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!
This campaign is to once again bring the cooperative (and sometimes competitive) fun of Slaughterville to the public. We have been asked if we had planned on doing a reprint and, with Slaughterville 2 coming soon, we decided to launch this campaign to fulfill that request. You will notice a few changes in this campaign from the last one. This version of the game will come with the updated rules (which will also be in Slaughterville 2). There will be incentives and exclusives for this campaign when we reach the funding goals. Citizens of the first campaign will be able to get copies of these promos and incentives by pledging to the $5 level. If we blow the goal out of the water, we have been discussing other incentives in addition to the promo cards. We will release more information on that when the time comes. We also wanted those citizens who joined the fight to feel like their character or ally was unique for that game and have decided to offer new citizens the chance to be in the game. For that reason, we will be creating 2 tiers for new Characters and Allies to allow new citizens to join the fight. So thank you for stopping by our quaint little town and we look forward to having you move in! Don’t mind the zombies and please stay out of the Asylum…you may come out crazier than when you went in.
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.
The Slaughterville game features 500+ professionally-designed cards. 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.
6 Villains (Each with their own Mat and 24 Card Deck): The Villain is the driving force behind the game. The Villain determines the win conditions and the type of game that the player will experience.
11 Locations (Each with their own Mat and 24 Card Deck): These places where the citizens visit when trying to defeat the villain and save the day. The Locations will contain not only helpful items, but also surprises.
13 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
- 30 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.
