Coup Dystopian Universe (Indie Boards Cards) 930

Review for indie boards cards cou1ibc dystopian

Price was $7.39. I missed out on the kickstarter, but grabbed a couple copies of this game as soon as it was available on online store. It's tons of fun to play, even with only 2 players. Games are short (5-10 minutes). Compared to other fun, short games like love letter, there is more strategy. It also scales up well if you have more people. It's hard to find a bluffing game that works with less than 5 people (i'm looking at you,  the resistance and werewolf). . The product/manufacturer descriptions do not describe this game very well. There are 5 different cards (and 3 copies of each). Each one gives you a special ability within the game. You are dealt 2 cards for your hand. The goal is to force your opponents to turn over (discard) both of their cards. Each turn you can choose to draw money from the bank or take a special action. Actions include spending money to force an opponent to discard, stealing money from an opponent and taking extra money from the bank. Cards can also be used even when it's not your turn to block others from taking certain actions. However, since all cards are dealt face down, you are free to pretend you have *any* card and can take any action you want. If someone challenges you, you have to either show that you have the card you claimed or you are forced to turn over a card (discarding it). If someone challenges you and you were telling the truth, they are the one who has to discard. . If you were to exclusively play this game for a long time with the same group of people, it might start to get old. However, as part of a set of games you play on game night/lunch with coworkers/whatever, you could play this for years. Beginners can pick it up quickly and it slots nicely into small amounts of free time. . The game uses a non-standard card size (65x100mm). If you want to protect the cards from wear, you can use ultra pro special size card sleeves or the more expensive mayday games 7 wonders sleeves. The cards are fairly sturdy and durable though, and the game comes in a stiff box. I would consider sleeving the cards anyway, since any card that gets scratched or bent will essentially ruin the whole deck. The box includes a set of reference cards and cardboard coins to use for money. To make the game more portable, you could summarize the actions on a piece of paper and use pennies.

Preface

I bought this game to play while traveling with a group of 6 people. It is really hard to find a game that is compatible with 6 players and can travel well. While i think the ideal number is 3-4 players, this game worked out really well with the six. It also did not take up much space in my bag. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it isn't my favorite games genre; however, i have no regrets in buying it. . More details:. Just a quick overview of the game. It plays quickly - over in 15-20 minutes. It is a game mostly built around bluffing, calling bluffs, and eventually backstabbing (or not depending on how you play). Each player starts two character cards. You are out once you lose both cards. The last person standing wins. . The interesting aspect is that not only does each card type grant the player a special ability but that the cards are also flipped over. Since they are hidden from the other players, you can claim to use a power to which you don't have a right. Every turn a person has the right to challenge you. If you aren't using a ability granted by your cards, you lose a card. If the challenger is wrong, he loses a card. There are also other ways to attack and defend other players using a card's special ability. They seem pretty balanced. . Overall, it is a fast-paced game. You sort of get an idea how people like to play. Some bluff, some don't. You can also see some interesting natural alliances that form between people (one couple also supported each other, the other one did seemed to always attack each other). And because the games go quickly, you have a chance for revenge. . The gameplay is different with 6 players because the reserve deck is much smaller. Almost all the card types are out, and you can't switch out as well. So it makes it really hard to bluff and weakens some of the special abilities. It is still fun though Best Coup (The Dystopian Universe) as-of ( Oct 2019 ) | Indie Boards Cards-Toys And Games Review Attribute Coup (The Dystopian Universe) Ages 10 and up. For 2 to 6 players.

Coup The Dystopian Universe Review (IBCCOU1)

This card game will change your life. I first heard about this game when my cousin purchased this game from kickstarter and he played it with me. I was instantly hooked. For the next two years i put off getting this game until i saw it pop up as a deal of the day on online store and remembered how fun it was. I bought it and man was i not disappointed. I proceeded to play this fifteen minute game for 4 hours with my friends. Coup is a mix of poker and an intense strategy game. The whole game revolves around who can sell a bluff and outsmart their opponent. I strongly recommend this game to all looking to have a blast with friend and family or to challenge that pesky enemy of yours to the ultimate iq test. . If this helped you at all please hit the yes button below this review. It means a lot to me and i appreciate your support. Thanks! -T. Campbell

Fun game. Good pieces. I wish the coins were plastic instead of cardboard.

