Accuse and defend your fellow townsfolk as you hunt down the witches of Salem. Act fast, before conspiracy turns you against your own. Play as john proctor, Mary warren, Tituba, and others. Salem is a strategic card game of deception built for 4-12 players, and is most suited for players aged 12-93. Estimated game time is 20-35 minutes. Game comes in antique-looking fake book box that can easily hide on your bookshelf. Successfully funded with $100k on Kickstarter in April 2015. Game contents: 1 faux book container 114 cards (15 town hall, 39 trial, 60 playing) 1 hourglass 1 manual (includes character biographies) 14 circle tokens players are given 3-5 trial cards which reveal the true identity of each player, "witch" or "not a witch." players then gather cards that they use to accuse or defend other players and to reveal their trial cards. Deciding who to trust is key to survival, since you can never play a card on yourself. Players can also use cards such as "stocks", "matchmaker", and "asylum" to hurt their enemies or help their allies. One card, "night", forces all players to close their eyes while the witches choose someone to eliminate. The other black card, "conspiracy," forces all players to inherit a trial card from another player. Killing witches quickly is essential, otherwise "conspiracy" may soon have the whole town turned evil. Before long, accusations will be flying, and screams of "she's a witch " will wake the neighbors. Will you be the hero who purges your town of witches, or will you be wrongly accused and hung for witchcraft? Or perhaps you will be a witch yourself, escape conviction, and bring Salem to the ground.
