Ohne Furcht und Adel - rules summary

Order of Play:

On your turn, you may either take two gold or draw two cards and keep one. You may then build one district. You may take your special action at any time during your turn (except the King’s, which occurs next turn).


  1. Meuchler (Assassin): you may assassinate one character. An assassinated character gets no action this turn
  2. Dieb (Thief): you may rob one character, but not the assassin or his victim. You get their stored gold in hand at the beginning of their turn
  3. Magier (Magician): you may trade hands with one player, or discard any number of cards and draw the same number
  4. König (King): collect 1 gold for each Gold district you have built, plus choose a character first next turn
