Product Description

This card game is a black-humored view of the French Revolution. The players operate the Guillotine and want to behead the most important nobles. Since Marie Antoinette gives a player more points than a usual count, the players' action cards can change the order in which the nobles go to the Guillotine, to change who gets which points.

If you lead the other players by a head, you win!

Nothing wrong with this game. In the many, many times we've played the game we have found no "house rules" that have ever stuck. The game is developed extremely well, that art and text humor is fantastic and the concept is just cheeky. Grab a copy and start decapitating.
Great light game for gamers and non gamers

As I said and so many others, this is a great light game that has mass appeal. I have used this game several times as a fantastic filler while a group wait for others to arrive for a bigger game. It has also served as a wonderful game for youth groups. Kids and adults can pick it up in no time and be off having fun (and with the heads). It is also a nice and rather 'thinking' game with just two players. The more players the more luck (but the more banter and fun). Keep chopping them heads. Now only if they would come up with a Bush administration version!

Fantastic Game

Once my husband & I introduced our friends to this game, when they invite us around for dinner all they want us to bring is Guillotine. They Love the game. We have just taught our 7yr old nephew and he caught on so quickly. It is a game for children & adults!!!
