I think the most interesting situations were forced action. Like the alien chat. Anything where people are forced, as rules of the game, to take an action that might be out of character. They are forced to explain or at least it gives more evidence. So, if each week, a "traitor" folk was forced to publicly accuse someone or not post at all or respond to an anon "traitor" post.
The other part I liked was all the alliances and hidden info. It would be interesting to give info which would force alliances. Like you could let two people know, and only those two, that neither is the alien. Or let two people know they both correctly identified a human in the last vote. Assuming that's somewhat hidden emails, people might post known alliances or fake ones, and in general breed distrust. This work better for more then 2 larger groups, like if there are 2 aliens in the last game.

There is a great card game called Resistance that is werewolf like. There is an variant which is Camelot called Avalon. Here are some of the varients' powers which are interesting. Theses are usually grouped in pairs such as Merlin/Assassin, Percival/Morgana
-Merlin (good) Gets to know who the evil people are -Assassin (evil) at end of game gets to guess who merlin is and if right evil wins even if they lost. -Percival (good) gets to find out who Merlin is to help protect his identity [makes good side a lot better] -Mordred (evil) does not reveal himself to Merlin [makes evil side better] -Oberon (evil) does not reveal himself to the other evil players, nor does he know who the other bad guys are [makes good side better because evil side does not have perfect information] -Morgana (evil) When Percival opens his eyes to see who Merlin is, both Morgana and Merlin reveal themselves as Merlin so Percival does not know who Merlin is for sure [makes evil side better]
In addition to these roles there is an optional "Lady of the Lake" tile that lets a player look at someones character card, then pass the Lady of the Lake to that player (happens at the end of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds). Also, there are 2 promos which are awesome, especially Lancelot which flips 2 players allegiances.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Mike Lenin: OMG, dude, you are totally a villain and are caught!

Buzzfly: You must be really bored
May 11, 2020 20:23:50 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Mike Lenin: boring people get bored
May 11, 2020 20:24:02 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: and definitely not sober
May 11, 2020 20:24:10 GMT -8
Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too
May 11, 2020 20:24:41 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you
May 11, 2020 20:28:03 GMT -8
Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
