Guillotine (2-5 players, 30 minutes) is a lighthearted game based on The Terror of the French Revolution. Players fill the role of rival executioners, competing to collect the heads of the most prestigious among the nobles and bourgeoisie.
Played in 3 rounds, the players are presented with a common line of nobility awaiting execution. The point value of each noble varies and some have special abilities. Players use cards in their hand to modify the line (or the play) to attempt to maximize the total score of the nobles whose heads they collect.
