How to play Town of Salem - The Coven on PC (3 Easy Steps):
A Game of Murder, Mystery, and Deception
Developed by BlankMediaGames, Town of Salem for PC is a browser-based strategy RPG riddled with deception, murder, and mob hysteria. It takes place in Salem, Massachusetts where homicides are at an all-time high. Things kick off when 7 to 15 players meet at the town lobby. Everyone acquires a random role. There are over 30 roles and each one belongs to one of four main alignments. Townies (the good guys) are on a mission to lynch every criminal and evil-doer. The dark side consists of Coven and Mafia members that kill everyone who stands in their way. On the other hand, Neutrals can fight for either side.
Every round features a night phase, during which players can put their abilities to use. For example, serial killers sneak around murdering people, doctors heal the injured while the Sherriff grills suspicious fellows. When day breaks and a murder has occurred, the discussion phase starts. Voting takes place and one person is chosen to go to trial. The suspect must then defend him/herself with words only in the chat room. After the defense phase, players than vote to pass judgment. Guilty criminals are sentenced to death by hanging.
Fun Intellectual Challenge
Town of Salem for PC relies on your intuition rather than super fast reflexes. Who you choose to believe can be the difference between life and death. There is a fair amount of lying that goes on, so it is your job to distinguish deceit from truth. And, if you are on trial, you better have a very convincing story or else end up in the gallows. Discussions between players are the key to winning, which makes this a fun intellectual challenge. With numerous roles being assigned at random, the game gives you a fresh perspective each time.
Tips and Tricks for Playing Town of Salem – The Coven on PC
• Unlock New Game Modes
There are up to 9 different game modes in Town of Salem for PC. Each mode varies the balance of roles, giving players a new and different experience. Some versions remain locked until you complete a set number of rounds in a previous game mode. So, the more you play, the more game modes you can unlock.
• Choose a Unique Name
New players make the mistake of choosing a common name or one that is similar to someone else. This might get the wrong person lynched. Other players will also have difficulty whispering to you or including your name in their last will.
• Write in Your Last Will
Chronicle your activities in the Last Will during the day or before the night ends. This can serve as a good lead for investigative roles to follow up on in case you are killed. Mafia roles may also benefit from having a fake Last Will to cover-up their nefarious acts.
• Don’t Take Vital Intel to the Grave
When you die with vital information, don’t be in a hurry to leave the game. There is a chance that you can pass on what you know to a Medium or seek the help of a Retributionist who will bring you back to life.
