Product Description

Product Description

Attend a Masquerade of the renaissance and try to discover the identity of your opponents. Who is telling the truth? Who is bluffing? Reveal the truth all while hiding your own true identity! The goal of the game is for players to gain the most gold pieces that they will amass either by telling the truth, or alternatively, bluffing. Players each receive a Character card, that they will switch, or not, with their opponents throughout the game play. At each turn, players have the option to either announce who there are, and therefore are able to activate the power of that Character, as long as none of the other players challenge them; to secretly look at their card; or to swap their card with another player.

Product Description

Attend a Masquerade of the renaissance and try to discover the identity of your opponents. Who is telling the truth? Who is bluffing? Reveal the truth all while hiding your own true identity! The goal of the game is for players to gain the most gold pieces that they will amass either by telling the truth, or alternatively, bluffing. Players each receive a Character card, that they will switch, or not, with their opponents throughout the game play. At each turn, players have the option to either announce who there are, and therefore are able to activate the power of that Character, as long as none of the other players challenge them; to secretly look at their card; or to swap their card with another player.

Players in Mascarade start with six coins and a randomly dealt a character card. Characters stay face up just long enough for players to more or less memorize them, then are turned face down. Your goal is to be the first player to hold 13 coins, and while you start nearly halfway to that goal, you can go down just as surely as you can go up!

On a turn you take one of three actions:

1) Announce your character: Claim the power of a certain character and take the associated action. You don't have to have that character card in front of you to take this action, but if someone else says that they're that character and reveals the card to prove it, that player takes the action instead while you lose one coin to the tribunal.

2) Swap cards or not: Take another player's character card along with yours, place them under the table, shuffle them around a bit, then give one card back to the other player while keeping one for yourself. You (presumably) know whether you changed characters and can have some idea of who you are now, but that other player might be in the dark.

3) Secretly look at your character: Look at your character card to make sure of who you are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game 30 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I got this for friends birthday party and was playing with 9 people, some of who don't often do board games, and everyone had an amazing and engaging time with Mascarade!

The rules seem both simple in some areas and complicated in others but they all work intuitively and smoothly with everyone attempting to keep tabs on everyone else's card and actions and swaps, it becomes a revelry of bluffing and call outs.

Love every minute with it, get as many people playing to get the most out of it!

Simple and brilliantly fun game, trying to keep track of which cards are where when you don't know if swaps have happened or not, and being so sure you have the card you are claiming only to find out you haven't got a clue where it's gone makes for a hilarious mind bending and extremely sociable game.
Add to that the gorgeous artwork on the cards and you have a game that any enthusiast should add to their collection. Makes for a brilliant gateway game to hook newer players into the hidden role concept. After several games of this you will most likely want to progress onto something a little more strategic, such as Coup or The Resistance, but it's a great game to pull out at the start of a gaming night to get everyone warmed up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little game 5 Jun 2014

Very easy to learn, works great in both smaller and larger groups, and is quite challenging as well. Especially in small groups, when playing with three players you really have to keep your concentration up.
