Galactic Scoundrels is a game of space-western mayhem for 3-5 players that features gambling, lying, cheating, and lowdown dirty dealing. Plus it's in space.
The game is played in a series of rounds. In each round, the players gamble to win a job, one player takes that job, then the other players play cards to stop them from finishing it. Along the way, they also try to bleed as much money from them as possible. After all, what are friends for?
Jobs consist of a series of events, described on cards, which the player on the job must resolve with their ship, its contents, the cards in their hand, and whatever is in their stash. Along the way, all the players tell the tale of the adventure, describing how each card advances the scoundrel's story. Galactic Scoundrels is, more than anything, a storytelling game.
