I recently purchased 2 sets of Coup: The Resistance So that I could play with more than 6 people. However, The included rules don't state how many of each card to use when dealing with more than 6 players.

I know the developers intended for more than 6 players to be able to play with additional cards but I can't find the recommended numbers anywhere.

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/148931/coup-reformation is the expansion for more than 6 players.

It contains 15 cards; 3 of each rather than 2 of each. I think the rules from the game say how many cards to use for how many players, since someone quotes it as 25(5 of each) cards for 9-10 players. Since you use 15(3 of each) cards for 6 players, I'm guessing you add 1 of each card for 7-8, 2 for 9-10 and 3 for 11-12.

The rules for reformation are slightly different, as it has 2 factions where you can take an action and 1 money to the almshouse to change your faction; 2 money to change someone else's faction; or take all the money from the almshouse if you do NOT have a Duke.

You are only allowed to attack people of the opposite faction to you, unless everyone is the same faction where you can attack whoever you want.

What contains 15 cards? The base game is 5x3=15. –  The Chaz 2.0 Jun 11 at 1:29
