A new kind of deduction game...Can you hide in plain sight?
2-8 Players | 60-120 Minutes
Play as a divine being who has sired a demigod in the realm of humankind. The identity of your lineage is known only to you. Use positional play to complete quests—and influence fate to ensure the outcome is in your favor. Strike the perfect balance of misdirection and mischief to capture the throne.
There are 9 Demigods. At the beginning of the game, each player is secretly assigned one Demigod as their offspring. When the game begins, however, players may control the actions of any Demigod, not just their own. Through strategic play, special powers, and secret voting, players must aid their Demigod in gaining Renown. But be careful! Giving away your lineage too soon may cause the other players to work together toward your Demigod’s demise.
On their turn, players will have 2 actions with which to send Demigods on quests. Each Quest can result in 2 different ways, which the gods influence with secret voting cards called Fate Cards. When a Quest is completed, the Fate cards are revealed and the winning side of the card is resolved, giving some Demigods Renown and taking it from others. A player wins if their Demigod has the most Renown at the end of 3 rounds called ages, and that Demigod becomes the heir to the throne.
Part social deduction, part strategy, Veiled Fate pits wit against wit. Every move is a new clue to discovering the true lineage of your opponents. Can you foil carefully laid plans, while cementing your own path to victory?
Discover strategic deduction
A unique combination of strategy and social deduction for anyone who loves table-talk. Use strategic positional play and secret voting to influence the fate of 9 demigods. Discern the motives behind your opponents moves to unravel their plans, while cementing your own.
"IV Studio refer to Veiled Fate as a 'strategic deduction' game and frankly... they nailed it! We had a great time. I seriously cannot wait to play this game over and over again with friends and family! It's gorgeous, plays perfectly, and is very approachable."
Capture the throne
A party game for gamers who don't like party games
Veiled Fate has all the tell-tale signs of a party game—exciting reveals, laughable moments, anger-inducing outcomes—packaged in a sophisticated strategy game with constant tactical decision-making.
Veiled Fate is such a masterpiece. It truly is the best mixing of social deduction and strategy you could have. The gameplay is simple like social deduction, but the strategy requires a depth of thinking on par with other strategy games. With enough twists and turns through Age and City Cards, the game isn't over until the very end. Having to balance secrecy with strategy is something that few other games have and something that Veiled Fate exceeds in.
