The Orcfather

Boardgame

The Orcfather is a card game based on a fantasy-themed mafia in which a player's characters can be orcs, elves, ogres, undead, dwarves and more. The players form two mafia families that are confronting one another, and each of the families elects its own "godfather" at the start of the game; the goal of the game is to eliminate the head of the rival family.

Each round starts with a planning phase in which players must secretly prepare the actions they plan to take — attack, defend, or business — but players cannot speak to one another during this phase. They must use their intuition to develop plans as a team, predicting the actions of both allies and enemies. Once all players have decided, they act in order.
