Are you a dirty cheater? Well if you are Card Shark just might be the game for you!

Brought to you by Nerial, the developers of Reigns, Card Shark is a game all about using slight of hand to cheat at cards games against 18th century French aristocrats. Just don’t get caught. Turns out folks don’t take kindly to being cheated, and those folks happen to be packing. The press release claims it will teach you real card tricks you could actually use to cheat at card games. (Not that you should…) Is this accurate? Who knows. But Card Shark should be an interesting an unique title.



No firm release date as of yet for Card Shark, but you can expect it to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC sometime in 2021. Checkout the press release below for more information:


Card Shark from Nerial & Devolver Digital Cashes in on PC and Nintendo Switch in 2021
– Cheat or Die –
Ace-in-the-hole developer Nerial (Reigns) and poker-faced publisher Devolver Digital (also Reigns) have announced Card Shark, a tale of deception throughout 18th Century Europe… or the comprehensive catalog of card tricks and other deceptions employed by the Comte de Saint Germain as described in “Mémoires Sans Parole,” coming to Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021.
A wild card of its genre, Card Shark will teach you real card tricks and manipulations as you fleece and cheat your way to the top of 18th century French society. As you move from the parlor to the King’s table, build up your array of card tricks and use your ill-gotten gains to buy your way into some truly high-stakes games.
Just make sure you don’t get caught. Your fellow tricksters do not take kindly to cheaters.
Card Shark is designed by Nerial with art by Nicolai Troshinsky and music by Andrea Boccadoro.
