How to play:

Sheriff of Nottingham is all about your manipulation skills and strategy. Even if you’re a First-time-player as long as you know what you’re doing, you can have an advantage over the other players because they haven’t seen your tells yet. Weigh the risks of getting caught versus the reward, but also consider the motives of the current Sheriff. Bringing 2-3 contrabands while not offering a bribe and bluffing that it’s all as declared can work, but everyone sees your bag of goods at the end of the round. Players will need to change up their tactics otherwise they’ll be called out immediately. When you get caught, you’ll have to pay the fine on contraband goods, but you’ll keep the ones you’ve honestly declared. The reward for sold goods is typically lower than the fine so that you can slip in something illegal, and if you get caught, at least you’ll break even. However, if you have a lot of the same product, try getting the Sheriff to inspect your bag. Not only will you get to keep all the cards, but the Sheriff will have to compensate with a penalty for each one. Bribe agreements have to be kept, but the unofficial do not. If you persuade the Sheriff to let you pass on the premise of letting them pass on your turn, you can go back on that deal and catch him with a bag full of contraband. However, they could trick you and only bring declared goods which will not only ruin your reputation but also cost you.
