Coup is one of those few games that I would describe as the perfect micro-game.
Amusingly, this game hinges on one concept, is this person full of **** when it comes to their hand? Or are they telling the truth? Because ultimately players are either holding the card they say, or they don't, but how much are you willing to be on it? Granted, there are elements of deduction and currency to stop the game from hitting a stand-still but this isn't a game that overstays its welcome, it is just long enough and people are always keen to play it.
Let the finger pointing and accusations begin!
