A downloadable game
One of a series of free original card games being released in conjunction with live event The Shield & Torch, all conceived as original card games typically played in the low-fantasy tavern. More information about The Shield & Torch is available here.
A short and sweet game for two players, Scoundrel's Gambit is a game of bluff and bluster. Each player competes to be the 'True Scoundrel' by ending up with no hearts at the end of the game - something that can only be done by making sure the other player takes your heart, whilst avoiding making the same mistake yourself.
The file also outlines some variations of the game from different regions of the fictional world Alongame, from alternative ways of setting up the dilemma to different fictions and customary phrases that go along with the game.
