Prince John is on his way to Nottingham! Players, in the role of merchants, see this as an opportunity to create quick profits by selling goods in the bustling city during the Prince's visit. However, players need to first get their goods through the city gate, which is under the watch of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Will you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit? Or risk it all by smuggling in illicit goods? Be mindful, though, as the Sheriff always has his eyes out for tricksters and liars and if he catches one, he may confiscate those goods for himself! In Sheriff of Nottingham, players will not only be able to experience Nottingham as a merchant of the city, but each turn one player will also act as the Sheriff too. Players declare goods they wish to bring into the city, secretly stored in their burlap sack. The Sheriff must then decide who gets into the city with their goods, who gets searched, and who may have their goods confiscated! Do you have what it takes to be looked at as an honest merchant? Will you have dealings with the Sheriff to let you in? Or will you convince the Sheriff to target another player while you quietly slip by the gate? Declare your goods, negotiate deals, and watch out for the Sheriff of Nottingham!
