As in previous puzzles, you need to sort the following 16 words into 4 groups of 4 words; each group will have something in common, and all the common things relate to a tag.

I've tried to make it harder to distinguish the possibilities, but there's still a tag that relates to everything.

          ten     investigator     joker         spy

          pets      seasons        thief        witch

         mayor      militia        jack       nightlife

         doctor      queen       vampires     werewolves

Playing cards: ten, joker, queen, jack (found by Omega Krypton)
The Sims expansions: Pets, Seasons, Nightlife, Vampires
Roles in Mafia: werewolves, investigator, doctor, mayor
Cards in Dominion: spy, militia, thief, witch

So the missing tag is
