Product Description

This board game masquerading as a card game is about a conflict between two factions, the Rose and the Eagle. In each turn, players attempt to change the allegiance of one land district, contributing power cards to swing the conflict in their favor. Players also choose roles such as Diplomat, Traitor, and Builder that give them special abilities for that turn. The most potentially devastating role is that of the Verräter, or Traitor, which allows the player to change allegiances just as the conflict begins. Points are awarded for winning over districts, for taking certain roles, and for building counting-houses.

Portable Board Game
May 09, 2005
This game gets 5 stars because of the value you get for the price. The game is fantastic, but at a normal board game price, I may have only given it 4 stars (which is still high for the way I rate games). The art is spectacular, the mechanics are novel (although borrowed by Bruno for Citadels), and the political ingrigue very cleverly balanced.

No better gaming bargain on the market
June 11, 2001

My friends and I have played this game many, many times. I cannot tell people enough what a great deal this game is for the money. Wonderful and difficult strategic and tactical choices. Some cooperation but also backstabbing galore. Bluffing is also needed in this game. And it plays as well (yet differently) with 3 or 4 players. When you're buying one of those big expensive boardgames, throw this one in the order and you won't be sorry.

Backstab your friends!!!!
February 10, 2000

What could be more fun than backstabbing some good buds? Verrater allows you to do this. What's more is unlike most deep strategy games, Verrater comes in a pocket-sized package! This is because it's a card game. It's so portable that I bring it to school every day for lunch!!! This game is a MUST BUY if you enjoy a bit o' strategy!!
