Slasher: Tabletop RPG lets gamers play out a slasher movie


The tabletop RPG game Slasher lets horror fans play out their own slasher film storyline using various tropes and stereotypes from slasher movies.

Don’t just watcher slasher movies… play them!

If you can’t decide between having game night or watching some horror films, this just might be the perfect compromise.  That brings me to Slasher, a tabletop RPG set in the style of slasher films. Made by the fans for the fans of the horror sub-genre, this game ought to be a great way to spend a Friday night with your horror-loving buddies.

As you can probably guess, there’s a player that controls the killer, of the “Slasher.” The rest make up various stereotypical horror movie characters, with whom you’ll try to survive the night. But what really intrigues me is that there’s another player that gets to be the “Producer.” This person comes up with the storyline and the setting for the rest of the players to follow. That’s definitely the role I’d be calling dibs on most games!

It just wouldn’t be a horror movie without car trouble.

From the designer:

"Slasher is a competitive tabletop RPG that pays homage to the Slasher genre.  It includes all the tropes you’d expect in the movies, from character types such as the Jock or Virgin, to to things like tripping while running, or dropping keys.One player creates the Slasher character by choosing from different perks and abilities.  One player is the Producer,  who is responsible for coming up with the storyline,  setting,  etc. and has a deck of Trope cards to play to try and ensure that a certain amount of Slasher movie rules are met.  The rest make the cast of the stereotypical characters from the movies and have to try to survive or defeat the Slasher.It has multiple game modes such as Classic which plays out like Halloween or Friday the 13th type and Whodunnit which is more like a Scream movie.  No two playthroughs will ever be the same unless players want to revisit a Set or story previously created.  The Set is drawn up on the included dry erase map like a blueprint of the location the game takes place such as a house and yard."
