In the game of Rasputin, players take the roles of assassins tasked with infiltrating the Winter Palace and killing history's most unkillable man - Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin. While all players share the same target, this is not a cooperative game and your opponents will prove to be an even greater threat than Rasputin’s personal guards.
Each player starts with a matching deck of fifty cards from which he must chose the twenty-five cards he will use in the game. Your cards determine which abilities you have available to you at any given moment, as well as your strength in individual combat against Rasputin and other players. Success in the game relies on your ability to balance the cards in your hand versus the board positions of yourself, your opponents, the guards and Rasputin.
