Four houses struggle for power and control using any means necessary. You watch from the shadows, working behind the scenes and pulling all the right strings, in order to ensure your allies end up in a position of power while your enemies are lost and forgotten. Treachery in a Pocket is a card game with nobles vying for power. They are laid out in rows which represent levels of power and the higher a character is, the more power they have. Your goal is to move the nobles of the House you are allied with as high as possible and the nobles of your enemy House as near to the bottom as possible.
