Product Description

Prince John is coming to Nottingham! Players, in the role of merchants, see this as an opportunity to make quick profits by selling goods in the bustling city during the Prince's visit. However, players must first get their goods through the city gate, which is under the watch of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Should you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit, or risk it all by sneaking in illicit goods? Be mindful, though, as the Sheriff always has his eyes out for liars and tricksters and if he catches one, he very well may confiscate those goods for himself! In Sheriff of Nottingham, players will not only be able to experience Nottingham as a merchant of the city, but each turn one player will step into the shoes of the Sheriff himself. Players declare goods they wish to bring into the city, goods that are secretly stored in their burlap sack. The Sheriff must then determine who gets into the city with their goods, who gets inspected, and who may have their goods confiscated! Do you have what it takes to be seen as an honest merchant? Will you make a deal with the Sheriff to let you in? Or will you persuade the Sheriff to target another player while you quietly slip by the gate? Declare your goods, negotiate deals, and be on the lookout for the Sheriff of Nottingham!

Sheriff of Nottingham is a lot of fun, but does require a particular type of person to play. The game is predominately about bluffing, or at least bluffing at the right time to get through as many goods passed your friends as possible.

The detail in the game is great, the coins, market stands and sheriff token are thick card and the artwork is outstanding. This game has high production values, even the box has this unique feel and grain.

Generally its an awesome game, recommend 4+ players for the best experience.

A fantastic game that is very easy to pick up and doesn't take too long to complete. It is a great game to play when not everyone knows each other as the players are forced into discussion with each other.

The game has elements of lying, bribery and strategy. The illustrations are well done and there appears a good balance to the game - i.e. the different ways you can win. Thoroughly enjoyable and a new staple.

This game is really good fun with enough people, but probably wouldn't recommend for smaller groups. It's very quick and easy to pick up and can lead to a lot of hilarity if you play with a group willing to roleplay a bit. I'd suggest with 4 people to play for at least one extra round, as it was a little too quick for my taste. Otherwise, a solid and fun game!

Amazing party game. My wife is generally not much of a gamer past classis like othello and chess, but we both love this. Being a game based almost entirely on bluffing there is a high amount of social interaction, and laughing as everyone tries to figure out who's lying and who's not. Great fun and best with the maximum number of players.

A really fun game but you definitely need to have 3 or more players to get any real enjoyment out of it. You got to be good at lying to have a good chance of winning. If your in and doubt about buying this game I would suggest watching the Will Wheaton Tabletop YouTube video as that totaly sold it to me.

Really good fun! Watching friends squirm when you call their bluff, getting people to pay other people to check bags or seeing couples and close friends try and tell if the other is lying. Been played many times, the contents look great and are made from thick card. It even had drink spilled on it one night and the card didn't split or warp. If you like playing games with friends or family or want a good game to start with I would suggest this, even my nephews like it and they are 8 and 10.

Recently started getting myself a group of friends into tabletop games and this seemed simple enough, I'd seen a couple of video reviews/plays of this so it was easily understood to me, but a little bit difficult to begin explaining to others without playing a round while doing so. Feels like you have to explain every aspect of the game for anything to make sense but I found as soon as we'd played a couple of rounds everyone seemed to know exactly what to do.
Have played 4 and 5 player games (shame 6 isn't really included as it could probably work with a few extras) and was a lot of fun on every occasion. Perhaps not the game for you if you have trust issues...

Quality of the contents seems great, nice thick cardboard for the player character cards and coins. Some of the merchant bags can be a little tough to open (although they haven't been ripped yet) and a couple of the goods cards have been badly creased due to trouble opening a bag on occasion, but that shouldn't affect the game as the cards are mostly kept hidden when it matters anyway.

This is a lovely game that's all about playing mind games with each other. There is not much luck involved and a lot of the strategy is similar to "He thinks that I think that he knows ...".
Pick this game if you enjoy bluffing and having lots of verbal interactions.
