Play involves a combination of card playing and adventuring. You steadily cheat your way to the top of 18th-century French society. To do so means you need to master a range of deceptions with card marking, false shuffles, deck switching and false deals. This grants you money to buy your way into the closed world of high-stakes tables.
As you work your angle you discover other suspicious mysteries to solve. From small towns, remote mansions to luxurious lounges, you immerse yourself in the ornate world of 18th century high society. To get to the bottom (or top) of things you'll need cunning, intrigue and deceit.
But care is needed as you encounter politicians, petty thieves, mystics, and scammers. When is it okay to break rules and how much is too much? It's a game where you’ll need to play your opponents better than you play your cards.
