Welcome to the dead man's party! This nail-biting strategy game will keep you on your toes as you and your opponents cast spells to bring the most legendary parties of the past back from the dead. You'll be tasked to collect skulls in the colors you need. Then you'll need to assembly them in the correct pattern to raise the dead. But there is a catch - be careful not to help your opponents while trying to get ahead yourself.

Each player starts with a deck of cards and a small pool of resources. On their turn, a player can perform a variety of actions, such as drawing cards, playing cards, and acquiring new cards to add to their deck. The player can also use their resources to summon spirits and complete rituals, which earns them victory points. The game continues until all players have completed five turns, at which point the player with the most victory points wins.

Dead Man's Cabal is a fun strategy game that looks pretty intimidating at first. After your first time though, you'll be begging to play again - if you made it out alive. This spooky themed board game is unlike any other you have played and will be a great addition to anyone's gaming closet. Learn how to play below with the official game rules.
