Venture forth and do battle with your foes while trying not to contract the plague at the same time in this fast-paced trick taking card game. PLAGUE combines elements from classic trick taking games like Spades and Black Maria and infuses rock-paper-scissors and a unique victory point scoring system that will have you both scratching your head and licking your lips.

The game takes place in the dark ages where three major kingdoms are at war. These kingdoms are based loosely on real ones from that time period. But the war is the least of their concerns as a perilous and relentless plague is speading across the world. Now the kingdoms are being wiped out from all sides.

It is the players job to protect their lands by protecting it in battle and by trying to keep the plague at bay.

This game comes with everything you will need to play a 2-4 player game. You supply the bodies, let PLAGUE supply the fun!
