Sheriff of Nottingham

Sheriff of Nottingham tiptoes on the border between a party game and something more, but does so in an elegant way filled with bluffing, bribery and black market goods!

This is done in a fun card game that rotates the sheriff’s role around, boasting a party game’s quickness and an element of strategy to boot! There’s nothing we’d recommend more for someone who is not originally into party games but is willing to try some.
