The Card Game of Discreet Bribery
You've got to spend money to make money.
In Corruption, you discreetly fork over bribes to the powers that be -- specifically, the powers that award lucrative construction contracts.
If your bribes are sufficient, your firm will get good contracts and its bottom line will swell. If your competitors' lucre shines brighter, though, you've lost opportunities, profits, and the satisfaction that some bureaucrat's Caribbean tour on your dime was at least good for something.
Corruption combines poker's crafty bluffing with the crooked milieu of the Gilded Age. This European card game design from French game creator Bruno Faidutti will tempt game players of all stripes.
3-7 players. 45 minutes playing time.
