Description Edit | History

Deduction games are those that require players to form conclusions based on available premises. These games are quite varied, including several different types of logical reasoning. Cat & Mouse games like Scotland Yard are a type of Deduction game in which players use a set of observations and truthful feedback to narrow down possibilities and catch a constantly moving opponent at the right position. Elimination games like Clue expect players to arrive at the right conclusion after narrowing down possibilities from a large list. Signalling games like Werewolf allow for a set of observations and player-driven feedback (which may not be truthful) to arrive at the right conclusion out of 2-3 main choices. Finally, this Category includes Induction games like Zendo, in which players must derive a general rule out of near infinite possibilities.

Social deduction games are a related sub-category that is proving increasingly popular, and includes games with hidden roles and bluffing such as The Resistance and One Night Werewolf. For an overview, see the article Social Deduction Games: How Many Different Ways Can I Tell You That I Am Not A Werewolf? and also Social Deduction Games: Choosing an Appropriate One.
