Name:

Secret Hitler Game


A friend told me about it yesterday. Said she played it about a month ago and said it was a lot of fun. Chat Icon
I'm invited to a party tomorrow and was told it would be played. Yesterday was my first time hearing about it and felt the name alone is pretty offensive and I have no plans on playing it.

Anyone else hear of this game? Just wondering what your thoughts are on it and if Im just being a dud!

ETA: Secret Hitler is a dramatic game of political intrigue and betrayal set in 1930s Germany. Each player is randomly and secretly assigned to be a liberal or a fascist, and one player is Secret Hitler. The fascists coordinate to sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader; the liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it's too late. The liberal team always has a majority.

At the beginning of the game, players close their eyes, and the fascists reveal themselves to one another. Secret Hitler keeps his eyes closed, but puts his thumb up so the fascists can see who he is. The fascists learn who Hitler is, but Hitler doesn't know who his fellow fascists are, and the liberals don't know who anyone is.

Each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor who will work together to enact a law from a random deck. If the government passes a fascist law, players must try to figure out if they were betrayed or simply unlucky. Secret Hitler also features government powers that come into play as fascism advances. The fascists will use those powers to create chaos unless liberals can pull the nation back from the brink of war.

The objective of the liberal team is to pass five liberal policies or assassinate Secret Hitler. The objective of the fascist team is to pass six fascist policies or elect Secret Hitler chancellor after three fascist policies have passed.

Re: Secret Hitler Game

Never heard of it. But putting aside the offensiveness of Hitler, it sounds like a real bore. I'd rather play Cards against Humanity.

Re: Secret Hitler Game

I was going to say the same thing. Ignoring the offensive and inappropriate nature of the game, this sounds so boring. Not my type of party. Chat Icon

Sounds just like Mafia - it’s basically a murder mystery without using Hitler.

I would be uncomfortable with the name and the premise. Hitler caused a genocide and I find it inappropriate.

Re: Secret Hitler Game

I have heard of it. Play mafia or one night ultimate wear wolf instead. We play those with our kids. It is not an adult game.

My students loved to play this game in their free time, I thought the name was too much and would prefer something like werewolf or i’ve seen people do “bad unicorn” for kids.

As a Catholic person I would never play a game called Secret Hitler. This whole "party" sounds awful in so many ways.

This is completely offensive to me and I would never play anything that makes a game out of mass murder.

Re: Secret Hitler Game

i'm not easily offended and the name sounds absolutely offensive. the game description sounds horribly boring for a party.

the only place i can see the game (without the name) being appropriate would be in a world history class or a political science class.

you are no dud, my dear.
