Product Description

A card management, set collection, role playing game for 3-5 players set in the bustling medieval city of Nottingham.

Prince John is coming to Nottingham! Players, in the role of merchants, see this as an opportunity to make quick profits by selling goods in the bustling city during the Prince’s visit. However, players must first get their goods through the city gate, which is under the watch of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Should you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit, or risk it all by sneaking in illicit goods? Be mindful, though, as the Sheriff always has his eyes out for liars and tricksters and if he catches one, he very well may confiscate those goods for himself!

In Sheriff of Nottingham, players will not only be able to experience Nottingham as a merchant of the city, but each turn one player will step into the shoes of the Sheriff himself. Players declare goods they wish to bring into the city, goods that are secretly stored in their burlap sack. The Sheriff must then determine who gets into the city with their goods, who gets inspected, and who may have their goods confiscated!

Do you have what it takes to be seen as an honest merchant? Will you make a deal with the Sheriff to let you in? Or will you persuade the Sheriff to target another player while you quietly slip by the gate? Declare your goods, negotiate deals, and be on the lookout for the Sheriff of Nottingham!

Sheriff of Nottingham is the first game in the Dice Tower Essentials Line from Arcane Wonders.

    In this game, players take turns being a merchant and Sheriff of Nottingham. As a merchant, the aim is convincing the sheriff, “I have five apples in my bag. Nothing else, definitely no cider, crossbows or gouda cheese”. As the Sheriff, you need to look that merchant in the eyeballs and decide whether they are simply trying to make sure there are enough apples for the yearly village apple pie festival, or a dirty contraband smuggler and peddler of lies! Perhaps a little gold would help to overlook a suspicious sack, maybe not. Players that thrive on lying and role-playing will have a ball with this game, “I’m a vegan baker! I’m not importing chickens?!” The game is simple to learn, easy to teach, and packed with a lot of laughs and table thumping. If you’re looking for something light and fun and you’re a sucker for bluffing games, get this one. It’s a goodie.
