In Patronize, you are the head of an influential house. You must choose when to support a given personality's endeavors, and when to sit back and try to profit from others' work. Choose wisely, and your family can lay claim to many great accomplishments; choose poorly, and your family name will be of interest only to historians.
At its heart, Patronize is a trick-taking game, but one in which the decision to act or pass is a key strategic choice. Each personality card has differing strengths and weaknesses, and losing a hand can be a benefit if you can use the card’s powers to gain the accomplishments you need to outscore your opponents. With fast play and strategic depth, you'll want o play it again and again!
Patronize is a fast and fun trick-taking game from Japanese designer Hisashi Hayashi (Trains, Sail to India).
