Jockeying for Position: Gameplay Basics
Cursed Court is a game of bidding and bluffing. Each player can access a different set of limited information (via shared cards and public cards) about who will wield influence in court each year.
Place bets on known influencers or bluff elsewhere in the hopes of pointing your opponents in the wrong direction. Outbid your opponents to win the favor of your chosen nobles.
But be careful! With only four wagering crowns to play and a limited number of coins to spend, your resources can stretch only so far.
Will you back the most influential nobles and win your place by their side? Find out in Cursed Court.
