Shadow Hunters

This great game シャドウハンターズ was designed by Yasutaka Ikeda and published in 2005.  Due to it's huge success, there are now several versions released in various languages all over the world!

It's a very easy to learn game.  Players are given a secret role which tells them which team they are on, which are : the Hunters, Neutrals, and Shadows fighting for survival.  Using 2 dice, they move around the different locations (which are randomly assigned) and perform actions that either deal damage or help another player, to slowly work out who is on their team and who is not.  The team left standing at the end of the game is the winner.

This is a really fun social game.  There's a lot to do, and anyone can play it.  It was so fun that I went out and bought myself a copy.   My friends have all enjoyed this game and we often play it with various groups.  It might be a bit hard to find as it's quite a popular game, so come visit one of our Gaming Days, and try it out.  I highly recommend it! 

No. of players: 4-8, I recommend 5 players or more
Playing Time: 30 minutes
Suitable for: new players, experienced players, adults
