Description Edit | History

In Reiner Knizia's High Society, players bid against each other to acquire the various trappings of wealth (positive-number and multiplier cards) while avoiding its pitfalls (negative number and divisor cards). While bidding, though, keep an eye on your remaining cash - at the end of the game, even though all those positive-number cards might add up to a win, the player with the least money isn't even considered for victory.

In 2003 re-published by Überplay.

In 2003 published with a new theme by Amigo as Einfach Tierisch.

In 2006, published by University Games as Animalement Vôtre (French version) and Beestenveiling (Dutch version).

In 2008, re-published by Eagle-Gryphon Games

0 High Conspiracy Tuck Box 22mm
Here is a tuck box I created for my PNP copy of the High Conspiracy re-theme of High Society. The box is based on and uses material from the card back designed by Filipe Cunha ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/endou_kenji ). The tuckbox is 22mm thick, which gives me about 1.5mm space when printing on 11 mil paper.

This is the back of the cards for the High Society re-theme from kilgore (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/kilgore). (Printer Friendly) Edit: I think I'll split it into 2 different backs. One for the money and another for the auction items... we'll see how it works.