Coup Dystopian Universe (Toys And Games) Cou1ibc
Click to see NoticeCoup Dystopian Universe (Indie Boards Cards)"Coup: 2-6 players, ages 10+, average play time 15 minutes. . One might scoff at the fact that there s only fifteen cards in the entire game, making the content feel rather light. On the other hand, one could come to appreciate how the game mechanics tie everything together to give it its bang for the buck. I was admittedly skeptical at first $12 for fifteen cards and some plastic coins? what gives? once i actually looked at the rules however and saw just how many actions you could take per turn, i began to see the possibilities both in terms of strategy and bluffing. . I have a feeling that this game won t appeal to people who don t play a lot of poker, or any card game for that matter that encourages people to bluff when their back is against the wall. Coup works better when you have a lot of people playing, but it can and does function as a two player game just fine. My suggestion is that if you do end up playing with four or more players, that you secretly remove a card from the deck so as to prevent people from counting cards as they figure out who has who. . What appeals to me most is the quick play time, what with the recent changes that have come about in my household. Coup allows me to flex my brain without committing myself to an hour or two to some heavy abstract strategy game. It also tests my memory a bit, especially when my opponents use three different character actions in one round without exchanging cards which was the lie? do they know that i caught them? what actions have i taken again and didn t someone use the duke recently to block foreign aid? you see where this is going. Anywho, i found coup to be great as a filler or something to bring out at parties. My recommendation is to give it a spin!"


The Resistance The Dystopian Universe

The resistance is a very intense social deduction game for 5-10 players. While it shares similiarities with games like werewolf, mafia and even battlestar galactica it has many very unique features such as a quick 30 minute play time, no moderator required and no player elimination.

Coup Reformation expansion

Driven by their successes, the resistance has gained popular support and entire regions are in open rebellion. In a desperate attempt to stay in control, some government leaders are publicly supporting the reforms demanded by the resistance. But allegiances are constantly shifting, and can be bought for the right price. The opportunity for intrigue and bluff has never been greater. The cost of failure couldn't be higher. Even with the reformation, only one can survive.

Codenames

Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

Best coup dystopian universe (indie boards cards) in review

I was skeptical about this game because i hate games like resistance and avalon, where a few people have special abilities but everyone else has nothing to do except solve the puzzle. I can't express how much i hate these games. But my husband had read about coup and wanted to give it a try, and for the price (online store was having a board-game sale), i couldn't refuse. . The premise is simple and it's very easy to teach new players. Every player has a role (two, in fact), and those roles can change depending on what happens. You can fake being any role, which is the whole point: fake out your opponents so they don't know who you are. Play is fast and simple; you can get through a few games in an hour. Everyone i played this with loved it and had a good time. I have no complaints and highly recommend this as a party game and an alternative to any others who think resistance is meh!

F. Elizabeth, Midi-Pyrenees says

This game is a hit with everyone! great card game about bluffing and taking risks! i had to buy a second one after taking one to work (i work with teens) and the kids wouldn't let me take the game back home. They loved the strategy of lying to win. This game is fast paced and easy to learn. Would definitely recommend!

Y. Mable, Shropshire

If you're looking for a fun 2-6p (need to accomodate more than that - get more copies of the game or just add marked regular playing cards to it in sets) party game look no further! this game is the perfect warmup/warm-down game for family gatherings or casual hangouts. It is extremely easy to pick up and yet holds a surprisingly large amount of strategy. It's easy to learn, hard to master. . The box is tiny so it's portable and travels easily! the components of the game all fit into the box perfectly. Speaking of the components they are the cards, summary sheets, instructions booklet and tokens. . The card art is perfect and suits the game - definitely admirable even after hours of play. The tokens could've been better but do their job and are sturdy. . Summary: if you want to play a quick game that requires deduction and deception - this is your game. I can only say that playing with quiet/timid people will be slightly frustrating (if they don't talk much) but aside from that - it flows regardless.

