Getting gold out of the ground can be a hard, laborious, back-breaking process.
… Best to just wait until some other sucker does it and then take it from them.
That’s just what you’ll be doing in Deadwood 1876, a new social deduction game from Facade Games. In it, you’ll play as partners in crime, looking to steal as much gold as you can from the people of Deadwood. However, being thieves, none of you can be trusted, and so before you make off with your loot, you’d better make sure nobody else has put a bullet in your back. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
There’s gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota, and you’ve come to find (or steal) your share. You’re staying at one of the three major establishments in Deadwood where you and your associates are working together to steal some of the gold-filled safes floating around town. But you suspect that the “friends” you’re working with are secretly plotting to keep all the gold for themselves. Will you be ready to turn on them before they shoot you in the back?
Deadwood 1876 is a social deduction game where you’ll work with teammates to find and collect gold. But in the end, the team with the most gold will have to fight each other to the death to determine the winner! Will you spend your turns helping your team find gold, or preparing to defeat your own teammates in the Final Showdown?
2-9 Players. 20-40 minutes. Ages 13+.
The Kickstarter campaign is something like 15x funded, and then some, but there’s only 7 days until the end (don’t worry, unlike in the game, you don’t have to fight other backers to the death).
