Talk Nerdy to Me: How to Play Sheriff of Nottingham
Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play Sheriff of Nottingham. This is a game for 3-5 players. A typical game will take approximately 60 minutes to play. It is a very easy game to learn.
Prince John is coming to Nottingham! Players, in the role of merchants, see this as an opportunity to make quick profits by selling goods in the bustling city during the Prince’s visit.
Players must first get their goods through the city gate. The gate is under the watch of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Should you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit or risk it all by sneaking in contraband? If the Sheriff catches you with contraband in your bag he will confiscate those goods for himself.
In Sheriff of Nottingham players will take turns being the Sheriff. Players declare goods they wish to bring into the city. These goods are secretly stored in their burlap sack. The Sheriff then determines who gets into the city with their goods and who gets inspected.
Do you have what it takes to be seen as an honest merchant? Will you make a deal with the Sheriff to let you in? Or will you persuade the Sheriff to target another player while you quietly slip by the gate? Declare your goods, negotiate deals, and be on the lookout for the Sheriff of Nottingham.
