Where and when should I play the game?
Any place there’s space to run freely—and safely—is a great place to play any of our games. Back yards, parks, gyms, community centers—any of these are potential battlefields. For maximum glow fun and for full werewolf power, our games are best played in the evening. We suggest aiming for twilight and not running too late for best visibility while running, or playing in an area with lights nearby.

How many players can play the games? I know it says 10+. What does that even mean?
For Wizards & Werewolves, the traditional setup of the game play allows for up to ten players—but if you’re a big group, don’t let that discourage you! While the wizards only have five magic glow markers, you can add as many werewolves to the pack as you wish. Also, multiple game sets can be combined for a larger team of wizards. For our other games, gameplay is for two to ten players, but we also include specialized game rules and instructions for smaller groups and larger groups, even up to 20 players.

What’s this about batteries? How long will they last? Are they going to be a pain to replace?
Yeah – we know that’s USUALLY the downside of light-up fun. But since we know ourselves the frustration finding expensive battery replacements, we’ve done our best to make it super simple and inexpensive. Batteries are included with each game set. The batteries we use are 12 CR1220 batteries which last about a DOZEN game sessions. That’s three months of glorious light up fun (any more often than that and you’ll be an Olympic athlete). When those run out, we have replacement battery kits sent to you for $5. Easy pop-in, the battle starts again.

What if one of the game pieces breaks?
If anything isn’t functional when you open the box, we will hunt down the werewolf saboteur and replace the broken parts free of charge (don’t forget to put in the batteries before writing us though). If your battle is especially dastardly and one of the pieces breaks, we can ship replacements to you at cost. Give us an email or call for which ones you’re trying to replace.

What is this about “biting”?
A tag is a werewolf “bite”. No actual biting involved, please!

Can I get the game in different colors?
We currently offer red as the only options because the wizards we consulted would otherwise be offended. We may offer different color expansion packs in the future. For our other game, Capture the Flag REDUX, we do offer expansion sets with several other color options.

What if I order the game(s) but don’t like it?
Whether you change your mind the first time you play or two months later, we guarantee a FULL REFUND of any game you’re not satisfied with. Just let us know, and consider giving us some feedback about what we can do better.

    This game is great! I had my 3 teens and their adult sister and her son playing this game. Everything came as described and all items worked. The instructions are easy to follow and understand. The kids played for quite a while. It is fun to see them outside away from the electronics and this game kept them interested. One of their favorite games to play after dark is “goast in the graveyard”… Wizards and Werewolves has taken that over. The kids had a blast trying to out run the werewolf(s) and find the healing stone. What a fun game!

    We had so much fun playing this game! We wanted to meet some new friends and put together a group through Meetup for people interested in being active and looking for something to do after work. Even though we were mostly strangers, we all bonded pretty quickly through playing this game. We met up at a forested park and started off with the first level of play. It was actually really dark and a bit misty so wandering around looking for the cool glowing lights and trying to avoid the werewolf was genuinely thrilling. Each time you hear another of your wizard friends howl in the night as they got captured, the excitement and adrenaline really amped up! It truly felt like we were immersed in a fantasy world!

    The different game varieties made each round unique and fun in different ways and kept everyone entertained for hours. Highly recommended for groups of friends and family looking to have some new experiences and fun that doesn’t involve a screen 🙂

    This is such a fun game to play if you’re looking to combine physical exercise and imagination. It has just the right mix of creative elements with the wizard and werewolf abilities (each player has a specific role and they feel important) without being too technical. There are three main game modes with varying complexity to not get bored playing repeatedly.

    If you like the idea of outdoor group play, with some fantasy themes, and running around with your friends then I can’t recommend this enough!

    I bought this to play with my nieces and nephews. While I was really uncertain how they would like it (and myself and family, frankly), we had so much fun! My younger niece and nephew wanted to jump right into playing the third level with all of the wizard powers, but I think we made the right choice by starting a little easier. it made the more advanced rules easier to grasp. this was a cool game and was impressed with the quality of it all around. currently holding off on buying capture the flag redux, but a three-way game sounds intriguing…

    Wizards and Werewolves is truly magical! This night game has not only brought our family together to be more active, but it has also sparked an interest in friends and neighborhood kids to get out of the house as well! We adults love playing, our teenagers and their friends get into it, as well as our younger kids. It is truly for everyone which makes it so great! This summer we have had countless night’s of running around in the dark howling and being as speedy, yet stealthy as possible. Each time we play it’s like a new game because it is so versatile and rules are so adaptable. We are trying to figure out how to keep the fun going inside now that it’s getting cooler outside.

    Also, being owners of multiple Starlux games, we can vouch that these wristbands stay together better than previous ones from other games of theirs; although still a little difficult to get on.

    I would definitely recommend this game and have had many neighborhood moms ask about it. Great memories are being made with this one!

    This game is going to be so much fun! All the pieces look well made and it’s simple to understand. I think this would be perfect for families who go camping or when you have get togethers!

    This game is a lot of fun. It really adds a new dimension to an outdoor game.
