Description Edit | History

Emperor's New Clothes is a game inspired by the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale.

In Emperor's New Clothes, players pretend to take on roles, and pretend that each role card indicates the types of resources (and sets of resources) required to score points. Dice are rolled (three rolls per turn) to pretend to acquire resources, and cards may be played by the active player and opponents to affect dice rolls, card plays, etc.

After each player has had a chance to roll, the roles are revealed and resources are turned in for points.

3 The Original Emperor's New Clothes rulebook
This is the original rulebook as provided in the Kickstarter campaign. Yes, this is in fact several blank pages (with bookmarks). The "tutorial," in conjunction with the How to Play video, was what actually showed the setup and outlined the order of play.

6 Emperor's Ninja Clothes (a ninja-themed variant for ENC) (v0.1)
Inspired by Oliphant's Cthulu mod, I decided to create my own variant for this brilliant game. This mod is still a work in progress, so please send feedback!

4 ENC - Lonely at the Top - Fan Made Expansion - POST REVEAL UPDATE!
Fan made expansion for ENC - Solo Variant 1.2 - REDESIGNED! POST BIG REVEAL! "Lonely at the Top" The rules have been redesigned in the fan made PnP expansion to allow fluid 1p enjoyment. This game can be played in several ways. 1. You can design a game on the printable components and play them by yourself. 2. You can take the rules from another game and imagine that you are playing them by yourself. 3. You can imagine that you have rules and imagine that you are playing them accurately by yourself. 4. You can play a prank on yourself and just pretend to be imagining to play a real imaginary game until you realize you were only joking. 5. You can give this as a gift to someone else (in earnest or ironically) 6. You can sell it on EBAY (Do it! All the text and art are public domain!) 7....

12 ENC - Robe of the Cthulu! - Fan Made Expansion
This fan-made expansion adds a horror element and a bit more luck to a smaller game (2 - 4 players optimally). It comes with a complete "play book" to download which affect certain game mechanics and causes a whole new storyline element filled with mystery and ancient danger to befall whomever dares to don the magical robe. Enjoy! [warning - due to the graphic horror themed nature of some of the text, this expansion may not be suitable for younger players. Parents please use discretion.]
