Questions tagged [saboteur-2]

Saboteur 2 is an expansion for Saboteur by Frederic Moyersoen, which first appeared in 2004 from Amigo Spiel. Each player takes on the role of a gold-digging dwarf or a saboteur who wants to hinder exploration of the gold mines -- but each player knows only his own role, so the digging may or may not go as planned! The original Saboteur allowed 3-10 players, while Saboteur 2 handles 2-12 players.
