Masque of the Red Death

Game ID:
Gaming Group
/ Company:
Short Description:
Based on Poe's short story. In this social elimination, role-playing party, players use abilities & social guile to either try to eliminate the Red Death, or serve it in eliminating the guests.
Long Description:
Players are guests at Prince Prospero's lavish masquerade. But some players serve the Red Death and are eliminating others by getting them cast out of the party or killed. The other team must cast the Red Death out of the party before too many succumb to the plague. Players use ability cards that can kill, search, rob, vote on, cast out or even zombify other players. Victory is achieved by effective use of these abilities along with team coordination and social guile to manipulate the party for your team’s favor. Cast out of the party? Maybe you can bribe your way back in. Dead? Perhaps a necromancer can make you 'undead'. With an infinite number of unique ability combinations and social dynamics, every game is different. An average game takes about an hour, so there will be time for multiple games. Learn more at
