Secret Hitler is a political intrigue version of party games like Mafia and Werewolf. Set in 1930s Germany, 5-10 players take on hidden identities for one of two teams: the liberals and fascists. The liberals attempt to stop the fascists from enacting fascist laws, and ultimately electing their “Secret Hitler” as Chancellor.
Each round, players must elect a President and a Chancellor, who work together to enact a law from a random deck. If a fascist law is enacted, players must figure out if they were unlucky, or betrayed by their secretly fascist leaders. If the liberal team passes five liberal policies, or assassinates the “Secret Hitler,” they win. If the fascist team passes 6 fascist policies first, or manage to elect “Secret Hitler” Chancellor after three fascist polices have passed, they win.
