– [Clayton] Welcome to Overboard, Polygon’s card and board game show. Today, we’re playing
Sheriff of Nottingham. A game about bluffing and velvety sacks. The object of the game is
to fill your market stall with as many items as possible. This includes legal goods,
like apples and chickens, as well as illegal contraband. And that’s why each bag going into the market must be inspected first. Here’s how it’s played: each turn one player takes
on the role of sheriff. This role rotates every turn. All the other players choose up to five cards from their hand and place them in these little bags. Each player gets their own. The sheriff then inspects
the bags one at a time in any order they choose. Once the sheriff has picked a bag, the owner must tell them the type and number of cards in the bag, but they can’t say some
combination of cards. They have to say that
they’re all the same. This is where the subversion comes in. While players can’t lie
about the number of items, they can lie about the
type, so, someone could say four apples when they
actually placed two apples, one chicken, and a piece
of contraband in the bag. The sheriff can then
decide to open their bag and check what’s in it. And if they find cards that
aren’t supposed to be there, the player has to pay the sheriff a fine for each illegal card. The fines for contraband
cards are especially high. However, if a player is being honest, but manages to trick the sheriff into opening their bag anyway, the sheriff must pay a fine to the player for each of the cards in their bag. And note, once you pop
(snap) you cannot stop. The sheriff cannot change their mind once you’ve heard the
snap of a bag opening. However, bribing is totally
fair game, for everyone. This means that the player being inspected can bribe the sheriff
not to open their bag, but it also means the other
players can bribe the sheriff to open the bag. You can even offer the sheriff
cards from your own bag but be careful if you’re the sheriff. If the card they promised isn’t there, you don’t get anything. While this is a game mostly
about making and calling bluffs, you can learn a little
bit about what other cards players have in their hand
because cards are always discarded face up into two separate piles. When drawing new cards each turn, players have the option
to draw from these piles, if they’re willing to let everyone know what cards they now have in their hand. There are also bonus points
for having the most chickens, apples, bread, and cheese
at the end of the game. So, when a player with a bunch of cheese already in their market
stall claims to have five apples in their bag,
you’re right to be suspicious or maybe that’s just what
they want you to think. But winning requires
taking those kind of risks. Speaking of, at the end of the game, players total up the value of
all the goods and contraband they managed to get to their market stall along with any money they had left over at the end of the game and any
bonus money they are awarded for collecting the most
of a certain type of card. The player with the most money wins. So, let’s get to it and
ask, what’s in the bag? – Welcome to Overboard. Today we are playing
Sheriff of Nottingham, and Clayton is going to
start us off as the sheriff. – So, I’ve got three bags
here, and I get to decide whose I inspect first, but I’m looking straight
across the table, Jeff. So, I’m gonna ask you Jeff.
– Hi. – What’s in the bag? – I have three chickens. – Three chickens?
– Yes, sir. – How did you get three chickens? – Huey, Dewy, and Louie are in the bag. – Sentient chickens are in the bag? – Yeah, they all have
different colored shirts on, their bottoms are exposed. – So, I feel like getting three chickens– (laughing) Derailed. We’ve been derailed. I feel like getting three
chickens right off the bat is pretty tough, so, I want a money. And I won’t open it. I’m a pretty dirty sheriff. – Tell me more about this dirty sheriff. (laughing) – Welcome to our new show, Dirty Sheriff. – Dirty Sheriff. – Why don’t we have that? – I’ve never told a lie in my entire life. – Of course. – There are certainly three chickens. – Are you sure, ’cause I can
open this and you gotta pay up. Absolutely sure? – I think there’s three chickens in there. – Just for one money, that’s
all I’m asking for, come on. – I think there’s three chickens in there. – Alright, get choosin’ it. – See a chicken, a chicken, damn it! (laughing) – Why do you sound like you’re lying even when you’re telling the truth? – [Jeff] I don’t know. – And that’s a consistent
trait that you have, not just in games, but in life. – What do you mean, I’ve never heard that. – Alright, Ashley, what’s in the bag? – Three cheese. – I thought you were gonna
say chickens and I was– (laughing) – You’re just gonna flip
the gameboard or something. – Okay. Three cheese. – Threes. – Do you really have
three cheese in there? Yes, you do? Okay. – Cheese pizza. – Three cheese pizza? – [Simone] Pizza’s contraband, Ashley. – I feel like–
– Take that hat. – I can’t assume that just because Jeff was actually telling the truth
that you actually the truth, and I want a money, and I won’t open it. Just one. – No. (laughing) – Sorry, Sheriff Clayton.
