Click Here Thanks Ron!
Shuffle the Deck.
The Deck is kept face down.
Each player is dealt a hand of 5 cards.
The player most closely related to Russian Nobility goes first.
Players take turns.
Each turn has 6 phases:
1. Fate Phase
2. Meld Phase
3. Foil Phase
4. Kill Phase
5. Event Phase
6. End Phase
Draw 1 card from the deck and put it in your hand.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.
If you have 2 or more of the same card in your hand you may make a Meld.
Place the Meld cards face-up in front of you.
For Example 2 Poison cards would be a Meld or 3 Palace cards would be a Meld.
You can only have 1 Meld of Method type cards in play.
You can only have 1 Meld of Conspiracy type cards in play.
You can only have 1 Meld of Location type cards in play.
If you later gain another card of a Meld you have in play, you may
Add it to the Meld in this Phase.
Any opponent may play (discard) a Save card.
A Save card causes the target indicated Meld to be discarded.
The Active player may play (discard) the Fate card to negate a Save card.
Any opponent may play (discard) a card that matches one of your Melds.
If they do so, they may put those meld cards into their hand.
If you have 3 Melds in play (1 each for Method, Conspiracy, and Location) you may
Roll 3 six-sided dice (This is called the Assassination Attempt).
If all 3 rolls are different numbers, you have killed Rasputin and win the game.
If 2 of the numbers match, you must discard 1 of your Melds of your choice.
If all 3 numbers match, you must discard all of your Melds.
Roll 1D6 if you did not play any cards in Meld Phase.
