Deal with the Devil is a hidden-role game for exactly 4 players. Three of the players are in possession of a mortal soul, and the fourth player -- the devil -- definitely wants a piece of it. Using an app-driven secret-deal mechanic, players will sell resources and perhaps their cardboard souls to get the materials they need to construct buildings and improve their medieval kingdoms.

  • Build your Medieval City in a Distinct Fantasy Realm.
  • Sell a piece of your soul for wealth, but watch out for the inquisition!
  • Deduct who might be a devil, who serves him, and who already sold a piece of their soul.
  • Only the companion app knows who is really who and doesn't reveal it to anyone.
  • Remember, every choice has a consequence - Balance your reputation with your actions.
