In the not too distant future, the government is run for profit by a new "royal class" of multi-national CEOs. Their greed and absolute control of the economy has reduced all but a privileged few to lives of poverty and desperation.Out of the oppressed masses rose The Resistance, an underground organization focused on overthrowing these powerful rulers. The valiant efforts of The Resistance have created discord, intrigue and weakness in the political courts of the noveau royal, bringing the government to brink of collapse. But for you, a powerful government official, this is your opportunity to manipulate, bribe and bluff your way into absolute power. To be successful, you must destroy the influence of your rivals and drive them into exile. In these turbulent times there is only room for one to survive.

The product/manufacturer descriptions do not describe this game very well. There are 5 different cards (and 3 copies of each). Each one gives you a special ability within the game. You are dealt 2 cards for your hand. The goal is to force your opponents to turn over (discard) both of their cards. Each turn you can choose to draw money from the bank or take a special action. Actions include spending money to force an opponent to discard, stealing money from an opponent and taking extra money from the bank. Cards can also be used even when it's not your turn to block others from taking certain actions. However, since all cards are dealt face down, you are free to pretend you have *any* card and can take any action you want. If someone challenges you, you have to either show that you have the card you claimed or you are forced to turn over a card (discarding it). If someone challenges you and you were telling the truth, they are the one who has to discard.
If you were to exclusively play this game for a long time with the same group of people, it might start to get old. However, as part of a set of games you play on game night/lunch with coworkers/whatever, you could play this for years. Beginners can pick it up quickly and it slots nicely into small amounts of free time.
The game uses a non-standard card size (65x100mm). If you want to protect the cards from wear, you can use Ultra Pro Special Size Card Sleeves or the more expensive Mayday Games 7 Wonders Sleeves. The cards are fairly sturdy and durable though, and the game comes in a stiff box. I would consider sleeving the cards anyway, since any card that gets scratched or bent will essentially ruin the whole deck. The box includes a set of reference cards and cardboard coins to use for money. To make the game more portable, you could summarize the actions on a piece of paper and use pennies.
The rules are easy enough to explain and the rounds are short enough that you can introduce it to newcomers quickly, and even if they are eliminated early it won't be long before a new game begins and they can get back into it. I have found the bluffing in this game to be so enjoyable that people are often looking to play "one more round," which is a sign of a fun game. "I have the Duke so I'm going to take two coins this turn..." says a player as you stare at the Duke in your own hand... there's only two in the deck... Can he really have the other? Do you call his bluff or just let him have his two coins for now? Good times. At a price point of under $15 USD this game is hard to pass up.
Because it's a bluffing game you'll want to be sure your cards don't get marked. You might want to consider sleeving them. The size is 65x100mm and the Ultrapro sleeves should fit fine. Ultra Pro Board Game Sleeve 65mm x 100mm - 50pk
Great little game that will generate some fun bluffing and backstabbing!
The fun part is that no one else knows what two characters you have so you can use any ability in the game as long as no one calls your bluff. If they do call your bluff and you don't have that character then you lose a 1 of your characters. If you do have that character you reveal them, add them back to the communal deck and get a new card and the accuser loses a character themselves.
Game is really fun and at the price it's currently at <$10 there's really no reason not to experience this awesome game.
