These are uncertain times. There has been a power void since the coup. Everyone from the highest aristocrat to the lowliest gang boss strives to gain the support of the guilds — but to get this means bribery, skullduggery, and knowledge of the four most powerful and influential figures in the city. Knowing when to strike requires cunning and prudence. News travels fast, and no guild wants to become infamous…unless of course they can profit from it!
We are so excited to announce our next game: Pot de Vin, a 3~6 players strategic Trick Taking card game about Bribery. This is our first game to go directly into distribution with a first print of 10k copies in 6 different languages thanks to our amazing partners (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese)
In Pot de Vin, the goal is to collect sets of different guild symbols by winning rounds and claiming the cards of your opponents. Gather the right amount of symbols to gain the most points. Jokers can be added to a guild of your choice, but watch out for the Pot de Vin; if you don’t collect them all, they will hurt you in the end.
No Kickstarter and no Stretch Goals, everything is already unlocked for an amazing final product. Spot UV and foiled box, 64 beautiful cards with metallic ink, plastic gems, a custom insert and a full color scorepad and pencil for just 15€ MSRP.
BRIBE TO GET POT DE VIN
Contest will start on August 21st
It probably came from the Middle Ages: fortified cities, which were the places where all merchants would come to to do their trade were fortified and guarded with only a couple of entry points. Theses gates were guarded by soldiers all day and all night.
Trading cities would often require a small tax from out-of-town merchants or peasants to enter the city and sell their goods. So some merchants would try to avoid paying the city tax by offering wine to the soldiers guarding the gates.
…and who wouldn’t accept wine when you have to guard a gate for hours in all weathers, especially when your salary is ridiculous and wine a luxury you cannot afford too often?
On August 21st, in the preorder page you will be able to Bribe a Guard to get the game for free! So you have time to think about how to bribe him (either candies, hugs or literally wine).
During the launch week, you will be able to send your bribe. The most original bribes will win a free copy of the game!
