Guillotine - The revolutionary card game where you win by getting a head.
The irreverent and humorous card game Guillotine 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 and collect Marie Antoinette? Or will you lose points for beheading the Hero of the People?
Heads are going to roll!
