Four Humours is a strategic board game for 2-6 players that plays in 45 minutes.
You are a pharmacist in medieval times. The current best psychological theory available is called the Four Humours. Your goal is to influence the characters of the kingdom to prove your psychology is the best.
The four humours can be explained as such:
Choleric (Yellow Bile) - Goal-oriented, decisive, and ambitious.
Sanguine (Red Blood) - Talkative, enthusiastic, and social.
Melancholic (Black bile) - Analytical, detail-oriented, reserved.
Phlegmatic (White Phlegm) - Relaxed, peaceful, easy-going.
Each turn, play a humour token from your hand onto a character of a scene card influencing the character as one of the four humours. Each character has a possibility of two humour types played onto it, and each token is played face down so you know the humour of the character but none of the other players do. The purpose is to have your character(s) of the scene be the beneficiary when it comes time to resolve the hierarchy of the humours flipping all tokens face up.
Players will need to use their deduction skills to determine if playing into a scene might be beneficial to them. They may also bluff and backstab other trusting players in hopes of gaining an advantage influencing the kingdom.
Once two of the four scene cards are filled with humour tokens, all humour tokens are resolved. Humours that benefit from the hierarchy of the humours resolved in order (Choleric x1, Sanguine x2+, Melancholic x1 or Melancholic x2, All remaining Phlegmatic) are moved onto the kingdom map.
The game ends when players achieve two of the common goals of influencing the kingdom, where the player with the most goals completed wins. There is also a mid-game and end-game reveal that allows players to catch-up and take the lead even if an opponent is able to complete to goals ending the game.
Four Humours is a game that is great for people that love deduction and implements the prisoner's dilemma in an innovative and clever way. It's a game where you can assert your personality through the personality types of the four humours during play, whether that be through aggression.
