You might even rally the Persians and Macedonians to your side. March armies and sortie fleets to raid enemy territories. Siege valuable cities, and engage your foes in fierce battles. Steel your nerves when you enter the fray of battle, as it is bloody and swiftly resolved using an elegant card-based system. Lead your forces with legendary characters such as Pericles and Cleon. Each leader has a unique ability, be it combat prowess or cunning diplomacy. Characters may become experienced— flipping the leader to their upgraded form with a more powerful ability.”

Summary: “A hilarious card game that lets you become an old time doctor, treating serious medieval maladies with some VERY questionable cures. Players draw gross Ailments and horrifying Cures, then attempt to cure their patient by suggesting various outdated cures, aiming to match symbols on the cards and back up their combination with lots of verbal jousting. The first doctor to be chosen thrice wins, and if everyone is sufficiently grossed out this is a bonus. This party game encourages interaction with your friends. Each of these Ailments and Cures are REAL things that happened.

Our games Trust Me, I’m a Doctor and Trust Me, I’m a Superhero have delighted medieval medicine super-fans around the world with quick, creative, engaging and easy-to-learn gameplay. We’ve got four amazing and new expansions for the series, and want to offer them to you through this Kickstarter-exclusive Trust Me I’m a Collection.”
