Five Ravens is a quick game that combines deckbuilding and tableau building. Every player begins with the same nine cards, each of whom belong to a band of thieves. On your turn, you play one raven for its action, or denote it as your thief.
At the end of the round, players choose one relic using their chosen thieves to indicate selection order. Then, the Raven is permanently removed from your deck. This grants a bonus, or penalty, that affects your choices.
Players will see diverging strategies and lots of variability in such a small game with only five rounds.
