A murder has been committed in the Victorian Steampunk city of St. Sebastian. You have made the short list of Police suspects and the only way to retain your freedom is to prove that one of the others on the list is in fact the murderous culprit.
Players take turns making Accusations against the other players by placing Method, Motive, or Opportunity cards in front of them or providing Alibis against the Accusations made against them by other players. You must remember what has been played and craft your Accusations well to pin the murder on another player.
Ruse uses a standard poker deck of card with specialized suits and amazing Steampunk artwork to tell the story of murder and mayhem in the gaslights of St. Sebastian.
As a bonus, the deck may also be used to play all of your favorite traditional card games.
