Le Roy des Ribauds details

Le Roy des Ribauds overview

Le Roy des Ribauds is a card game adaptation of the famous comic series created by Vincent Brugeas and Ronan Toulhoat.

At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt a hand of 3 cards, and a row of 4 face-down cards, called the Court, is created. There are 4 type of cards: Roi (King) , Reine (Queen), Chevalier (Knight) and Assassin (Rogue).

On their turn, a player can either flip a card on the Court, revealing it, or play one of the cards from their hand to replace a card already on the Court. The player may put their card face-up, activating its effect, or face-down.

Each type of card has its own effect, and the Roi (King), the Reine (Queen) and the Assassin (Rogue) have their own victory conditions, called conspiracies. Be the first to fulfill one of these conspiracies to win the game!

Le Roy des Ribauds is a tense and strategic, yet deceptively simple card game, that'll allow you to immerse yourself into the rich universe of medieval France.
