Summary: “Woodlings is a cultish, animal-infested game of murder, bluffing and elder-beings in the classic Mafia format. Each player controls two Woodlings, little forest creatures each with their own abilities and attributes that they can use to their advantage. The game revolves around Ancients, powerful, age-old woodland spirits that require specific sacrifices from their followers in order to stay sated. At the start of the game, one Woodling will be anonymously designated the Killer, whose goal is to sacrifice two other Woodlings to an Ancient (of their choosing) without being caught. Every other Innocent Woodling must in turn use their own abilities and deduction skills to collectively pinpoint the Killer before they accomplish their goal.”
