Rest in Peace

Things have become tight in the Plüngarden cemetery. Only 5 gravesites are left.
Unfortunately, it is the dearest wish of your relatives to be buried in those graves. You can tell which grave each particular relative would like by looking at their cards.

However, your relatives are not the only elderly persons in the village. There are many other old people still among the living who also yearn to be buried in those last remaining graves in the cemetery. Thus, your task is to ensure that death catches up with your relatives as quickly as possible in order to prevent one of the other old folks from snatching a grave away from your family. As an aid to that process, you should also be concerned about the health of the other elders and struggle to make sure that they stay as healthy as possible. The player whose relatives are most satisfactorily accommodated in their choice of graves at the end of the game wins.

    60 cards:

  • 5 graves
  • 5 x 5 grave-demands
  • 1 x new cementery
  • 5 x 5 older family members (one set of cards in one of five colours)
  • 4 x summary cards
  • 12 Pills (white plasticchips)
  • 10 Placebos (black plasticchips)
  • 5 Bittere Pills (red plasticchips)
  • 1 pill box
  • maniacal much money (in 1.000 and 3.000 bills)

Gameplay: Yes this is a card game, but from the feeling it plays more then a boardgame, because the most of the cards are shown face up on the table by the beginning of the game.
