Friends is a feature in Town of Salem. It gives you the opportunity to add players to your own party and enter a game together, as well as send private messages, and receive game invites. You will also be able to see your Friend's current status, for example, whether they are online but AFK or if they are currently playing a game.

A Friends list can be brought up in the main menu, which lets you see your Friends' names and whether they are online or not.

Light Notes

Beside your friend's name, there will be a circle with varying colors. The color of the light depends on whether your friend is present or not.

  • Green: ONLINE. Your friend is not in a game, invite away!
  • Dark Blue: IN LOBBY. Your friend is currently in the lobby, waiting for the host or whatever they're up to.
  • Light Blue: IN GAME. Your friend is currently in a game.
  • Yellow: AWAY. Your friend is online and not in a game, but has not done anything for a little while.
  • Black: OFFLINE. Your friend is not playing Town Of Salem right now. 

If your friend owns the Coven expansion, they will have a red moon around their circle. Coven-Friend


Parties allow friends to chat and enter a game together.

The Host is marked with a 486 crown at the start of their name. The Host can invite people to their party, 477 give host or 489 invite players or 501 kick people in their party.

People with invite powers have a 498 arrow at the start of their name. They can invite people.

The Host is also the person who starts the game whenever they wish. If the number of players in their party fits in an existing lobby, the Host and their party will be put in an existing lobby. If the number of players in the party exceeds the amount of free spots in an existing lobby, the party will be put in a new lobby with the party's Host as the lobby's Host.

How to Create a Party

  • Once you are logged in, select "Play" at the top of the screen. A menu will pop up.
  • At the bottom of this menu, select "Create a Party". You are now the Host of the party.
  • At the top-right of the screen you may select which game mode you would like to play with your party.
  • At the bottom-right of the screen you may select "Invite" to invite players to join your party.
  • Once you've selected players to join, select "Invite Players" at the bottom of the screen to officially send your invitations. Wait for your friends to accept the invitation.

Referring a friend

Refer Box
How to refer
  • When a friend decides to sign up for an account, they may refer a person who told them about the game. This may only be done during the signup.

Rewards for being referred

  • When a friend refers you and also makes a purchase using real life currency, your count for referring friends will increase. This purchase may be buying the Steam version of the game, purchasing in-game promotions, and so on.
  • If a friend has referred you before Version 1.2.0, they do not have to make a purchase but rather they must complete 10 games.
