It's time to party - Dead Man's Cabal is back in stock!
This game has been hard to find on store shelves, so we're excited to announce that Dead Man's Cabal is finally back in stock! The Dice Tower included this game in the Top 10 Productions of 2019, due to its awesome plastic bone pieces and creepy (in a good way) illustrations of the ghostly party goers.
We're giving away these awesome enamel pins (see below) to four lucky winners who join our Discord server and answer this question in the #dead-mans-cabal channel: What refreshments would you serve to ghostly guests during your own dead man's cabal? (Winners chosen Friday)
You and your fellow practitioners of the dark arts have decided to throw a party, but since none of you have any friends outside of your dead cabal, you'll have to conjure the partygoers yourselves. Of course, what is a party amongst malevolent sorcerers without a little friendly competition? You'll be researching your dastardly necromantic rituals, collecting and using skulls and bones to perform them, acquiring runes to augment them, and (of course) placing side bets on your own successes. When it's all said and done, the party is just the icing on the corpse!
The gameplay of Dead Man's Cabal is a clever interplay of a unique action selection mechanism that allows players to choose both a private action followed by a group action, requiring tense decision making on the timing of the different phases of the game. Collect bodies, crystal skulls, runes and bring the dead back to life. Simple enough, but triggering actions in just the right order requires careful planning to make sure you aren't helping your competitors more than yourself.
