The Playful Guillotine

My latest obsession is a card game. No, not faro, this time it's Guillotine. Lauren, being of the french persuasion, discovered this game which puts you in place of the revolutionary French mob, deciding what nobles will be executed on that day. You collect points for each person sent to the guillotine; morbid, I know, but highly addicting. For certain people, such as Marie Antoinette, are worth more points than other lesser nobles. Whoever has acquired the most points at the end of three days, or rounds, of executions wins. Amazon has the game available to buy, and you'll soon discover no card party is complete without it!

I own this game and I agree. Best way to play: with Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette playing in the background...

We love this game! It's so much fun. We're going to play it with a real guillotine and veggies at our Bastille Day Picnic, hopefully!
