Product Description

Conflict in the uplands! Two competing royal houses, Eagle and Rose, are trying to sieze as much land for themselves as possible. To gain the most winning points, the players play now for one, now for the other house. It is then by no means unusual for for a Traitor to turn coat in the midst of a conflict. Another player meanwhile tries his hand as a Builder of estates and offices or acts as a Diplomat to save what can hopefully still be saved. As a Farmer, a player is already laying supplies for the next conflict being thoroughly planned by the Strategist.

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

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!!!!

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!!
