In 2012 Rikki Tahta took the gaming world by storm with the release of Coup, a game of secret identities, bluffing and deduction. In the years since, Coup has been become a fan favorite and a best seller for publishers around the world. Many of the languages in which Coup has been published have used different artwork, inspired by a diverse set of local artistic culture.
Indie Boards and Cards is very excited to work with artist Weberson Santiago and publisher Funbox to release an English language edition featuring the fantastic artwork from the Brazilian version. This limited release includes the Allegiance and Inquisitor mechanics from the Reformation expansion in a single box that we call the Coup Deluxe Edition - Brazil Art.
In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area.
Each player starts the game with two coins and two influence – i.e., two face-down character cards; the fifteen card deck consists of three copies of five different characters, each with a unique set of powers. Players take turns taking various actions with the goal to reduce all of his or her opponents to 0 influence. The last player to still have influence – that is, a face-down character – wins the game!
Its expansion, Coup: Reformation, adds new cards to the game and rules for factions and team play that increases tension.
Each player must declare himself either a Loyalist or a Resistant and can target only members of the other faction. Conversion is possible for yourself or for another player by paying a charitable donation to the Treasury. Like all factions, once you have eliminated or converted the other group, you just descend into in-fighting, so there's still only one winner and no second place.
