Description Edit | History

The French Revolution is famous in part for the use of the guillotine to put nobles to death, and this is the macabre subject of this light card game. As executioners pandering to the masses, the players are trying to behead the least popular nobles. Each day the nobles are lined up and players take turns killing the ones at the front of the line until all the nobles are gone. However, players are given cards which will manipulate the line order right before 'harvesting,' which is what makes the game interesting. After three days worth of chopping, the highest total carries the day.

0 Polska ściągawka z tłumaczeniem kart do Gilotyny
Nazw kart nie tłumaczyliśmy, bo wolimy wersję angielską, a to tłumaczenie zrobiliśmy pierwotnie dla graczy, którzy językiem tym nie władają, a z którymi wspólnie często grywamy. Wystarczy wydrukować 1 stronę. Kolejne dwie są dla tych, którzy wolą większe literki. Wspólnie z moją dziewczyną dołożyliśmy wszelkich starań, by wszystko było poprawnie. Gdybyś jednak znalazł jakiś błąd - daj mi znać:) Pozdrawiam.
