Ferret Out is a social deduction party game where players try to uncover the lone weasel mingling among ferrets. The unique feature of the game is that no one knows who they are - Not even the lone weasel.
Everyone has a card with a hidden word. All players have the exact same word except one player (the weasel). To Ferret Out the weasel, every player provides a clue to their word. The goal is to read all the clues, and determine which player gave a clue that does not match the others (the weasel).
Players earn points for correctly identifying the weasel. BUT weasels are clever critters, so all players must be careful when providing clues to their hidden word. Because if the weasel can deduce the ferrets’ hidden word (by connecting the clues) the weasel will earn bonus points.
