Product Description

Discreetly fork over bribes to the powers that be--at least if they're handing out lucrative construction contracts. If your bribes are generous enough, your firm will get good contracts and its bottom line will swell. If your competitors' lucre shines brighter, though, you've lost opportunities, profits, and the satisfaction of knowing that some bureaucrat's Carribean tour on your dime was at least good for something. Designed by Bruno Faidutti (the mind behind Knightmare Chess), Corruption is a card game that combines the crafty deception of poker with the crooked milieu of the Gilded Age.

Excellent game, player colours hard to differentiate
February 03, 2004

One of my favourite short games, for 3-7 players. The rules are short and very clearly written, however it is difficult to distinguish between the player cards that are played face down. They are all a pastel shade of similar colours. If you have poor eyesight leave this one alone.

 
 
 
 
 
Quick, Fun, Fast, A Must Own
December 25, 2002

I love card games, I've played a lot. Here you play the Godfather of gangsters in a quick and simple game with plenty of bluffing, strategy, and pure luck. It's a must own and definitely fun for two or more players. The game design is straight forward and easy to pick up. Check out Titan: Arena, Grand Master, and Pestilence also, some of my other favorites. -JDM

 
 
 
 
 
Tense Decision Making
September 23, 2002

This is a nice little filler that requires some thinking. The mechanics are simple, the rules are easy to learn but there is just a truckload of difficult choices to make.

The cards are also very easy on the eye, as well as all nicely art deco themed.

I was not impressed with a bluff aspect of the game from the description, but it is more of a thinking game than a bluffing game. Good with a few people, with very little downtime. A game that will get a few plays.

 
 
 
 
 
Funny bidding game with interesting theme
January 02, 2002

The game theme of this game is quite interesting: you need to purchase some building by using corruption strategy. Each player have the same set of cards, but when a player plays an action card, it is discarded at the end of the turn, so if he uses all the action cards at the first three turns, he still have six cards to use at the last turn.

Play mechanism using bidding system, who bids the highest for a building gets the building. If tiles in the bidding, no one gets the building. Moreover, there is a place called bank. Cards putting there is not affected by action card, but it need to half the value of the card, so you need to decide whether to put your card into bank or not.

The game plays in four rounds. Each round players need to reveal some cards, and the others are put face-down until all players place their cards.

Some strategy is needed in this game, and it is not hard to leard this game. If you play this game for lots of times, you can change some rules of this game.

No one knows what you put out, so you don't know whether they put an action card or not until the end of a round.
