Salem: A Card Game of Deception – Limited Offer

Salem: A Card Game of Deception
Accuse and defend your fellow townsfolk as you hunt down the witches of Salem. Act fast, before conspiracy turns you against your own.The year is 1692, and it is a perilous time to live in the town of Salem, Massachusetts. One wrong step, or one misplaced accusation, and you could be the next witch to hang. “Salem” takes players into this perilous world and lets them re-live the tension, politics, and religious extremism that still has people talking about it 300 years later.
The game is packaged in a faux book box that closes magnetically. The game, disguised as a worn out leather book, can easily hide on your bookshelf and masquerade as an antique.Players can play as prominent villagers from the old Salem town, and even read their bios in the instruction manual. The servant girl Mary Warren, pastor Samuel Parris, farmer John Proctor, storyteller Tituba, and beggar Sarah Good are some of the 12 characters featured in the game. Players, each acting as one of these unique characters, are given 3-5 Tryal cards (depending on the number of players). These Tryal cards reveal the true identity of each player, “Witch” or “Not a Witch.”
During gameplay, players gather cards that they use to accuse, or defend, other players. Deciding who to trust is key to survival, since you can never play a card on yourself. When you suspect someone to be a witch, you can begin accusing them with red accusation cards. When enough accusations have been placed on one of the players, the player who lays the final accusation chooses one of that player’s Tryal cards to reveal. Once all “Witch” Tryal cards have been found, the villagers of Salem win. Players can also use green and blue cards such as “Alibi”, “Stocks”, “Matchmaker”, “Asylum”, and “Scapegoat” to help or hurt their allies or enemies.

    a very very good game for casual environments. My non-boardgaming freinds picked up the rules and objective within one game round, it’s compact enough to transport in nearly any situation, the box is very neat and would actually blend in on a book shelf…The game itself can sit 13? players and is a good balance of luck and ability.

    Great fun,

    Took few games to get used to multiple rules. Being a witch is less stressful than mafia, but the gameplay is more complicated.
    Maybe they should include more save and kill tokens. We lost the save token on the first day and had to scribble on a blank one.

    Great travel sized game, however very hard to understand the rules. I recommend learning form youtube videos, which is what I did and it seems to work fine now.
