In Royal Secrets, you play as a spy of a foreign power in the French court. Your goal is to cunningly influence the decisions of the realm in favor of your country. For that purpose, you will have to send your team of allied courtiers to audiences with the king and queen where only the most influential will be heard. You will be forced to bluff but also to pool resources with your opponents. But only the most cunning will win.
The game is played in 7 rounds corresponding to the 7 audiences to which players will send Courtiers and Valets (cards in their hands) in order to influence the king and queen and gain their favor. Players will have to pool resources with their opponents to gather enough influence to succeed in the audiences and gain. The player who has gathered the most after 7 rounds wins the game.
