A secluded monastery. A dark secret. A plot for revenge. The Black Rose, a board game of deduction from Sebastian Chedal, incorporates all these things into a haunting experience. In The Black Rose, players take the role of investigators trying to suss out the accomplices of the player who’s embodying the Rector. You see, murders have been taking place at the monastery and everyone knows the Rector is behind it. What’s unknown is the identity of the accomplices helping him do his dirty work. The game is set in the same world as Shadows of Esteren, a gothic horror tabletop RPG. Take a look at the video below and lose yourself within the monastery halls, but try not to get caught within the Rector’s web of secrets and death.
