What is Secret Hitler about?

If you are looking for a new and exciting game to play with friends. Secret Hitler may be a good choice. The  game is not as controversial or serious as its name may suggest. In fact, it’s pretty enjoyable and engaging.


Secret Hitler is a social deduction game set in pre-World War II Germany. Players are divided into two teams – Liberals and Fascists – with one player secretly chosen to be Hitler. Each team has its own objectives.

Secret roles and identities

At the start, each player is secretly assigned to one of the two teams and given a role as a Liberal, Fascist, or Hitler. The Fascists know each other’s identities, but the Liberals do not.

Electing President and Chancellor

In each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor by voting. These roles rotate among players as the game progresses.

Legislative Session

Once a government is elected, the President draws three policy cards (which can be Liberal or Fascist policies) and discards one. The Chancellor then chooses between the remaining two to enact.

Enacting a policy

The policy enacted by the Chancellor reveals nothing about their loyalty, as they might be forced to enact a policy against their team due to the available choices.

Special Powers

As Fascist policies are passed, the President gains special powers, like investigating a player’s loyalty, choosing the next presidential candidate, or even assassinating a player.

Winning the Game:

Liberals win by either passing five Liberal policies or successfully assassinating Hitler.

Fascists win by passing six Fascist policies or if Hitler is elected Chancellor after three Fascist policies have been enacted.

Game Mechanics

The game mechanics of Secret Hitler are straightforward to understand. The game has high replayability. Each round is different, and the roles assigned to players are random, keeping the game fresh and exciting every time you play.

The game can accommodate 5-10 players, making it perfect for small or large gatherings. It also has an average playing time of 45 minutes, which is just enough to keep everyone engaged without feeling too long.

Who Might Like This Game?

If you enjoy games that involve strategy, deduction, and teamwork, then Secret Hitler is definitely a game you should try. 

The game’s theme and setting add a unique twist to the gameplay, making it more immersive and thought-provoking. 

What Makes It Fun?

Aside from the intense gameplay, Secret Hitler is a fun and hilarious game to play with friends. As players try to deceive each other and figure out who’s on their team, there are bound to be some memorable moments and inside jokes.

The game also encourages players to use their imagination and come up with creative strategies, adding an element of creativity to the mix.
