The Role of Judgment in Software Estimation
6:00 PM, Seymour Room

See webpage devoted to this event
Werewolf (how ruthless are your colleagues?)
9:00 PM, Meet in front of Salon A

Werewolf is a fun game modeling a battle between an informed minority and an uninformed majority. Players are secretly assigned roles: either "werewolf", who know each other; or "townspeople", who know only the number of werewolves amongst them. During the night phase of the game, the werewolves choose a townsperson to kill. During the day phase, all players debate the identities of the werewolf and vote to kill someone whom the majority suspect. Players are eliminated until either all werewolves are killed or the werewolves outnumber the townspeople.
