Description

"Liberty! Equality! Eclairs!"

The glorious revolution has done away with tyranny! Now you and your friends make up the Revolutionary Committee, overseeing justice throughout the land. Still, now that the Queen's gone it would be a shame to let all that cake go to waste...

Become the first among equals by amassing honour!
Become happy by amassing cake!
Send your friends' pawns to the guillotine!
First to forty cakes wins!

From Peer Sylvester comes a game of committees, coercion and cake. Elect your friends to positions of power in the hope that they look on your patronage favourably, or denounce them as enemies of the revolution. Alliances and betrayal are all fair game as you try to amass as much cake as you can before the revolution collapses.

Review quote

"This is a good social game." - Toucan Play that Game

"Dice Tower Judgement: Approved!" - Tom Vasal, The Dice Tower

"Through a simple system of colored cards to represent votes it allows what appears to be a fun, silly game about the Revolution to become surprisingly political." - Ghettoblaster

"This game comes alive with a gaming group of friends who are not afraid to play a 'Friendship Killer' game. Between the backstabbing and browbeating this game ramps up the level of intensity this game delivers." - Two-Gun Pixie

"The art is really good and whimsical, turning a fairly dark and depressing theme of taking people's heads, into an enjoyable romp through history . . . The components are top notch and the art is fantastically flippant. Overall, this is a great game for groups that enjoy party games with negotiation and voting." - The Players' Aid "This is a good social game." - Toucan Play that Game
