All the cards in this set are printed with a star at the lower right portion.

When you play "Shadow Hunters" using these additional cards, you need to use the following procedures printed below. Then read the "Game setup" section.

  • Replace character cards

    There are several ways to replace character cards. Please discuss among participating players and decide your favorite way.

  • Play only with these additional characters.

    Only the characters included in this set are used. All the basic character cards will be replaced with these additional character cards.

  • Play by replacing basic characters with new characters of your choice.

    This allows you to use your favorite characters per each character name initial.

    Please choose your favorite characters from this set and replace basic characters with the same initial with them. (Replace "Emi" with "Ellen" for example).

  • Play by mixing new characters with the basic ones - PART 1.

    You choose characters from the 20 characters that consist of both new characters in this set and basic characters. Out of the character cards in this set and basic character cards, shuffle two cards with the same name initial with their back facing up.

    Then pick one with its back facing up. Sort it by the category; Shadow, Hunter, Neutral. Repeat this 10 times to get 10 character cards.

  • Play by mixing new characters with the basic ones PART 2.

    You choose characters from the 20 characters that consist of both new characters in this set and basic characters. Characters can appear in any possible combination.

    Because characters of the same name initial can appear, the HP difference between Shadow and Hunter is considerable.


Win condition of new characters

Agnes - When the game is over, if the player to your immediate right wins, you also win. Even if "Agnes" or the player to your immediate right is already dead, if the player to your immediate right fulfills the win condition, Agnes also wins.

Bryan - You win if your attack kills a character whose HP is 13 or more. This doesn't apply in the case where you kill other characters by the effect of cards such as Area Cards, White, Black, or Hermit Cards.

If you kill multiple characters at the same time with the Black equipment card "Machine Gun" and among the killed characters is one whose HP is 13 or more, you win. Alternately, Bryan wins if he is on the "Erstwhile Altar" when the game is over.

Catherine - You win if you die first. If you die at the same time as another character(s) and no other character died before you did, you are deemed to be the first one to die and become the winner. Alternately, you win if you are one of last two characters standing.

David - You win when you are equipped with 3 or more of the following White equipment cards at the same time; "Spear of Longinus", "Holy Robe", "Silver Rosary", "Talisman".


Special abilities of the additional characters

Agnes - (capriccio)



Only once during the game, this can be used at the start of your turn. When used, you can change your win condition to "The player to your immediate left wins". Once you use this special ability, you can not restore the original win condition.

Bryan - (My GOD!!!)



When your attack kills a character whose HP is 12 or less (ex. "Fu-ka" or "Ultra Soul"), you must reveal your identity.

You do not have to reveal your identity when you kill a character using the effect of cards such as Area Cards, White, Black, or Hermit Cards because they are not considered to be "attacks".

Catherine - (stigmata)



This can be used at the start of each of your turns. When used, you can heal 1 point of your damage. Nothing happens if you have no damage. This effect does not come into play unless you declare the use of the special ability at the start of your turn.

David - (grave Digger)



Once during the game, even out of turn, you can obtain one equipment card of your choice from any of the discard piles.

Ellen - (Chain of Forbidden Curse)



Once during the game, this can be used at the start of your turn. After you declare the use of your special ability, you choose a character. The chosen character will lose his/her special ability until the end of the game.

The character who lost his/her special ability will not be able to declare the use of/apply the effect of his/her special ability at all. Ellen's ability continues even if she dies.

Fu-ka - (dynamite Nurse)



Once during the game, this can be used at the start of your turn. After you declare the use of your special ability, you choose a character. The chosen character's damage amount will be set to 7 regardless of the current damage amount.

Gregor - (ghostly Barrier)



Once during the game, this can be used at the end of your turn (when all the attack actions and death judgments are done or after you declare not to attack another character).

By using this ability, you won't receive any damage until the start of your next turn. When you are instructed to take damage by a Hermit card, simply declare "Nothing happens".

This special ability does not work against effects that change the absolute value of damage, such as damage recovery effects or the white card "First Aid".

Ultra Soul - (murder Ray)



At the start of your turn, you can give 3 points of dam- age to one character who is at the "Underworld Gate".

Valkyrie - (horn Of War Outbreak)



When you attack another character, you only roll the 4-sided die and inflict the amount of damage rolled.

Wight - (multiplication)



Once during the game, this can be used at the end of your turn (when all the attack actions and death judgments are done or after you declare not to attack another character).

You continue your turn a number of times equal to the amount of dead characters in the game. The number of extra turns does not include your original turn. (For example, if 1 character is already dead, you get 1 extra turn after you finish your original turn).

Note: You do not get more turns if you kill characters during these extra turns. The amount of extra turns is fixed based on the current number of dead characters at the time you activate your ability.