N. Dorine, Medway says

Great game with lots of replay value. We spent 2 hours playing it one night. It's really easy to learn and teach, which makes it less of a drag for new players.

O. Meredith, Windsor and Maidenhead

We love it! the instructions were a little confusing. We finally just started playing with the example at the end of the instructions and quickly got the hang of it. This is a great game when you want to play something, but don't have a lot of time.

J. Wells, South Dakota says

Coup is a crowd-pleaser, there's no denying. This quick, little card game handles 2 to 6 players and can be played in fifteen minutes or less, making it a great addition to game nights. It is best played with five to six playes and it's fairly easy to pick up. It also comes with six handy reference cards to make learning the game even easier. . The object of the game is to bluff your way to victory. In a far-flung future where the majority of the population is poor and oppressed, only a select few wield power and wealth. You will draw two cards which you will keep secret from your opponents and you will either use their actions or claim you have other cards instead so you can use their actions. The catch? if someone else challenges you and you can't show you have the character to justify the action you just took, you lose influence. If you do have the applicable character, the person challenging loses an influence. Losing an influence is defined as you turning over one of your cards face up, thus losing access to one action. If you lose all your influence, meaning both your cards are face up, you're exiled and you lose. Be the last man standing to win. . The game consists of 15 character/action cards and a bag of money tokens, as well as the six reference cards cited earlier, making it simple to cart around. Coup was a big hit at my game night, with people liking it a lot or flat-out loving it. It's a great way to practice your poker face, because you'll need a good one to win.

A. Laura, West Sussex

One of my favorite games, fast and fun to play with 3 to 6 people. The game is even fun with only 2 people.

X. Noguera, Saskatchewan says

Great game with high replay value. Friends always enjoy playing it. Interactive enough that the "most experienced" players will not always win. New players catch on within a round. Rounds last 5-10min, so players are not sitting idle when they're out for more than 5min. . Can be played by non-gamers and strategy gamers alike. Has worked fine at parties and with beverages involved. . Total game contents are less than you might expect. There's a bag of cardboard coins, a few rule reference sheets, a small instruction book, and 15 playing cards. That's all and there's quite a bit of empty space in the game box (which is fine, just be prepared). . Recommend picking up when it goes on sale.

Q. Glenda, Cumbria

Perfect, thanks!

S. Cageen, Peterborough says

I don't really grade games on artwork or durability. I just care about the game play, and this game is incredibly fun. I first played with three people and we laughed super hard while playing. It's a bluffing game, but you aren't actually betting, like in poker, so it's just pure fun and doesn't feel competitive. I've also played a bunch of two-player games and enjoyed that, too. I love the fact that a hand is so quick ( 5 minutes), so it's not a big commitment to start playing. You can just stop whenever. . When first learning, it may seem like there are a lot of rules, but after one evening it is easy to internalize them. Anyway, the game has a bunch of summary cards to hand out to players, and the cards themselves say what they can do. What makes the game so fun is that the cards have such incomparable powers, yet in the end it's pretty well balanced-whatever cards you start with can be a winning hand if you play it right, bluff at the right time, and aren't too unlucky about what the other player has. You can lie flagrantly and often get away with it, but when a ridiculous bluff is uncovered, it invariably cracks everybody up. Again, because no money is at stake and you typically play a bunch of independent hands in an evening without keeping score, it's just super light-hearted fun. . My friends and i now sometimes play coup with a regular deck of cards, too, just using 10, j, q, k, a of three suits for our 15 cards, so you don't really *need* the official game. But you should support the brilliant people who designed this game by buying the very reasonably priced original version. Plus with the official version you'll get to enjoy the playing cards that say what they do and the summary cards that help you learn the game and the special coup coins that feel more appropriate than poker chips.

D. Neva, Georgia

A great game whose dynamics change with every player. Easy to learn and fast to play, coup is a great game for parties and game nights.

J. Cindy, Bedfordshire says

This game took just a few minutes to learn and figure out. We watched an online video. After that we had our bluffing faces on, and it's been deception ever since. Great game!

Really fun game! gets so interesting. I don't know how it happened, but i played this for almost 5 hours with some friends (many, many rounds). And not once did anyone suggest playing a different game. We all just had a blast.
