Donner Dinner Party
Donner Dinner Party is a rowdy game of frontier cannibalism!
Who's safe when there are cannibals hiding among you? That's the question at the heart of this fast-paced game of social deduction in which cannibals and pioneers face off in a fight for survival. Set in the winter of 1846, players are members of the ill-fated Donner Party wagon train, stranded atop a mountain with no food. Who will avoid becoming tonight's dinner and make it off the mountain alive? And who are the suspicious scoundrels hungry for human flesh?
In more detail, Donner Dinner Party is a social deduction game in which players are either pioneer or cannibal. Each player has equipment as well, and sometimes that will help you survive — unless of course you're a cannibal, in which case you might want to play dumb about what you have.
The party goes hunting regularly to try to survive, and the cannibals will try to thwart these efforts since they really prefer the taste of human flesh. In the end, if the number of cannibals equals the number of pioneers, the cannibals win; if the pioneers survive seven weeks without this happening, then they win instead.
