Welcome to Salem. A once peaceful town, until the Mafia and Serial Killers arrived. Murders are happening left, right, and center, and everyone is guilty until proven innocent. Will the Town find and lynch the Mafia and Serial Killer, or will the Mafia win with murders and shady dealings, or will the Serial Killer win, killing everyone else in the process? Only time will tell in the Town of Salem.

Pro Fun bluffing based gameplay
The main aspect of the game is that you never know if anyone is lying to you at any particular time. This also goes for the player as well, as you can lie to anyone anytime. Which makes for quite the guessing game that asks of the player to use their deduction skills. When doing this with large groups and especially groups of friends this can make for a fun time trying to figure out who is doing what in the game.
Pro Dedicated player base
Tons of people are playing Town of Salem and its different game modes, so you won't have a problem finding people to play with.
Con Uses Adobe Flash
Most browsers are starting to deprecate Flash as a plugin, (unless you have a browser like Google Chrome, which uses its own fork of Flash) you won't be able to play this game without having to purchase it on Steam.
Sometimes, players act against their goals to win. For example, a member of the Mafia may end up purposefully revealing the whole Mafia. At that point the game is practically over. Luckily, you can report people who are gamethrowing within the game itself.
Con High learning curve
It may be best to read up on this game and familiarize oneself to the rules and mechanics as well as common abbreviations. One particular aspect to learn about would be the 29 different roles found in the game, as you may be any one of them at the beginning of a game.
