Product Description

Accuse and defend your fellow townsfolk as you hunt down the witches of Salem. Act fast, before conspiracy turns you against your own. Salem is a strategic card game of deception built for 4-12 players, and is most suited for players aged 12-93. Estimated game time is 20-35 minutes. Game comes in antique-looking fake book box that can easily hide on your bookshelf. Successfully funded with $100K on Kickstarter in April 2015. GAME CONTENTS: 1 Faux Book Container 114 Cards (15 Town Hall, 39 Tryal, 60 Playing) 1 Hourglass 1 Manual (Includes character biographies) 14 Circle Tokens Players are given 3-5 Tryal cards which reveal the true identity of each player, "Witch" or "Not a Witch." Players then gather cards that they use to accuse or defend other players and to reveal their Tryal cards. Deciding who to trust is key to survival, since you can never play a card on yourself. Players can also use cards such as "Stocks", "Matchmaker", and "Asylum" to hurt their enemies or help their allies. One card, "Night", forces all players to close their eyes while the Witches choose someone to eliminate. The other black card, "Conspiracy," forces all players to inherit a Tryal card from another player. Killing witches quickly is essential, otherwise "Conspiracy" may soon have the whole town turned evil. 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 hung for witchcraft? Or perhaps you will be a witch yourself, escape conviction, and bring Salem to the ground.

From the Manufacturer


The game box is an antique-looking faux book.

Don't toss this game on top of a stack inside your messy game closet. Instead, disguise your Salem game on your bookshelf. Book remains closed with a magnet.

Play as John Proctor, Samuel Parris, Mary Warren, and 12 other real people from Salem, Massachusetts.

Jump right into the world of Salem as you play as one of the key personalities involved in the actual witch trials from 1692.


Social Deception Card Game

Salem builds upon the class social deception games of Mafia, Werewolves, Bang!, and Resistance, and twists things just the right amount.

Rulebook Includes Biographies of all Characters

Bring the game to life as you learn more about the real victims and accusers in the back of the rulebook.

Raised $103K on Kickstarter

Salem was crowdfunded in April 2015. We now sell the game all over the world.

About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Find the Witches

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

We both grew up loving board games. One game in particular, mafia, was always a favorite. Salem began as a personal project to improve upon some of the shortcomings of some of our favorite social deception games. When we launched Salem in Kickstarter, we were blown away by the demand for the game. We haven't looked back since!

What makes your product special?

From the book box it arrives in, to the beautiful illustrations on the cards, to the suspenseful gameplay, Salem strives to be unique. It is able to take its players into another realm, back in time to an atmosphere of fear and suspicion.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

It has been incredibly rewarding seeing Salem played all over the world! What started as something that we put our hearts and minds into within the walls of our own home has now become something that we can share with thousands of other people in theirs.
