You own the questionably prestigious Ugly Gryphon Inn, which is the only Inn within a hundred miles. Your patrons are rowdy and rude, but they are the only ones around. Your goal is to fill your inn with enough patrons to keep the debt collectors at bay, but to do so you must manage some painfully particular, peculiar patrons.
CONTENTS18 Patron Cards
SETUPSimply shuffle the deck of patron cards and place them in a face-down stack in front of you. Draw 4 cards and arrange them in a face-up row in front of you. These patrons are considered to be at the bar.
GAMEPLAYThe game takes place in a series of turns until you’ve played all the cards from the deck and your hand. Each turn has the following flow:
1) Patron Goes to SleepOne of the patrons at the bar are ready for bed. Select a card from the bar area and place it at the top of the inn. The inn is a single vertical line of cards, with each card being a floor at the end.
2) Check RoomsStarting with the Patron you just placed, you check each patron card from top to bottom. You check the statement on their card to see what will irk them and cause them to leave. If the conditions are met, then apply the effects on their card. If a patron leaves due to an effect by another patron, their negative effect is not triggered.
3) New Patron(s) ArrivesAdds one more patron, regardless of the number of patrons in the bar. If there are less than 4, continue to add patrons until you have 4. If there are no cards left in the draw deck, then this is the final round.
4) Check for Bad EffectEvaluate the bad effect icons in the bar. If there are 3 or more of the same symbols, then you irk all the patrons that are sensitive to that bad effect!
GAME ENDAfter you’ve run out of cards in the deck, then count how many patrons you have in the inn. Do not include patrons in the bar. If you have 7 or more patrons in the inn - you’ve won! If you have less than 7, then you have lost.