– I know. – I’m sorry, Dirty Sheriff. (laughing) – We’re honest working tradespeople. – This town’s too clean
for the dirty sheriff. – I can’t afford two of
these, so, you can have it. – Thank you. And I have to show you
what’s really in the bag. – What’s really in the bag? – Oh, there’s like three shotguns. – Three shotguns. – [Clayton] Oh, good, okay. – [Simone] Threes! – Three cheeses. – Simone, what is in your bag? – One chicken.
– Just one? – Just one chicken. – Okay, I’m not even
gonna, it’s not worth it. – Don’t even bother. (laughing) It’s one chicken.
– Exciting. – [Simone] I’m a really
action-packed player over here. – Okay.
– Sheriff Jeff. – Stuff those bags. – [Clayton] Alright,
looks like we’re ready. – Okay, gonna start with Ashley. What up in this bag? – Two breads.
– Two breads. – Stop making pizza.
You’re anachronistic. – I’m ahead of my time. – No, they made pizza back then. It was a peasant’s food. – We’re gonna get kicked out of the medieval reenactment village. – Madea’s medieval village? (laughing) – Madea’s medieval village. – I actually don’t think
there’s two bread in there. – Okay. (laughing) – End of story, I guess. – Wow, okay. – Gonna pop that top. Thank you. – [Simone] Contraband Ashley. Dirty Ashley. – So, now she has to pay– – She has to pay you the penalty, however, those get discarded, and you get to decide which
discard pile they go in. – [Simone] You fucker.
– [Jeff] Oh, nasty. – [Ashley] Whoa! – I’m sorry, so you have to give me– – Oh, I’m sorry Contraband Ashley is my language too strong for you? – Eight doll hairs. – Eight whole doll hairs? Fuck. Ashley, do you think you’ll need a loan? – Maybe. (laughing) – Next up. – Two cheese. (laughing) What was that look? – What was that voice? (laughing) – I’m really not sure. – Are you really sure that there’s– – I am really sure about the cheese, but I’m not sure about
this character, cool– – I think you’re still
workshopping this character, and I think this character has some– – [Simone] Hey Jeff– (laughing) I’ve got– (laughing) I’m selling two cheese at the market. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Just forget about it. – I think you’re also lying to me. – Why? – Does any of those characters
make me not wanna open this? We saw how badly Ashley
had to pay for this. – I don’t really wanna pay you any money. – You might have to. – I don’t think I will. – So two cheese. Two cheese is not a lot,
but I made some money back, so I don’t feel too
bad about if I’m wrong. (pouch snapping) (laughing) Oh boy. Again. You owe me. So she does get to pass the cheese. – And I do. – And she owes me–
– Two money. – Four.
– No, wait, four money. – That’s contraband. That’s extra bad. – Two, three, four. – Don’t let my childish demeanor fool you. I always find the bag. (laughing) – Clean sheriff after all. – Clayton. – That’s my sack. Don’t touch my velvety sack. – Three apples.
– What up in your sack? – It’s just the three apples. That’s all it is, I swear. (laughing) Just three apples. – You know, most sacks
only have two apples. (laughing) – Just three apples, I swear. – You see what happens to
people when they lie to me. – I know. – Do you wanna– – I don’t wanna pay for my three apples. – Well since I’ve made a lot of money, if I’m wrong, this is not gonna hurt me. – Is this your strategy,
is to sound very dishonest? – It might be. – Well, I’m sorry I’m just
gonna have to do this also. – Okay. (laughing) – Is it three apples?
– It’s just some bread. – [Group] It’s just some bread? – So you get the two apples. The bread doesn’t go though, right? – No, I gotta pay you the penalty. – [Simone] Amateur hour. – [Jeff] So now it’s Ashley’s turn. – [Simone] Sheriff Ashley. Hey Jeff, tell me your strategy
for if people are lying. Actually, tell me your strategy for lying. Oh wait, I didn’t actually
put things in a bag. I’m sorry. – My strategy for getting
around lying is never lying, and being a completely honest person. (laughing and chattering) – Oh, I thought this was Jeff. My bad. (laughing) – What’s in here? – Uh, let me think about it a sec. Oh, two apples. – All jokes aside, would you
give me money to not open it, and let you do apple
business and other business? – I’ll give you one. – What if you gave me two? – But that’s the same
as the penalty anyway. – What if you gave me two? – [Jeff] She’s marking it
with her scent, watch out. – Her musk is all over that velvety– – Sack.
