More about the Games & Designers:
Burn the Witch
“Burn the Witch” is a historically inspired social deduction party game of paranoia and deception. A group of 8-12 players is divided into Zealots and Sympathizers, and its burn or be burned. Zealots must discover the identities of the witches, while Sympathizers employ cunning and misdirection to turn the hysteria and pyromania of the zealots back onto themselves. The game was a favorite of ours at San Diego Comic Con, and launched to great success earlier this month on Kickstarter, where they were fully funded over 200% in a matter of hours.
