The Empire grows fat from the wealth of its distant colonies and a corrupt tyrant rules it with an iron fist. The armoured zeppelin Nostria is on its way home to the imperial capitol, its hold filled with precious cargo. The Emperor has hand-picked a team of his most loyal subjects to guard it. Little does he know that the ship has been infiltrated by enemy spies bent on undermining the Empire by stealing the cargo and throwing it overboard to henchmen on the ground below. The spies are dedicated not only to undermining the Empire, but also each other. Which spy will achieve this goal the fastest?
Mad Zeppelin*, a card game of treason aboard the airship Nostria for two to six players, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! In Mad Zeppelin, players will take on the roles of spies plotting against a corrupt tyrant, and each other, racing to be the first to steal enough cargo from the hold to achieve their goal of undermining the Empire.
There are fourteen different traitor characters - each with an agenda and a unique special ability - and in each round players will choose two of them to execute their nefarious plans. The goal of the game is not only to steal the most from the hold, but to do so before any of the other players and before the zeppelin reaches its final destination.
Players must think on their feet, adjusting their strategies to suit the randomly flying direction of the ship, as well as to whichever spies are currently active. Each round is different so adjust your plans accordingly!

The artwork is amazing but I have heard some bad reviews about this so will give this a miss...have to skip the less popular games due to the price increase in the fatter games I want such as CoT and the new Arkham board game soon to be released...(UK gamer!)
Not worth the buy then? That's a shame.
I bought it, played it, hated it. So did Tom Vasel.
I first so many bad things about this game i will be skipping it for sure unless FFG takes the time to rewrite the rules.
Shame about the wasted artwork :(