– Sack. – [Jeff] No! – I’m uncomfortable now. – It’s not worth it to
me if you just open it. Unless I’m trying to make you open it. – I don’t really give a shit. Here you go. Thank you. What is it? Is it contraband, because– – [Clayton] I don’t have to tell you. – [Group] Whoa! – [Clayton] Sneaky Pete! – [Jeff] Just that one, though. – Oh my god. What’s in here? – Three bread. – Three bread? – Three bread. – Thread. – Thread. – Thread. – Um, okay. Are you sure? – No, I’m not sure that I
put three bread in there. – I feel like that’s a lot
of bread to get at once. – Okay, three cheese Ashley. Thrashley. – Dope. – That’s like your heavy metal name. – Do you think I should open this? Yes, no, what do other people think? – [Clayton] Three bread? – Though, she did learn
from her mistake last time. – [Jeff] I’ve never known
Simone to learn from mistakes. – [Clayton] She’s not trying to stop you. – That’s what she thinks,
that’s what she wants. – I don’t know what it means. – I hate being Sheriff, this sucks. (groaning) – So tense. – Don’t cry, Sheriff Ashley. – Maybe you can just take– – Thank you. (laughing) – [Jeff] Take your sack back. (laughing) – Fuck! (laughing) – I thought she had it. – [Ashley] Oh, I should
have just given it to her. – [Jeff] Now you’re gonna
have to give it to her. – Three breads. – [Jeff] Threads. – Bread. – So you owe her six doll hairs. – Maybe I’ll have to take a loan. – What’s in here?
– Your favorite. – Chickens?
– No, three cheese. – Okay, that’s my territory. – I’m sorry, I’m encroaching on it. I’m coming for you. – So will you pay me to keep your cheese? ‘Cause I can look the other way. I am easily bribed. – [Jeff] No, you can just
let my three cheese through. What are you doing behind your back? – I’m feeling it. – There’s three cheeses in there. You trying to see if cheese is in there? – Ashley, I’ll give you one to open it. – Then pay him three cheese fee? You know what, fine. – [Jeff And Simone] Three cheese fee! – To open it. – No, that’s okay. – You can make some of your
money back if I’m lying. – One? – That’s all I can afford. I’m interested in seeing this go through, but not that interested. – What do you think, Simone? Do you think I’m lying? – I don’t think. – I think you are not lying. I’m gonna be burned, aren’t I? – Nope, three cheese. – Oh my god. (laughing) Told you I was being honest. I’ve never lied. – You’re a good sheriff, Ashley. – No, I’m not, look at this. – Yeah. – I’m fucked. – Sheriff Simone. – Sheriff Simone. Mama’s the sheriff now. – [Clayton] I think this
time I’m not gonna lie. – That’s what I say on
most of my Tinder dates. (laughing) – Oh, I’m– – [Jeff] Are you nervous for the truth? – I’m a little nervous, but
I’m gonna hit up a non-liar. A noted non-liar, Clayton Ashley. – No lies, four apples. – Tell me, okay, where’d
you get the apples? – [Group] Fapples! (laughing) – So, four apples. You’ve probably been getting
these apples for awhile. Do you guys think it’s too many apples? – I think it’s too many apples. – Too many apples. – Do you wanna pay me to open it? – I’ve earned my money the
hard way by being honest. – I’m earning my money the
hard way by being honest. – I just wanna so doubt.
– Okay, I’m not gonna. I don’t think you’re lying. – What? Four apples? – [Simone] I think he’s got four apples. – I’ve got three apples. – Fuck! – I fucking told you! – [Jeff] One chicken’s through. Wow, apple king. Apple bottom boy. – Alright, um, what are you the king of? Cheese? Chickens? – Yes, and that is–
– [Simone] Chicken king. – I’m actually going for the
chicken, I mean, cheese crown. – [Simone] Cheese crown? – There’s again, another
three cheese are in there. I’m going for the cheese crown. I’m the cheese king. – I did just see him take cheese. No, he took two. There was a contraband in the middle. Three cheese? – It’s probably two
cheese, and a contraband. – That’s what I think too. – Do you wanna pay me to
open it and risk that? – I’m gonna use what I had. – I honestly don’t think
you’re lying either. – Thank you. I’ve never lied before. Except for right now. – Fuck. (laughing) – I’m sorry. – Called it. – I mean, I wasn’t lying about
going for the cheese crown. I did lie about what else was in my bag. – Just got a little on the
side. Ashley, what about you? – One cheese. – Just one cheese in here? – Yes, because someone. – I think that you are– – [Clayton] It’s a low risk, low reward. – I don’t think you’re lying. – I bet she was. – I don’t think it matters, because it’s none of your business. – Fuck! Why am I the worst goddamn
sheriff in the world? – That was sly. – Oh, I retire. How’s it going, Clayton? – It’s going pretty well. How’s your day, yeah? – I’m trying to decide. – Beautiful day in Nottingham? – Should I do a british
accent for this one? – No.
