The Victorian courtship card game of deduction, catfishing, and conceding power.

Players: 3-8Playtime: 60 minutes

This is an early access print and play version with place holder art!

Content Warning: This game presents marriage and independence as win/lose scenarios, and suggests relationships with unhealthy power dynamics.

While attending a party, you meet some suitors, full of potential wealth 💎, standing 👑, and passion 🌹. You’ve detailed your desires in your diary, and now you must discern who meets your needs by reading the trait cards they mail to you.

Your cards describe actions, but only the players you court will perform them. Each round, you share a card with a player, and they’ll choose which of your cards to leverage. When you find the one, send them your ring! They must reciprocate for you two to become engaged, so you must persuade them you’re compatible with their desires!

Print and Play

This print and play requires 12 sheets of paper: 3 for the rules, 1 for tokens and 8 for cards.  The backs of the cards are optional.

also when you are in the reception phase performing an action do you say the card action aloud ?

how much communication is allowed about traits?

You may discuss anything except for the exact symbols and number of symbols. So you could say that you have wealth to imply you have many diamonds.

In the reception phase, there is no requirement to state the action aloud, although dictating what you are doing can help the author of the card know which card action you leveraged.
