About

Overview:

For anyone who ever said to a horror movie: Don’t go in there! What were you thinking?!? Now you can live those, oftentimes poor, choices. While taking a vacation in SlaughterVille, a Great Evil awakens to ruin the day of these vacationers. SlaughterVille will take Players on a thrilling adventure through the fictional town that just happens to be host to numerous supernatural and horrific events. Despite these violent and often deadly adventures, SlaughterVille remains a popular vacation spot for people hoping to have a good time. There are always Cabins available at the Lake or feel free to take a room at the Asylum!

  Playing as one of the typical horror movie stereotypes, the Player will interact with one of the main locations in SlaughterVille all in an effort to find the Clues necessary to stop the Villain from winning and ruining their vacation. Players will travel through the different locations of the town. As they encounter each space, they will draw a card and react to the events on the card. Will they get a much needed Item, react to an Event, or face a dangerous Enemy? Ultimately, through this interaction, they will gather the materials and Clues necessary to finally defeat the Villain!

The Villain is not just a passive actor in this play of death and destruction! The Players will choose one of the Villains to combat. Every turn the Villain will make life difficult for the Players. Each Villain will come with a unique set of win conditions for the Villain and the Players. Don't fool yourself into thinking this will be an easy and straightforward path towards victory! With over 400 cards, 5 unique and varied Villains, 9 different Player cards, and 9 haunting and helpful locations, SlaughterVille has variety enough to keep even the most dedicated citizen busy! How will your story play out?  SlaughterVille is a cooperative game of exploration and atmosphere for 2-5 Players.

Components (Prototype images shown):

 The Player Mat: This is located on the back of each Location card. It is used as the Player Starting Area and is a place of rest for the Players. Players may also have to return items or victims/allies here depending upon the Villain chosen.

Villain Mats: Villain Mats are what drive the game. They contain win conditions, setup rules, Villain abilities, and any special rules for the game. There are currently 5 different Villains each with a different method of winning and losing. Below is just one of the 5 with more to be revealed!

Villain Cards: In addition to the Villain Mat, each Villain comes with a deck of 24 cards that represents not only the personality of the Villain, but also doubles as the Villain's life points. In most cases, once the Villain deck has been depleted, the Villain has lost. Villain cards will have the keyword Villain on the card. The back of the Villain deck will have an image matching the Villain Mat. For example, the card back for the Ancient Burial Ground deck will be the same image as what is on the Villain Mat.

Player Cards: There are currently 8 different Player cards for the Player to choose from. They represent the different archetypes found in horror movies. These cards are used to perform checks and combat in the world of SlaughterVille. Each Player has their own stats and an ability that can be triggered by spending a clue token. Below is one of the Player Cards with more to be revealed!

Location Cards: This is the primary method in which the Players will interact with SlaughterVille. Currently there are 9 Locations: Antique Store, Asylum, Cabins, Cemetery, Church, Farm, Forest, General Store, and Residential Neighborhood. Six of these locations will be chosen each game and will be used to explore, gather clues, gain items, and defeat enemies. Each location has its own 24 card deck for the Player to experience or the Villain to decimate! Below are just some of the cards in these decks.

Other Pieces: Also included are dice, 1 black pawn to represent the Villain, 5 different colored pawns for the Players, a First Player token, and a Tracking token for use on the Player Starting Area.

Here is a preview of one possible setup for a 5-player game:

The beauty is that the game setup can change from one game to the next. Different villains and locations can change the way that the game is experienced. In addition, this use of modular villains and locations allows for the easy inclusion of the expansions or, as seen below, stretch goal additions! Simply add the new villains, player cards, or locations into the rotation to have more variety and an ever changing experience.
