Essen 2014 – Cypher
Not a game I wasn’t bothered about…
…but for £2 I’ll take it 🙂
Yep, picked it up in a bundle with Empire Engine, thank you AEG 🙂
So this is Love Letter-ish, draw 1 play 1. But this time the start player gets 3 cards, the last player gets 1 card and everyone else gets 2.
On your turn you draw 1, play 1, resolve it, pass a card left, pass a card right.
The cards you play are characters of Upper, Middle and Lower class and they have abilities that mess around with each other and your opponents while in play.
When the deck runs out the game ends and you core points for your characters.
We only played it once and it was pretty good… Not Love Letter/Lost Legacy good but good all the same. Looking forward to trying it more.
