To the Bride is a social deduction party game where players are through to a deadly wedding where you can’t tell friend from foe. You have four ways to act: distribute wine and poison, look inside a goblet, trade your own goblet (or switch two others), and toast to others to make them drink (but you must drink with them!). The goal of the game is to keep your goblet free of poison, become the last surviving player by poisoning your foes.

You are allowed to trick your opponent.
If you lift your feet in any way, you must hop on/off the train.
