TAROT: A Game of Souls
Battle your opponents in a game of skill and luck to see who can claim the most souls for KERES, the goddess of Death.
This card game is based on Coup d'Etat, first played within the dungeons of France over two centuries ago!
Since the dawn of time, KERES and DEATH have battled each other over the souls of evil mortals. Keres, the Goddess of Death, has promised great power to the Soul Hunter who brings her the most mortal souls. But Death, the Grim Reaper, has his own plans on winning this ages old battle. The penalty for defying him is to join the souls he claims.
Will you succeed in bringing Keres the souls she desires and be elevated to her court? Or will your soul be taken by Death and be doomed to serve his whims for all eternity? The Game of Souls will decide your fate.
How to Play
TAROT a Game of Souls is a competitive, trick taking game. Winning a hand is called “Taking a Trick”. Each player takes turns in the role of Soul Hunter for a round between five and seven hands long.
There are five different hands that can be played in each round in the Basic game. Each hand has a different objective, and each hand is played only once in a round. Each hand’s objective has a soul value and players win or lose souls from their opponents depending on how well they play the hand. During the round, the Soul Hunter attempts to win souls from the other players.
Once played, the token next to that hand is removed from the Soul Hunters board and only those hands with tokens remaining may be played. Each of these hands will be played once to complete a full round.
The winner is the player who has collected the most souls at the end of the game.
