Card Shark is an upcoming Switch game about cheating at cards.
Announced during Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase today, Card Shark is a new game that sees players learning how to cheat 18th century French aristocrats in games of cards. By practicing sleight of hand like shoving cards up your sleeves or hiding them in your palm, you’ll be able to make a lot of money - provided, that is, you don’t get yourself shot in the process.

Swindling your opponents is always going to be a risk, and the more brazenly or ineptly you do so, the more irate your target will become. Push them too far, and you’ll risk them pulling a pistol on you and potentially ending your winnings for good.
Card Shark is being developed by Nerial, the studio behind popular monarch-simulation game, Reigns, as well as Reigns: Her Majesty and Reigns: Game of Thrones. In similar form, it looks like Card Shark will feature plenty of entertaining humor along the way. Indie publisher Devolver Digital is helping deliver the game, which is planned to arrive at an undisclosed date next year.
