G54 uses the same lightning fast rules found in Coup - claim, counter, challenge and bluff - and then adds an exciting strategic layer via character selection. Before each game starts, five character roles are chosen randomly from 25 different cards. Each of the five characters has a unique ability - the combination of abilities and interplay between them makes each game unique. There are over 5,000 different ways to play!
