This game is perfect with over 5 people and I mean it. It's a quick light game that very easy to understand and that everyone I've played it with enjoyed. The game gets better when there is more player. We play it so there is always as much or a little less saboteurs than propsectors (3p-2s, 3p-3s, 4p-3s, etc.) and do not score points (who cares about points! the point is finding your allies and thwarting your ennemies!)

Scales well from 3 to 10 players.

Probably one of the best gateway games out there.

Fun tile laying game for up to 8 people. Love that theme and mechanics really work well together.

After more play I've found this to be an excellent game. With the right group this game can really shine. The cards played can often be interpreted both ways, help or hurt, lying or telling the truth. When two saboteurs can telegraph to each other early it makes for a really interesting round.

Nagyon kedvelem ezt a játékot!
Mi az utóbbi időben megpróbálunk mindig páratlan számú emberrel játszani és 5 főnél 2, 7 főnél 3, 9 főnél 4 szabotőrt alkalmazunk (magyarul mindig eggyel kevesebbet mint aranyásóból van). Így bár egy parányit egyszerűbb kitalálni ki a szabotőr és ki nem, de a szabotőröknek is mindig van esélyük győzelemre (pl. 5 játékosnál 4 az 1-ellen, vagy 7 játékosnál 5 a kettő ellen nagyon kevés a szabotőrök esélye).
Ha párosan vagyunk akkor alapból nem jó az elosztás hiszen pl. 6 játékosnál 3-3 szabotőr és aranyásó van, ami szinte garantálja utóbbiak sikerét, ha viszont 4 aranyásó és 2 szabotőr akkor az már az előbbieknek kedvez.

Elvesztem a részletekben, bocsi.
A lényeg hogy remek játék, főleg olyan társaságban ahol van több olyan aki szeret elméleteket gyártani és dumálni, csendes csapatnak nem nagyon (sőt egyáltalán nem) való.

Előnye még hogy 8 évesek is ugyanúgy tudnak játszani, és élvezni azt, bár sokszor belekavarnak, pl. letesznek egy lezárót mert elfelejtik, hogy el is lehet dobni. Persze ilyenkor mindenki azt hiszi, hogy ő a szabotőr és mindenkit megtéveszt, aztán a végén vannak nagy derülések, hogy mégis ki-kicsoda volt, szóval ha lehet gyerekekkel játszani, akkor ki ne hagyjátok!

Nekem NAGYON BEJÖN ez a party- felvezetőjáték!

Can any game get a group of people more animated? Suspicion, and "random" acts that fool everyone else... Saboteurs feuding and sabotaging one another, only to win when one reveals themselves to the miners who come to he aid of the other saboteur at a critical time...

Playing the alternative rules means that only miners with unbroken tools share the gold - which leads to the miners sabotaging one another, to the joy of the saboteurs!

Is this game a "filler", or the highlight of the evening?

Such fun - nice light gaming. Perfect as an intro or a winding down for a multiple gaming evening. Or just with pizza, beer and a lot of chat. Really good fun, laughing always accompanies this game.

Edit (Dec 2013) - this game just continually makes us laugh. A perfect piece of light gaming, several friends have bought this after a couple of plays - changing my rating to 10 after playing a 9 player session and laughing from start to finish.

This is one of three games I constantly have with me. It stays in my car because it has the ability to cure that empty space in any given night that begs to be filled with a fun boardgame. Its flexiblity with number of players, silly theme and player interaction make this a hit every time.

6.8.09 Update: This game continues to be the best filler or game night opener that I own. And it never fails to draw people in and wet their appetite for more gaming! Rating moves up.

3.12.10 Update: Played another rousing game with 10 players this time! Incredibly fun. Rating goes up again.

5.9.10 Update: Officially added to my overall Top 10.

1.7.14 Update: Played this for the first time in a long time, and man, it still rocks. Sitting around the table with 10 friends, hilariously accusing each other of sabotage, makes for great fun. I love this game!

This is a great game. You have to talk a lot to one another: try to make someone belief that it is not you but definetly someone else who is the saboteur. Give comments on every card that is played and you will like this game a lot!!

Great light party filler. It plays like a simplified SoCam and is a lot quicker. Scoring system is extremely random, so I don't play with it.

In this card game, players play gnomes digging in tunnels trying to reach the gold. However, hidden amongst the group are the saboteurs! Their goal is to stop the gnomes from getting the gold. An extremely fun game that has always been a big hit with all the people I’ve introduced it to. It's slightly dependent on your group as players must have good bluffing/negotiation skills and enjoy a little back-stabbing. This game gets a lot of table time with my groups and I've used it as a "gateway" to more complex fares. Highly recommended!

This is after two plays. I love this game! It was cute and fun, and very very social. My only complaint is that you have to place the entrance 7 card lengths away from the gold/coal cards and those one away from each other. It was a paint to set up and I would have liked some sort of grid to help with the set up.

Excellent little filler game, particularly if you have a pretty large group playing. I've had some absolutely cracking Saboteur players, who you'd never have guessed were the Saboteur until they stuck the knife in! Probably plays better with a higher number of players, as if you just have one saboteur, I think it's pretty hard for them to win.

I was first introduced to this at Shire Gamers, where we'd play with anywhere from 6 to 10 players... It is tons of fun, especially with a group of people who are up for a bit of table talk, accusing each other of being saboteurs.

I then introduced it to a few friends at work. It went down extremely well, but has a different feel in a much smaller group, as we can only play with at most 5.

Have since taught the game to virtually every group I play with, and it always goes down very well. It may only be a filler, but for the sheer enjoyment it is a solid 9 for me.

This game is a the best ice breaker/filler game I've played. It's easy to setup and you can explain everything within five minutes. The secret roles make the game interesting, and best of all it can handle up to 10 people.

I don't think this is the kind of game that you'd want to play over and over again (Bang! is probably better for that), but as a light filler game, with a very fast learning curve (which is lacking in Bang!) I think it's perfect and brings both gamers and non-gamers to the same table.

The family loves it. I'd like to try it with a group bigger than 4.

UPDATE - We played with six, and it was a blast! There was more tension, more deception, and more fum for everyone.

UPDATE - I've been playing more aggressively, and taking more risks to maximize my chances to 'get the gold' first. This has made the game more interesting.

My wife was a successful Saboteur. We never had this in a 3 player game since we started playing. The fun is back!

To me, this game is Bang!-lite. Although, it is difficult for people to understand that it is an Individual game with 3 rounds in which you are on a team. Gets a bonus for being a non elimination game.

Rules used:
A miner, whose tool is broken when the gold is found, receives no gold.

This is a seriously underrated game. I really, really like this game and so does the family and friends. A real rarity, able to scale between 3-10 players easily. Kind of a co-op/non-co-op game. Great theme that fist perfectly, dwarves digging for gold, and someone gets to be the saboteur. A fun little game with quite a bit of interaction. Highly recommended for parties.
