Product Description

MFG4106 Bacchus Banquet Board Game by Mayfair Games

It is 37 AD and Caligula is the extravagant Emperor of Rome! It is a time of excesses. It is a time of intrigue. And the latest gala in Caligulas short reign is starting tonight - Bacchus Banquet!

As a player, you are one of the nine honored guests - each with his or her own secret objective. You might be a glutton who is only there for the food and wine. You might be an avaricious opportunist longing for the presents that are often bestowed. You might be a conspirator in one of the many plots to kidnap or assassinate the Emperor. You might even be Caligula himself, exploiting the all too human foibles of his groveling subjects.

Whatever your true goals, you fully participate in the orgy of rich cuisine, fine wine, and elaborate entertainments. Caligula is watching! But be careful, accompanying every course is the potential of a drunken stupor, a subtle poison, or an assassins dagger - any one of which can destroy you and your aspirations.

So, put on your best toga, cleanse yourself, and hire a food taster. You have an engraved invitation to Bacchuss Banquet, and you are in for the night of your life!

- 110 Cards (93 Action, 9 Guest, and 8 Privilege)

This game was a hit with the friends I played this with. The rules were easy to pick up and everyone appreciated the amount of trust (and trickery!) needed to make this game fun. Games can be very short to somewhat long (around 45 minutes), depending on how everyone is playing the game. The play mats (which include the objectives of the various characters) and belt buckles are a plus and makes the game much more fun and interesting. A good game for 5 players, and cheap too!

I bought this game to use in a classroom setting (with a unit on Roman dining) and while I've not used it in class yet, I have played with some students and watched them play it also and it's been a good purchase. It's quick (the games I have seen last between 7 and 20 minutes) and doesn't just rely on luck, but they have to think about how to trick each other. The rules can be picked up within 2 or 3 minutes if someone who has played it can explain it well. I think it would also be a good in-between game or warm-up game between more serious ones. I've bought three sets of this total and am very happy with it! (1 personal, 2 for school) Be careful though - the cards can be bent fairly easily and a mark on one of the player cards would mean others could figure out who you are (which would be very detrimental in the game).
