Description Edit | History

Shadow Hunters is a survival board game set in a devil-filled forest in which three groups of characters—the Shadows, creatures of the night; the Hunters, humans who try to destroy supernatural creatures; and the Neutrals, civilians caught in the middle of this ancient battle—struggle against each other to survive.

You belong to one of these groups and must conceal your identity from others since you don't know whom you can trust—at least not initially. Over time, though, someone might decipher who you are through your actions or through Hermit cards, or you might even reveal yourself to use your special ability.

The key to victory is to identify your allies and enemies early because once your identity is revealed, your enemies will attack with impunity using their special abilities like Demolish, Teleport, and Suck Blood or their equipment cards such as the Rusty Broad Ax or Fortune Brooch. This ancient battle comes to a head and only one group will stand victorious—or a civilian, in the right circumstances, might claim victory.

The 2011 edition of Shadow Hunters from Z-Man Games includes the Shadow Hunters Expansion Kit, a set of ten new characters previously sold separately.

4 Shadow Hunterrs - Cartas Traduzidas
This is a non-official translation from the English version to aid players in my group that are not very proficient in English. The file is text-only, it was made to serve as a player aid and not a replacement of any game components, so there is no artwork whatsoever. But maybe it can help others.

1 Traduzione in italiano delle carte «Oxana spricht» e dei personaggi
Questo file contiene la traduzione in italiano delle 18 carte verdi «Oxana spricht» e delle dieci carte personaggio (solo del gioco base, niente espansione), ossia le carte i cui contenuti sono segreti: non ho ritenuto necessario tradurre le carte rosse e blu dal momento che queste sono pubbliche e basta una conoscenza basilare del tedesco anche di un solo giocatore per comprenderne gli effetti. Per usare questo file è sufficiente stamparlo, ritagliare le etichette ed incollarle od infilarle nella bustina della carta corrispondente.

8 Shadow Hunters Cheat Sheet
I made this chart of all the characters to keep track of them. This lists all the characters, their hit points, faction, win conditions and special abilities. It fits 2 charts per page, so print this 4 times and you've got enough to hand out to all 8 players! Happy Hunting.
