Set in Paris, on the eve of the French Revolution, Queen's Necklace is a game of gem-selling, influence, and intrigue at the court. In the role of royal jewelers, 2 to 4 players compete to sell rare jewels to the Queen and her court. From the slums, where purse-snatchers and courtesans work their respective trades, to the inner salons of the Louvre, where confessors, royal astrologers, musketeers, and court favorites mingle and scheme in hushed conversations, the position of King's Jeweler has suddenly become a lot more dangerous! Players compete to craft and sell the most exquisite jewels to the Queen and her court. But they must be always aware of the ever-changing fashions and rarity of different gems (and may even try to manipulate it).

Bargain and Gem Management

Jeweler's loupe in hand, you must decide how best to spend your hard-earned ducats: acquiring beautiful gems (diamonds, emeralds, and rubies) or buying the favors of the various court followers. After three years of craftsmanship, the jeweler who sells the most precious gems and builds the largest fortune will receive the coveted title of King's Jeweler and a place at the court!

Legendary Craftsmanship

Designed by the legendary Bruno Faidutti and Bruno Cathala, Queen’s Necklace is a fast, card-driven game of jewel trading and intrigue. The jeweler who earns the most prestige will receive the coveted title of King’s Jeweler and a place at the Court!
