What is A Heist Gone Wrong?Edit

A Heist Gone Wrong is an online Social Deduction game based on the board game One Night Ultimate Werewolf. A game of Heist can hold anywhere from 4 to 9 players, and the players each receive their roles with various actions. The game is split among three factions: the Innocents, the Robbers, and the Neutrals. Innocents must find Robbers to win, Robbers must avoid capture, and Neutrals have their own objectives. What makes this game special is that you do not know if your role card was replaced with a different card, and must use the chat and game sense to figure out what you really are. Innocents could become Robbers and vice versa, and their winning conditions change without them realizing it. Like other Social Deduction games, A Heist Gone Wrong is heavily chat based, but this game encourages strategy-based tactics and demands the player to have good game sense. Certain strategies that would be considered gamethrowing in other Social Deduction games are typical in this one.
