The Savior of Salem is a simple, easy to learn, multiplayer RPG dungeon crawling card game in the Town of Salem world, similar to Munchkin.
Players draw a starting hand of cards to build up a mob. Cards give bonuses or mess with other players. Each turn you try to fight monsters, that give rewards if defeated. The first player to get 20 mobsters wins.
There are 185 cards total with 90 House Cards, 25 Identity Cards, and 70 Chests Cards.
How to Play
Starting the game with 3 to 6 players, each player draws their starting hand. These cards will allow you to grow your mobs strength, give yourself bonuses, and mess with the other players in the game.
Every turn, a player searches a house. If there is a Monster in that house, the player must fight it. With each Monster you defeat, you rescue towns members who join your Mob. You also get rewards. This can include Equipment for your Mob (like a Garlic Stained Blouses), Identities (like the Vigilante), and Action Cards(like a Bag of Gold).
Sometimes, you will stumble upon a Monster you cannot beat. You can ask the other players for help, in exchange for a reward.
Other players can also make Monsters you could defeat much harder or add more Monsters to the fight.
Some monsters are Legendary such as Pestilence, Horseman of the Apocalypse. These legendary monsters have unique mechanics. If you defeat a Horseman, you get their legendary item. If you cannot, you are cursed.
Players grow their Mob until they have 20 Mob Members. Whoever gets to 20 Mob Members first, wins the game and is the Hero of Salem!
Whether your goal is to backstab, lie, cheat or make friends on your way to victory, Town of Salem – The Savior of Salem makes it all possible.
