For anyone who ever screamed at a horror movie, “What are you doing?! Don’t go in there! What are you thinking?!”, here is your chance to make your own choices. Slaughterville takes you on a journey through a town that just happens to be host to numerous supernatural and horrific phenomena. Will you defeat the villain, or become yet another hapless victim? Abandon all hope, ye who enter Slaughterville!
During the game, you play the role of one of Slaughterville's citizens. Each one of these citizens has a special ability that can help you save the day.
During your turn, you must visit one of the six locations in play. Each location has a deck of 24 cards. These cards are used to determine what happens to you as you try to defeat the villain and save the day. A multi-player game is completely cooperative unless… well… We'll just leave it at that. It's better to not think about such things.
Add $10 to your base game pledge or opt for one of the Deluxe Levels to get the Dream Demon and 24 additional cards added to your card total!
The Slaughterville game features 524 professionally-designed cards (548 if you are a DELUXE LEVEL backer or have added $10 to your pledge). Here's what you'll get with your copy of Slaughterville:
1 Player Starting Area Mat: This contains information on the actions that can be performed at the Player Starting Area.
9 (10 with the Dream Demon) Villain Starting Area Mats: These mats are used for the Villain Starting Area and will contain information on the Villain and Player requirements for the game.
12 Location Mats: The places where the citizens visit when trying to defeat the villain and save the day. The Asylum, The Cemetery, The Church, The Farm, The Forest, The General Store, and The Residential Neighborhood are included with the base game!
12 - 24-card Location decks: Each deck is loaded with perils and possible help. Will you find the much needed pistol or will you be attacked by a giant spider?
9 (10 with the Dream Demon) - 24-card Villain decks: These depraved, deadly deviants are what drive the action in Slaughterville. Each villain comes with their own win condition and rules for the players. These decks serve as the life and main method of terror for the Villains. Will the Cannibals invite you for dinner or will you become part of the Body Snatcher’s swarm? Will the Serial Killer practice his deadly art on you and your friends or will the Beast Within finally be released?
26 Character cards: These cards represent those tried and true horror staples like the Nerd or the ever appreciated Hottie. Can the Jock save the town or will the Spiritualist cleanse the evil? You can only be sure by working together!
- 12 Dice
- 6 Player Pawns
- 1 Villain Pawn
- 60 Chitboard Wound/Clue Tokens
- 1 Chitboard First Player Token
- 1 Rulebook
Will you and your friends survive your stay in Slaughterville? Only time will tell and it's running out quickly. So grab your ALLIES, a handy Shotgun, and discover some long lost CLUES and maybe, just maybe, you can stop the spread of evil and save Slaughterville.

For Slaughterville, we've partnered with Ship Naked so that wherever you're from, your shipment will be customs friendly for you! If you are charged for VAT or customs, Ship Naked will reimburse you for those charges.
We're on Kickstarter to raise the funds to produce Slaughterville. Both Chris and I have invested money and time in the game design, photography, prototype printing and all other costs of getting the game created and tested. Now, we need your help. We need to cover costs of the printing, packaging, shipping, stretch goals, exclusives and so on. With your support, this can happen!
Risks and challenges
SLAUGHTERVILLE is the creation of Chris Brown and designed by George Rubio and Rubio Games. This is the second release from Rubio Games on Kickstarter, and we're very thrilled to be able to get it in your hands. Much was learned during District-Z's very successful Kickstarter and there was a lot of feedback from the backers.
The game, from rules, to testing, to artwork is done. Now we need help from you the people who can make SLAUGHTERVILLE a reality.
We've gathered pricing and timelines to ensure that this project goes as smoothly as possible. That said, the unforeseen does happen (as it did with District-Z). There isn't a guarantee that production timelines won't slip or there won't be shipping delays. We will make sure that you receive constant updates on the status of the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
