TO WIN THE GAME, YOU HAVE TO BREAK THE RULES. You are the leader of one of the great Italian families. You have ambitions. You take what is yours when you can. Sometimes it’s best to follow along. Other times, you must be willing to do what’s wrong to get what you want.
Indulgence is a restoration of 1982’s Dragonmaster and 1966’s Coup d’État, a card game where you can follow the leader’s rules to avoid paying a penalty or try to undermine them for a big reward. This trick-taking game let the players revel in ambition.
