Intrigue is a pure negotiation game that pits the players as Renaissance era notables wanting to enrich themselves by sending advisers to opposite countries. The kicker is, everyone is competing for the same spot and unfortunately, there may not be enough room for everyone.
It’s up to you to find the necessary means: promises, bribes, blackmail, to place you in the best locations of the enemy castles to be more productive and more lucrative. However, once accepting a bribe, the ‘bought’ player is under absolutely no obligation to honor the highest briber or any other verbal deal and of course, no promise has to be kept! After 5 rounds of play, the player with the most money wins the game.
