AVALON HILL Guillotine
This line is only available for bricks and mortar stores.
The revolutionary card game where you win by getting a head. This irreverent and humorous card game takes place during the French Revolution. Players represent rival guillotine operators vying for the best collection of noble heads over three rounds. Each round twelve nobles are lined up for the guillotine. The nobles are worth varying points depending on their notoriety. During your turn you play action cards to change the order of the line so you can collect the best nobles. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. Will you be skillful enough to bribe the guards to collect Marie Antoinette? Or will you lose points for beheading the Hero of the People? Heads are going to roll!
Each round, cartooned nobles are lined-up for the Guillotine. Players take turns manipulating the order of the line to disrupt other players’ plans and earn the most points.
At the end of three rounds, the player with the most points wins the favor of the townspeople and the game.
The cartoony art and lighthearted tone turn this dark subject into an interesting and fun strategy game.
Overall, Guillotine’s quick setup and simple rules make it the perfect starter or filler game when time is short.
