Staff Pick

For those that qualify as both history nerds and gaming geeks, Guillotine is a perfect mix of both. I first fell in love with this game in middle school and still play it now as an adult. Easy to learn, this irreverent game brings out my rarely seen competitive side as every player strives to collect the most powerful noble heads during Robespierre's bloody Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Recommended pairings include champagne, cake, and the soundtrack to Les Mis.

Publisher Comments:

The revolutionary card game where you win by getting a head. This irreverent and humorous card game takes place during the French Revolution. Players represent rival guillotine operators vying for the best collection of noble heads over three rounds. Each round twelve nobles are lined up for the guillotine. The nobles are worth varying points depending on their notoriety. During your turn you play action cards to change the order of the line so you can collect the best nobles. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. Will you be skillful enough to bribe the guards to collect Marie Antoinette? Or will you lose points for beheading the Hero of the People? Heads are going to roll!

Who knew it was so much fun to chop off people's heads (and if you answered "I did!" then that's just wrong)?? You and other players are executioners at a guillotine during the French Revolution. You line up that day's victims (each round is one day and consists of 11 cards) and then play cards so that nobles whose heads are worth the most points get to the front of the line on your turn (e.g. - Marie Antionette is worth 5 points while a piss boy might be worth 1). At the end of three days, the players with the most points wins! Artwork is fun and, other than the overall theme and historical context, there is no sense of gore at any point.

A really fun card game. Not too complicated, but fun enough you don't get bored playing a few times in a row. In the "okay for kids, not boring for adults" range. I liked it a lot!
