Set in Guild Ball‘s devious, backstabbing Empire of the Free Cities, Shadow Games is a fast-paced game for 2–6 cunning players.
In Shadow Games, you must gather enough favors to secure the new star player for your guild. Players use various Plot and Agent cards to bribe, steal, and earn favor, but it is not enough to simply play the cards you receive. Fortune favors the bluffers! Play a card from your hand, and call it anything you want. If you convince your opponents of your lies, you will not only reap the rewards of the card you pretended to have, but also gain a powerful bluff bonus that will accelerate your victory. Just don’t get caught—it will cost you valuable favors to save face.
