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.

Who is this game for?
The game includes three different levels of gameplay for ages 8-65+. They range from very simple, which is great for younger players, to highly strategic, where each Wizard has its own unique power. That said, people love it that all ages can play together.
Where should I play the game?
You can play anywhere with space to run safely: backyards, parks, even basements or garages.
Does it have to be dark to play?
You can play at any time. For maximum glow fun and full werewolf power, however, we do recommend playing in low light: such as inside with the lights off or twilight.
How long do the batteries last?
The batteries included in each of the game pieces are designed to last 10-12 hours and are type CR1220. To replenish them, you can use the Capture the Flag REDUX Battery set. It includes enough batteries to replace all the lights twice and costs $5.
