Coup: Reformation, an expansion for the original version of Coup, adds new cards to the game, rules for factions, and team play that increases tension in the early stages of the game. Who will survive the Reformation?
Driven by the successes, the resistance has gained popular support and entire regions are in open rebellion. In a desperate attempt to stay in control, some government leaders are publicly supporting the reforms demanded by the resistance. But allegiances are constantly shifting and can be bought for the right price. In Coup: Reformation, each player must declare himself either Loyalist or Resistance and can target only members of the other faction. Conversion is possible, however, for right price. Like all factions, once you have eliminated or converted the other group, you just descend into in-fighting, so there's still only one winner and no second place.
Coup: Reformation adds a new fluid team dynamic to Coup as players jostle with their allegiance to take advantage or seek protection in the early stages of the game. The opportunity for intrigue and bluff has never been greater. The cost of failure couldn’t be higher. Even with talk of reformation, only one can survive.
Coup: Reformation is not a standalone game and requires the base Coup game to play. Please note: this is not the Kickstarter edition and does not include the special Kickstarter promos.
Coup: Reformation is recommended for 2-10 players, ages 14 and up.
