Great fun for a group of friends
Ranging from 7 to 15 players, Town of Salem offers a well-paced, interactive game, in which artifice, wit and teamwork counts most. You personate in one of 33 different roles, becoming from now on a Town or Mafia member, a Serial Killer, an Arsonist or a Neutral. Of course each group (and each character as well) has its own unique role to play, almost always standing in opposition to the rest of the protagonists. Reveal your secret powers or abilities, discover your predestination, as maybe you are the one who can talk with the dead or impersonate other players. There is also a chance that you will be the serial killer, doing his job under cover of the night, taking every effort not to get caught. Of course the whole gaud bases on the fact that none of the players know who is the good and the bad guy.
Simple, yet engaging gameplay
Town of Salem features eight different game modes, therefore offering a long-lasting entertainment while exploring new ways of conducting the game. These are: Classic Mode (the most popular), Ranked Practice, Ranked, Custom Mode, Rapid Mode, All Any, Rainbow Mode and last, but not least: Vigilantics. The basic goals, however, remain the same: not to get killed and help your faction win the game. You will use your distinctive abilities during the night and accuse other players during the day. If you are smart enough to mislead your opponents, your chances for survival will be bigger. Otherwise, you risk getting accused during the day, which leads to an unavoidable trial and death sentence at night.
