Game Time for Hitler

Have you ever played "Secret Hitler"?


Neither have I. And given the following info, I doubt I ever will:
Secret Hitler is a social deduction game for 5–10 people about finding and stopping the Secret Hitler. 
The majority of players are liberals. If they can learn to trust each other, they have enough votes to control the table and win the game. But some players are fascists. They will say whatever it takes to get elected, enact their agenda, and blame others for the fallout. The liberals must work together to discover the truth before the fascists install their cold-blooded leader and win the game.
Of course, as Melanie Phillips points out, leftists can be fascists too (hat tip: MW). That said, there's a snowball's chance in Hades of there ever being a game called "Secret Stalin" or "Secret Mao."