– [Ashley] Yes, please. (laughing) – I can do the Richard Nixon
from Futurama pretty well. – Richard Nixon. – Whoa! – I can do the voice of an honest man. – Now I’m intimidated. – Sheriff, what’s in the bag? – There is four breads in there. – [Clayton] I don’t know. See, I don’t know why
you would try so hard to get a bunch of bread through, ’cause that’s not something
you’re trying to do. Give me money. Jeff, give me money. I need money. – He wants the money, Jeff. – I’m not even telling you
how much. Just something. Give me a bone. You’ll get like your five
contraband through here. I know you said four, but it’s– – There’s only four pieces of bread. – Contraband. – Shaped like crossbows. – So, if you lie about having
bread, is it contra-bread? – Contra-bread. – You sure? Last chance. (laughing) – Oh no! – It was a quick last chance. – God, Jeff. How did you get that much bread? – I’m just an honest man. – [Simone] Where did it come from? – From my bakery. Thank you.
– Unbelievable. – So that’s what? – That’s eight. – Jeff is really rich. – This is gonna be an interesting game for who gets second place. – Who would have thought being honest would be such a lucrative career? – Some of us didn’t ever
have a choice, Jeff. – Some of us are never given
the chance to be honest. – [Simone] Take your bread privilege! – Ashley, what’s in the bag? – Two apples.
– Two apples. Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. – Two bushels of apples. – Apples are my business. – Well, does it look
like I’m gonna catch up with your apples anytime soon? – You can’t make ketchup
with apples, Ashley, that’s tomatoes. – But you’ve been known to
try to take one card through, and lied about it, so I don’t
know if I can trust this. – Okay.
– Can you give me one money? – No, I’m poor as fuck. – But at least you’ll
get closer to bankruptcy. – This is true. – No. (pouch snapping) – Oh, pop that top. (laughing) – Wow, Clayton, you’re gonna love to hear
about what I have in my bag. – Bankrupt would be speed run. – Is it two apples?
– Yeah, any percent. – I’ve got three cheese. – Wait, shouldn’t I get four? – [Clayton] Yeah. – [Jeff] Oh no. – Trying to cheat me. – Sly. I am not a crook. – It finally paid off. – [Clayton] Three cheese, really? – Do you want to hear more about them? A nice camembert. Three rounds of camembert cheese. – Is that a cheese?
– Are you kidding? – Oh, I was thinking
chamomile, and that’s a tea. – That’s true, I don’t have
that, ’cause I would be lying. (chattering) – I feel like I’m the one lying right now. – Maybe you are. – I’m pulling really hard
on this. Are you sure? – Yeah. – I find it hard to believe. (pouch snapping) – Stupid, stupid Clayton. Whoa, honesty is the best policy. – Who woulda thunk it? – Sorry that was such a let down, y’all. (laughing) I know you wanted me to have
fifty pieces of contraband, but I am an honest merchant. – Clayton, this is a hefty bag. What up in this piece? – Four bread. – Trying to come for my bread crown? – I want a bread crown. – Me too. Brown. – I’m sorry. I’m actually having trouble
remembering what I put in there. I’m pretty sure it’s four bread. – I don’t think it’s four bread. – I’m not sure either. – Well let’s all find out. (pouch snapping) (laughing) Oh, Clayton, this doesn’t
look like four breads to me. It looks like three bread
and an apple. (snapping) Give me them two buckos. – Honesty is easier when you
remember what’s in the bag. – Okay, speaking of honesty,
also feels like a hefty bag. – It’s two chickens. Cluck, cluck. – What are their names? – It’s the sound of chickens. – I don’t think it’s two chickens in here. I think there’s maybe like one chicken, and something like a
chicken shaped crossbow. – Why? You don’t believe that
chickens want to elope and can find love in a kitchen? – No, I think you’re lying also. (pouch snapping) – I could be wrong though. – Idiot! – So how much do I owe you? – Four, for this beautiful
honey-mooning pair. – Whatcha got? – Three apples. – I find that– What are these? Those are cheese-ohs. – Those are machismos, these were reezos, these were my other chees-ohs. – Cheetos.
