The Snakescast: Game Spotlight: Coup


A closer look at our new favourite microgame

There's been a fashion lately for so-called "microgames". These are games that have very few components. A small box, a few cards (less than 20), maybe some tokens, and that's it. The latest to earn the affections of the gurus at Snakes and Lattes is Coup, by Rikki Tahta. It's a bluffing game with very sharp teeth. Have a listen, and find out if it's something you'd like to try on your next visit.
