Have you ever seen the 80’s comedy movie known as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? Essentially picture that movie in card game form and you have Scoundrel Society. The artwork and overall design of the game has been crafted very well. The illustrations are fun, detailed, and really add to the overall enjoyment of the theme. This is one of the reasons why it is easily our favorite game that we’ve purchased by Action Phase Games. It carries enough weight that a more serious gamer would appreciate it, while even gateway gamers could still handle it with ease as long as they have someone to walk them through it. I do wish the boxes that they release their small games in had inserts inside. It would have really helped with the storage of the games to have little dividers for the cards and tokens rather than just tossing everything into an empty box. Other than that, we love this game and we are finding ourselves coming back to it time and time again. It’s addictive, fun, and flows beautifully with great mechanics. If you’re a fan of these type of humorous and snobby settings, then you should consider this one. On average it plays from 30 to 45 minutes and as often as this game see's the table, we'll be holding onto Scoundrel Society for a long time.
Overall Meeple Rating: 7.5/10