– Cheetos. – I don’t think you
have a thrapple in here. – Chicos.
– Chicos. – I’ve got that thrapple. I’ve got that golden thrapple. – I don’t think you do. (laughing) Do you want to convince me otherwise? – No. – Do you wanna pay for your sins? – No. – You might have to. (laughing) Time to pay for those sins, hopefully. – Oh, dang. An honest turn from everybody. So that’s six? – Six-ohs. Thank you. – I paid for your sins. Ashley. – I’m the sheriff. – [Clayton] Why is my bag full? – I don’t know. – Wait, did you fill his bag? – No, I think you did. – Oh, jeez. (laughing) – Who is this little guy? What’s in here? – Three cheese, please. – (Scoffs) You wanna steal
my three cheese line? – Ashley did originate that line. – Look, I’m gonna level with you here. There is a chicken in
there with two cheese. I’ll either give you the
chicken, or two money. – Oh, if I don’t open it? – [Clayton] Mmm-hmm. – Well, no, yeah. I do like chicken. – ‘Cause that’s what you
want, the chicken, right? – Can I pay to not have that chicken? – How much? – And open it?
– Can I give you two? ‘Cause you’ve already got two either way. – Oh. – But you don’t get a chicken that way. – Yeah, but you still get the two. – He’s trying to do that because then you’ll tie for chicken. – Yeah! – You know what, Clayton? Screw you. (laughing) – I didn’t have a chicken in there. Two cheese. – God! – See, you could have had
money either way, just saying. – What do you have, Jeff? – Stop me if you’ve heard this one. There is three cheese in there. – Fuck you guys. Three cheese? Are you sure? – Uh huh. – Do you want to part with any monies? Does anyone else want to part with monies? ‘Cause Jeff’s out of
control with his empire. – I really don’t think I can risk it. – He’s kind of done a thing where’s he’s been honest most of the time. – Is this the last round though? – [Clayton] Simone’s
will be the last round. – I mean, if you believe I’ve
had three cheese three times, you can believe that if you’d like. – Just take it. – These mind games have to stop. – These honesty games need to stop. – Honesty games. That sounds nice. – Simone.
– Yes. Two bread. – That sounded like a lie. – Why? This is your last turn
though, Clayton did point out, so it could be your last
chance for contraband. – More like my last chance to make a– I’m experimenting with a gluten free loaf. There’s a lot of demand
for it in the village. – Was there a crossbow in it? – Maybe there’s one
gluten free loaf, yeah. It’s made of a lot of crossbow. There’s no gluten in crossbows. (pouch snapping) – No. – I love free money from Ashley. – I wanna take out a loan. – [Jeff] Whoa! – Jeff.
– [Jeff] Hi. – It’s a bag. What’s up with that? – Much like the color of
the bag, there are three– – Contraband? – Three apples– (laughing) to shoot with a crossbow. You can shoot an arrow
at these three apples. – Why would he go for apples
now, when he has no apples? Oh my gosh. – Ya! (laughing) – You’ve never been so
burdened by the truth before. – Okay, Ashley, what have you got? – Hold on, hold on. Mama’s gotta pay up. – Six? – Six buckos. – Mama’s gotta pay up. – What’s up with the bag? – I have one apple. I have changed my ways, and I don’t care about money anymore. – She’s changed her ways and put different contraband in there. – It is the end of the game. Okay, cool, that’s apple. Hey, Clayton, what about you? What’s in your bag? – Five crossbows. I mean, five chickens. I mean, five apples. – I feel like you’re trying
to get me to open the bag, but maybe you’re also trying
to not get me to open the bag, which means you’re trying
to get me to open the bag. – [Jeff] If it was five crossbows,
that would be fantastic. – It’s five fucking apples! – How did you get five apples? – Unbelievable! – I can’t even get two of anything. – I drew two last turn,
and drew another three. It was great. – So, what is that? 10 bucks? – So many fucking apples. – Yeah, 10. – Oh my god. Apple bottom master. – I’m never eating apples again. – So now we have to do math. – Yeah, we gotta do a lot of math now. (jazzy instrumental music playing) So, we’ve figured it out. Our winner. – [Simone] 185 gold for Jeff. – Which is, I think,
twice of almost any of us. – No, I had 105, so I
came in second somehow. It did not feel like I was going too. (light-hearted music)
