February 20, 2017 Reply Montage Monster Can't believe you have never reviewed this before! One of the favourites at my club February 20, 2017 Reply Emanuel de Matos Coup: Rebelion G54 has many more roles than the basic Coup game allowing greater game variability. We love this game, but after playing it so often, it is only really fun if there are 5 or more players… Great instructional video — I was wondering if you would cover the double influence loss following a lost assassination challenge. Cudos! February 20, 2017 Reply Charles Fox really hope we get a playthroughs of the game February 20, 2017 Reply phyphor You don't lose the money if you attempted an assassination without an assassin? That changes things a lot. February 20, 2017 Reply Stijn Hommes At around 9:00 you claim that only the targetted player can claim to be the captain to block your stealing action. That is not true. Any player can block your steal action (if they so choose). February 20, 2017 Reply hereticdave Such a great game – glad you were able to get it on the show! I'll be sending this to new folks ahead of time! February 20, 2017 Reply Brandon Marlow Is there a rules clarification about assassinations and coups regarding if the active player or the target player chooses which card is assassinated? My copy is unclear, but it is a few years old. We always play that the active player chooses the card, making the coup potentially more devastating, since the target player cannot choose which card is more opportune to reveal. February 20, 2017 Reply Tony Simpkins Thanks for the video. Can you do a follow up for coup: reformation and coup:rebellion? February 20, 2017 Reply Joe My friends love coup. It's really fun when you turn it into a drinking game. Along with your 2 cards you also get 2 shots of whatever you want. (Personally I do kamikaze) When you lose a card you take a shot. And winner can give his remaining to whoever he wants. Makes for a fun couple of games February 21, 2017 Reply Lugo428 I swear, you guys are freaking mindreaders because I was just about to look this up. February 21, 2017 Reply TheKiltedKraut This game has been around quite a long time…why did you choose now to do a "Watch it Played" video?!? Slow month? Just curious because I can think of SO many other games that need game play rules explained and Coup isn't even in the top 100. February 21, 2017 Reply bob3002 Hey Rodney, love your show and love this game. The thumbnail tricked me into thinking there was a new red-box edition! Fooled by the foil and your red table. February 21, 2017 Reply Anthony Checkas Great work, as always. First youtube site I recommend to new players, invaluable resource. Just need to clone you and Pep so that all games can have a video. 🙂 February 22, 2017 Reply Mark Allen There was a fair amount of time showing strategies and how different scenarios might play out, is this a new format for the videos? February 22, 2017 Reply Dave R That "Captain Steal" Scenario is really odd – I understand the situation, but I don't see why someone who was not the target of the "Steal" would challenge the person claiming Captain. Seems like an unnecessary risk. February 22, 2017 Reply Leon Allen This is a great game and quick so especially good at the start of a games evening to get things going. February 22, 2017 Reply patamonsvk could you do a video on how to play Warhammer Quest card game?I consider myself an advanced board gamer , but those rules man. are really confusing. March 1, 2017 Reply Akoltin So challenging an assassination attempt is double or nothing? March 7, 2017 Reply Brenden Lujan Hey, Rodney, love the videos! I have a request if at all plausible. would you be able to do a "How to play" of the game Betrayal at the House on the Hill?? Thanks! March 10, 2017 Reply Adam Hadi thanks m8 May 1, 2017 Reply Danial Azman Hi, I am confused a bit about the Ambassador. Could the player look at the 2 cards drawn from the court before the exchange? or is it a blind exchange? Thank you for making these videos, I'm starting to get into tabletop games. May 6, 2017 Reply Red_Swindler Hi Rodney, big fan!I have a two questions I'd like to ask: 1.) Can a challenge be issued via claim as well? Like for example: If someone claims Captain against me, could I challenge that claim by claiming I have Ambassador for blocking? 2.) Does an opponent have an opportunity to take back his claim? Referring to the previous example, can the player using the Captain against me, take back his claim in response to the issued challenge? July 23, 2017 Reply Mindgame261 Well done, thx! July 28, 2017 Reply J Browne I believe your captain example is incorrect. I think after the right player challenges you, your captain would go back in the deck and you would draw a new influence. Then you would choose from your two cards which to sacrifice when your block challenge was lost.

