About

Think about the most cutthroat games you know, the ones that threaten to tear apart even the oldest and closest of friends. Now add weapons to that game and you are getting a little bit closer to the intensity and thrills of Slay Your Friends.

Are you partial to your friendships? No worries! Instead of duking it out with one another, you and your friends can Slay Your Enemies instead!  

The Slay Your Enemies expansion ships with every copy of the game! This game mode takes what is otherwise a straightforward and quick game and transforms it into an entirely different experience. Instead of a free-for-all, this mode pits one player, known as the raid master, against all the other players who form a party of adventurers with only one thing on their mind "Glory". In this mode you and your friends will face seemingly endless hordes of beasts and collect mythical items along the way to aid you in your future battles. 

Can you and your friends traverse all five raids and come out victorious? 

What We Need & What You Get

Right now, we are turning to you, Kickstarter, for help raising the funds that we need to publish, print, market and distribute the first run of Slay Your Friends. Our funding goal is just $5,000, which will cover all the start-up costs that we are facing as we work to bring Slay Your Friends to life. Every dollar that we raise helps, and to say thanks, we have put together some wicked rewards, including some Kickstarter exclusive add-ons!

About Ghoulish Games LLC

Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the whole team at Ghoulish Games LLC is proud of Slay Your Friends, and we cannot wait to hear about all the fun people have playing it. Tabletop gaming is what we care about, and you can be sure that if it comes from Ghoulish Games, it's going to be a fun night! We have committed ourselves to innovation in tabletop gaming, taking what we know to work and building on it with imagination.

Other Ways You Can Help

In addition to making a monetary contribution, you can show your support for what we are doing by sharing a link to this campaign on any social media platforms you use. Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? Let everyone know just what we have created and just how much you are looking forward to playing it. Get some friends together for launch day so that you can be one of the first people to post about it!

We spent over a year and a half carefully balancing the game through extensive play testing. Somehow, our friendships are still intact. Now that it’s just the way we pictured it, we’re ready to unleash it to the masses! Lastly, if you've made it this far down, thank you so much for checking out our campaign.

Risks and challenges

True tabletop gaming fanatics, we bring a lifetime of passion for gaming to Slay Your Friends, pouring all our knowledge into this experience in order to make it everything that we know we would get excited about in a game. Playing games and publishing them are, of course, two very different things, and whatever it takes to get this game out onto the market, we will do it, figuring out creative solutions to any roadblocks or delays that may get in our way. We will also remain transparent through this process, keeping our contributors in the loop regarding our timeline!
