Sheriff of Nottingham: Merry Men Expansion
"It doth make a man better," quoth Robin Hood, "to bear of those noble men so long ago. When one doth list to such tales, his soul doth say, We are men in tights!?"
In this intruiging social deduction game players act as merchaints attempting to bluff, bribe or sneak their produce under the nose of the Sheriff of Nottingham.
The Merry Men expanssion builds on that idea by adding five modules:
Deputies: In six player games, you may use two Deputies instead of a single Sheriff. Here, both deputies must decide to search bags or let people pass, and they will share the punishments and rewards. If a deputy disagrees with the other and searches a bag, they will receive the punishment or reward by themselves.
Merry Men: Adds new illegal goods in the form of 'merry men' characters. If they are successfully smuggled in, players will reveal it and activate its special ability.
Black Market: Adds three sets of bonus cards that display illegal goods. The first player who successfully smuggles in the indicated goods receives the bonus cards and a large reward.
Laws: The Sheriffs must draw three law cards and choose two to keep. The chosen laws are in play for the entire round.
Special Orders: Special order cards indicate combinations of one legal and one illegal good. If players can smuggle both of those items in the same bag, they get that card, which provides them with bonus gold.
3-6 Players (best with 5)
