The Banishment final prototype.

Banishment is a 2-5 player asymmetrical, semi-cooperative card game about exorcism. Embrace your dark side and play the part of a monstrous Demon or join the valiant Exorcists and attempt to banish the foul abomination.

The Cult War Expansion Set adds powerful new relics to the Exorcists arsenal, as well as foul magicks that favour the Demon.

If you have two copies of the Banishment base game as well as the expansion cards, you can unlock the Cult War variant, a 6 player game where two teams, called Cults, attempt to be the first to summon the dreaded Dark One.

You can buy the game and its expansion from our store.


The Exorcists win the game when all Rituals are resolved.

The Demon wins the game when the Demon Dice reaches 10.
