Something is not right at the boarding school. The children are acting a little… weird. Something has taken them over, something nobody can fully explain. While the Priest says he has ways to help, most just want to deal with any children thought to be possessed with slightly… quicker means (meaning they get the axe). Will the sane be able to find all the possessed in time? Or will insanity reign at the school? That’s the story behind The Damned Children, a party card game up on Kickstarter based on the classic game, Werewolf.
In the game, players are randomly and secretly assigned a role. They can either be sane children, the doctor, the nurse, or one of the possessed. The goal for the sane side is to kill off the possessed players. The possessed are looking to get rid of the sane. The game also adds in the Principal and the Ghosts. They help players not feel left out after they’re killed in the game. The Principal helps run the game after the first night, while the ghosts can simply help or hinder whichever side they want. There are also artifacts. They each have a unique ability that can be used once per game during the “day” part of a turn. They have various effects that can help in your investigations, or cause people to be thrown off your track.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 29 days.
