Surplus of Popes
Surplus of Popes is a card game in which everyone is trying to prove they had the best tenure as Pope.
Each player has four cards in their hand. Each turn you draw a card and then play a card. Then you just follow the rules written on the cards themselves.The winner is decided by whoever has the highest PRIDE score.
PRIDE : Something great you did.
SHAME : Something you would not want to admit you did.
FLIP : Once you play this card you flip a coin and you risk getting either PRIDE or SHAME points from it.
EVENT : They can steal, copy, or remove cards, as well as either enhance or detract their Point value.
Be sure to read the cards closely, because a few of them have special bonus acts you can do to earn extra points (for example, making beverages for everyone, or creating a cool new dance!) But what's a game without a bit of healthy competition?
