The Dictator is a risky role that can change the course of a game. It brings an interesting balancing act.


His objective is to defeat the Werewolves. He can take over the voting power of the village once in the game. If he executes a Werewolf, he becomes Mayor, otherwise he dies.
After deciding to take revolution, the Dictator takes the vote at dawn.
If he has targeted a Wolf and a Mayor is already elected, he becomes Mayor, if he has targeted a Villager, he dies.
The Talkative Wolf does not need to place his word during the day if the Dictator takes power.


Don't take too long

You must anticipate when you will want to use his power. If you wait too long, you run the risk of dying each night without the opportunity to use your power.

It is still better to have a minimum of information about the game. If the chances of finding a werewolf are not on your side, you should not risk losing two elements to the village.

Who to choose?

Pay attention to the players' messages.
Maybe someone will have information to give you, a Seer who wants to give you a crucial information for example.

Don't be too hasty and beware of traps set by the Werewolves to make you eliminate an innocent person.

Infected Dictator

In this configuration, your power does not change. If your power was activated during the night, the only way to stay alive is to kill a Werewolf or do nothing.
But doing nothing after a Black Wolf infection is a very suspicious act. It must be a well thought out and reasoned action, for example to give the Werewolves an extra night to outnumber you.
