There was a hush in the crowd and the plaza fell silent. Then with a raised finger they shouted "OFF WITH THIER HEAD!" ... the guillotine fell and another noble was claimed, this one however was worth -1 point.

"Damnit Barry!" said Carl.

The French Revolution is famous in part for the use of the guillotine to put nobles to death, and this is the macabre subject of this light card game.


As executioners pandering to the masses, the players are trying to behead the least popular nobles.

Each day the nobles are lined up and players take turns killing the ones at the front of the line until all the nobles are gone. However, players are given cards which will manipulate the line order right before 'harvesting', which is what makes the game interesting. After three days worth of chopping, the highest total points wins the game.
