Staff Review: COUP

Board Game: Coup

Review by Josh

A perfect game of social deception, great for a wide range of players with endless replay ability. Every turn you make a single action, either one you can make based on the cards you have, or you can lie and take an action you don’t have the card for. Lying and deception is at the heart of this game so those with a good poker face are sure to love it. I’ve played this game with countless groups for 5+ years now and it never gets old. Taking only 30 seconds to set up, a few minutes to explain and rounds lasting 5-10 minutes, it’s ideal for showing to friends and bringing out for a quick game. And if you want to play with a larger group, you can get the extension pack that includes a new card and more of the pre-existing cards. Complexity 1/5
