What is Caretos about?

A rough granite landscape of wilderness and isolation lies in a rugged granite triangle in the far north of Portugal between the Gerês, Maro, and Montesinho Mountains. Many supernatural creatures have been seen in this region, including witches, werewolves, and the devilish Caretos.

With Caretos, a game for 2-4 players, you control a team of two Portuguese monsters that roam the region at night, hunting villagers. Your goal is to scare and capture more villagers than any of your opponents.

Villages and chapels are scattered around the map. Each turn, a player activates one of their monsters, moving it to scare and disperse groups of villagers or capture isolated villagers. The activation of a monster depends on the “energies of the night”; depending on the energy, the monster can move or use special abilities. The player can also activate neutral creatures: the Caretos (a gang of jokers, possessed villagers), who can block players and even capture them.
