Contagion in the Palace
"And to show I bear no ill will, I, too, shall bestow a gift on the child. Listen well, all of you! The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But… before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel... and die."
is a variant of Assassin in the Palace which operates on a similar conceit: you have one king, one assassin, and a bunch of guards who are aware of the king's identity. After day one, however, the set-up changes slightly with the infection mechanic. Whoever is voted on day one by the majority to be lynched reveals their alignment and spreads their infection to another player. This continues until the assassin is infected, and their goal is to spread infection to the king. (This makes it pretty quick, since you only really need majority for one dayphase!)
