Coup – Tutorial and Common Mistakes

December 29, 2014 (Board Games)

We’ve recently had the board game Coup flying off the shelves so we looked for content that might help you get the most out of your game. We also have a demo copy in our store if you’re interested in trying it out. Hopefully this helps in running your games more smoothly!

Want someone explaining the rules to you rather than reading it? Try this tutorial/review video. The rules start at 1:07 while the author’s comments begin at 4:00.

Common rules clarifications:

* If you Assassinate someone > someone challenges you > you do not reveal an Assassin (and thus lose an influence), you get to take your three coins back.

* If you are being Assassinated > you challenge that she has an Assassin > she reveals an Assassin, you proceed to lose your influence. However, you can still claim to have a Contessa to block the assassination should you have an influence remaining. Losing the challenge does not mean you automatically lose both influence!

* If you use the Ambassador’s Exchange action, you take two cards from the Court Deck and then decide which two cards you wish to put back. You do this even if you only have one influence left.

* If you block the Extortion action, you must claim which character you are using to block the action with.

* If you challenge someone using the Extortion action against you and lose your last influence because of that challenge, they still get to steal two coins from you. Afterwards you move all your coins back to the Treasury.

Players Wanted Supports Killarney Secondary School Gaming Club

December 10, 2014 (PW Updates)

As a company whose mission is to bring together and celebrate gamers of all sorts, we were happy to help one of our regular community members, Matteo, start a gaming club at Killarney Secondary School! We’re proud of his initiative in sharing his love of gaming to many other students and have supported it by donating to his club a deck building board game, some Magic: The Gathering decks, and lending an XBox 360 console!

We’ll be continually cheering the club on and wish it even more success! You can check out an article on the club on the VSB website.
