Product Description

Life isn't fair... and neither is The Great Dalmuti! One round you're at the top of the heap, and the next you're peasant scum in this fast-paced card game of medieval one-upmanship. The players take their places in the pecking order, from Greater Peon to Greater Dalmuti, and try to get rid of the cards in their hands. Next round, everyone's roles could change because the faster you get rid of your cards, the higher you'll go. If you're unseated, you're really unseated: everyone moves around the table each round to take up their new positions. But don't get comfortable in the cushy chair of the Greater Dalmuti, because in a single hand even the lowliest Peon can boot you out the door. Sound unfair? Sure it is! But ah, the sweet taste of victory could make it all worthwhile....

My best memories stem from this game
April 15, 2006

It is kind of like the card game president, but much better. I remember when I was younger my family and I would play this for hours after dinner, or waiting for dinner, or chance we had. It is a great family game because younger children can play it...

I absolutely love it.

3th deck
March 29, 2004

This is indeed one of the best games around. I recently bought a new deck, because my first one is totally worn, as is one of my fellow gamers' decks. Thus this makes it the 3th deck we are going to use. See how long this will last!?

A definite must have!

By tradition, our closer
March 28, 2004

Every time we have a gaming night, we always close it with a few rounds of 'The Great Dalmuti'.

We would feel incomplete if we didn't. This is truly one of the greatest games around.

The giving of orders can be an optional rule. We usually don't take the giving of orders too far, so that it remains fun for everyone. A must-have!
