This copy of this game has a little bit of shelf wear on the corners of the cardboard box. It is otherwise in brand new condition!
In the Queen’s service, the Musketeers are trying to acquire three valuable gems. However, the Cardinal and his dreaded Guards are out to sabotage the Musketeers’ mission. Many skirmishes between the Musketeers and the Guards ensue. The most successful Musketeers will be awarded gems. Those who fail will be sent to prison and will remain empty handed.
The game is played to 100 points, with victory going to an individual player.
Easy-to-learn rules and short playing times make for great entertainment in this fast paced semi-cooperative, yet also very competitive, card game. En Garde!
I personally really like this game and find it to be thematic and fun. I like how you are working together against the guards; however, as the cards flip over, it becomes cut throat between the players. Over the course of a few games, players begin squirming to find strategies to outsmart their fellow Musketeers! Quick! Easy! Fun!
“The cards you are dealt, have nothing to do with whether you will win or not. I had the worst cards for 4 of 5 hands, but I won anyway! Fans of "Liars Dice" will love this game. I like this game a lot.”

“Offbeat, fast and interesting. Unusual blind-bidding with some nice twists, including a cooperative element set against individual scoring. All for one and one for all!”
