Royal Menagerie is a four player card game of hidden roles, where a gift of exotic animals can be boon or betrayal! Set in the court of 18th century South Asian nobility, players take on one of three roles – the Grand Vizier, the Loyalist and the Conspirators. Players attempt to manipulate each other’s menageries by gifting exotic animals and playing Action Cards in an intense flurry of action, treachery and unexpected twists as they try to discover each other’s roles and achieve their own covert objectives!
