Rules of the Obscurio game
in few steps
Through illustrated cards, the Grimoire delivers specific clues to the magicians in order to help them find the exit door of the library, among endless corridors and moving stairs.
The traitor secretly chooses images that look nearly alike to spread confusion and mislead the other players.
The magicians have to find the 7 right doors if they want to make it out of this library, while working as a team in spite of the traitor hiding within their ranks.
They must act quickly: the more time passes, the more traps appear, hindering the communication with the Grimoire!