November 7, 2017 Reply Prakash Manet Great explanation thanks January 6, 2018 Reply Yuk Warit I've played it many times but 11:46 is new to me. Thanks! January 10, 2018 Reply Darshana Sripathi oh wow, you are really good! February 25, 2018 Reply Patrick Choo This is a psycho/bluffing/couping your friends game. It's nice to bluffs hahaha March 27, 2018 Reply Gaston Yamauchi Hey man! Great video, you are really clear with your explanations and as a English student I must say that you are also didactic. I'm going to play Coup for the very first time with teacher tonight and thanks to you I will take him by surprise! Greetings from Argentina! March 29, 2018 Reply conorleyden Hi. First great video! I've heard people mention the following rule and I'd like your take on it. Imagine you attempt to assassinate me. I can call you out on not having an assassin. If you have one you show it to me. I can then state that I have a contessa. To me this seems overpowered, and I should pick one or the other (or accept the assassination of course). What are your thoughts? May 8, 2018 Reply MrNiC0S just bought the game cant wait to play it! May 14, 2018 Reply Alena Hussain Cool👍🏼 May 27, 2018 Reply Jolexander Joravlev Hello Rodney! I'm sorry for my English, because I'm from Russia. I'd like to ask you a few questions. 1) First about it: "At 8:44, after being challenged and proving that they have a role, the challenged player would right away replace their revealed card with one from the court, before continuing with resolving their ability (in this case, the Captains)." In that case could I use another abilities several times per turn? I'm talking about a situation where they don't believe me all the time and lost their influence. I hope I made it clear. 2) In a situation where the player lost the challenge, he has to reveal one of his cards. Who have to flip one of his cards If I successfully assassinate him? Is it him or I am randomly picking one of his cards? Thanks in advance for your reply. You're doing great! June 2, 2018 Reply Brown Poppadom Player X has an assassinPlayer Y does not have a Contessa but still blocks.Player X challenges and Player Y loses the challenge. Does Player Y lose both cards? Also what if in the same scenario Player X does not have an Assassin. How would that play out? July 14, 2018 Reply Kyouma Hououin hi i'm a bit confused about whether you can or cannot keep those coins after a successful or unsuccessful challenge. here are three example scenarios:1/player X claims to have a Duke and tries to take 3 coins. but player Y challenges him, and player X doesn't have a Duke when revealing. player X lose one card. but what happens to those 3 coins? will he still keep it? and what if player X actually has a Duke?2/ player X chooses to take foreign aid. player Y claims to have a Duke and stops him, but player X challenges. upon revealing shows that player Y has no Dukes, then what happens to those 2 coins? what if player Y actually has a Duke?3/ player X claims to have a Captian and tries to steal player Y's 2 coins. player Y claims to have a Captian and tries to stop him. player X challenges, and after that shows that player Y has no Captians. what happens to those 2 coins? and what if player Y actually has a captian? please explain these for me. thanks a lot July 18, 2018 Reply Lohit Nambiar Love this game August 3, 2018 Reply Matthew Takatsch A small problem we've come across while playing this game is when a player is down to one influence and is being assassinated. In this case, the player should call out the person claiming to have the assassin no matter what because they have nothing to lose. If they challenge and they're wrong, they're out. If they don't challenge, they're dead. Any way around this? August 6, 2018 Reply ShiverBolt So you can only block an action that is directed towards yourself? If someone was trying to steal from someone else could I block that for them or would they have to do it themselves? August 13, 2018 Reply Ralph T Coup Question?What happen when? Ex: Player 1 steal from player 2. Player 3 challenge player 1 steal. Player 1 won the challenge exchange to a new cards. Does he steal get to steal 2 coins? Also another.It is say that you are able to loose 2 cards.What happen when? Ex: player 1 claims an assassin cards. He assassinate player 2. Player 2 has a contessa but still wants to challenge the assassination. Does he still looses both cards even with contessa in his hand? August 22, 2018 Reply ano0s-1995 If I block someone from steeling from me, should I say what is my character “Captain or ambassador? Or “I block you” enough? September 4, 2018 Reply Mithun Nathan A quick note you can challenge an assasinate and the other player could have the assasinate and you could have a contessa to block his assasinate on. Normally you would just block with contessa in the first place but I decide to challenge everhough I was pretty sure he had assasinate and claimed contessa as my last card to make it seem like a desperate attempt to not lose and won the game September 16, 2018 Reply David fg Problem while playing: player 1 has 1 influence, player 2 claims to have the assasin, pays 3 coins and targets player 1, player 1 challenges, player 2 has the assasin so player 1 looses his last influence by challenge, what happens to the 3 coins paid by player 2?? Did the action took place or do player 2 still has an action to take since he didn't actually killed player 1? November 21, 2018 Reply Wrany Southard sounds like rock paper scissors played in a dark closet December 18, 2018 Reply TheGamer245 I know this is late but what happens if I only have one influence left but I claim to be the ambassador. Would I switch out one card to get another one or is the card useless now? December 24, 2018 Reply TheGamer245 I have a question. Let’s say person A wants to assassinate Person B, but person C is a contesta. Can person C block the assassinate even though it’s not happening to them? To protect person B or no? December 25, 2018 Reply Joevanie Sanchez Sorry this might be too late to ask.. but can someone pretend to have an ambassador to exchange a card or you need to show that you have the ambassador to before you can exchange card? And can someone challenge you when exchanging cards? Thank ypu.. 🙂 December 26, 2018 Reply Homero Simpson I love this game, and the expansion! On New Year's Eve my cousins and I played it, there was 9 of us playing and the game lasted for over 15 minutes! January 12, 2019 Reply Robert Osswald Great, I was looking for a simple game similar to Love Letter, which can be completed in a short time and doesn't take too much time to explain, while it could be played with 5 players (ass opposed to LL which is limited to 4), and Coup fits right in.

August 10, 2019 Reply Mark Angelo Flores Sir what will happen on the first player who take the foreign aid in 5:18 because the player on his left challenged the one who has the duke. Will he claim the foreign aid? September 1, 2019 Reply Carlos John Baldoza how long does a round usually take? September 1, 2019 Reply Mark Angelo Flores Sir about the ability of the Captain about block stealing what did he block? I only have one idea the Captain's common ability, stealing 2 coins from another player and so if I have the Captain I can challenge the player who does that. September 1, 2019 Reply Darin LaGarry Good thorough rules breakdown. Thanks Rodney. November 14, 2019 Reply a n t o n Hi! Just recently played this game and we missed a number of rules. This video helps! Just a question, can I still launch a coup if I have 7-9 coins. Like I can launch but I am “not required”. Planning to play this with family and friends this coming new year’s eve!
