your eyes and put your heads down. He then asks the assassins to wake up, and choose a person to 'kill' by pointing at that person. Everyone returns to sleep.

Then the doctors go and choose someone who they guess to be the victim, who they point at. Everyone returns to sleep.
Finally the police try to identify one of the assassins, who they point at.

Everyone wakes up and only the story teller and assassins know who victim is. If that person is unsuccessfully identified by the doctors, they no longer participate in the game. If doctors have guessed correctly, they stay 'alive'. If the police correctly identify an assassin, then that assassin is out.

Then everyone discusses and tries to identify an assassin collectively. This is the fun part where assassins try to shift the blame - it gets really heated sometimes! A vote is taken and the majority vote wins, that person then reveals their identity and is out of the game.

Play continues until all assassins are identified or only 2 people are remaining, at least one of whom is an assassin.

This game is absolutely awesome - but the narrator/story teller really has to know what he's doing to be able to make the game run smoothly

this is like mafia, bu the best thing to do if you are the murderer is to shift the blame onto the other murderers so you have sole power over who dies and no 1 suspects you
