Has anyone tried playing this with more than 10 people? We generally have 11 - 14 people come to our board game nights and I thought it'd be fun to play a round of Coup with everyone. We have Coup + Reformation expansion already and I found a cheap second copy of Coup. Just wondering how many additional cards I should include.

Sounds like a crazy amount of downtime between turns. The game is slow enough with 6 already, why would you want to more than double that?

With 2 sets of the base game + reformation, you have 8 copies of each base role. Why not play two 7-player games with 4 copies of each role? Or an 8-player Reformation game and whoever left plays regular Coup?

I played it with 10 people once. I found the downtime too much.

There is also way more bluffing, because there are so many more cards of each role. Thus the information you have (cards you've seen) is relatively small compared to all cards in play.

6 people is really the max, but I prefer games with 4 to 5 people.
