The year is 1692 and the witch hunt in Salem, Massachusetts is heating up. Players, each representing a historical person from the town of Salem, will play accusation cards to reveal other players’ Tryal cards. If all Witch Tryal cards are found, the remaining townspeople win! But be careful who you trust; the Conspiracy card may soon turn your friends into witches. Before long, accusations will be flying and screams of “She’s a Witch!” will wake the neighbors. Will you be the hero who purges your town of witches, or will you be wrongly accused and hanged for witchcraft? Or perhaps you will become a witch yourself, escape conviction, and bring Salem to the ground in hysteria.
Salem 1692 is the 2nd Edition of the game (previously called “Salem”), and comes in a larger, stronger faux book box than the 1st Edition and is the same size as Tortuga 1667. It is a standalone game in the Dark Cities series of games by Facade Games.
Note: Page 9 of the printed rulebook should read “After Night is over, shuffle the discard pile to re-form the deck, again placing Night at the bottom. Continue playing where you left off.” The PDF you can download here contains the correction.
