Osprey Games Announces Let Them Eat Cake
March 9, 2016 - 8:03am
Osprey Games has announced a new, upcoming card game titled Let Them Eat Cake. The game is designed by award-winning designer Peer Sylvester and is for 3-6 players and is due out later this year at GenCon in August. The game features artwork by Lauren Dawson with a healthy injection of humour and should suit groups varying levels of skill and age. The game is pastry themed and set in 'France's Revolutionary Committee' and revolves around players deciding who will get Marie Antoinette's leftover cakes - as well as who to elect to positions of power and whose pawns will be sent to the guillotine! Duncan Molloy, Osprey’s Games Developer, said:
Peer Sylvester is one of my favourite game designers, and it is a real privilege to work with him again on this new project. Let Them Eat Cake is a game of forming alliances and hoarding pastries, where your ability to charm your friends is as useful as tactical card play. It is perfect for mixed ages and different levels of gaming experience. I am also thrilled that we got Lauren Dawson, who did such a beautiful job illustrating Secret Santa, to create all the artwork for this game. The sense of humour in her illustrations really brings the game to life.Joseph McCullough, Osprey Games’ Marketing Manager, was too busy stuffing his face with brioche and éclairs to comment.
