A Party game of moral dilemmas and trolley murder
Trial by Trolley is a multiplayer game in which one player plays the conductor on a runaway train intent on killing anything in its path. Every player aside from the conductor must play cards and argue to the conductor and convince him to spare their lives and condemn everyone else to a gruesome death by trolley.
Step 1: Choose one of your friends to be the conductor. The rest of you break into two teams.
Step 2: Each track gets a random “innocent” card to start them off
Step 3: Each team plays another “innocent” card on their track. I sure wouldn’t want to hit either of those.
Step 4: Each team sabotages the other track with a “guilty” card. Oh, those are bad!
Step 5: Then each player plays modifier cards onto any character on either track to help sway the conductor to their side.
Step 6: Everyone argues for their lives, and the conductor decides which track to murder!
As most of us are adjusting to life locked in our homes, we wanted to share a new variation on Trial by Trolley that allows you to play the game remotely with friends who don’t own the game.
This is just a simplified ruleset that keeps things moving so that you can get to the fun part and argue about who you think deserves to get murdered by a trolley!
Each pack includes 500 game cards. 200 innocence cards, 125 guilty cards, and 175 modifier cards.
The game also includes the paper game mat necessary to play through it
Last but not least, the 26 death tokens necessary to declare the winner also come included with the game
