Bemused is a card game for 4-6 players in which the players take on the role of a muse seeking to elevate their chosen human virtuoso to the greatest height of celebrity and influence. To do so, the muse must eliminate their virtuoso's rivals by levying doubts and dreads upon them until they are driven insane. Or worse. Bemused is not a social deduction game. Although there are deductive elements, Bemused is a social interaction experience that encourages shameless table talk, bluffing, and deal-making as players seek to maximize their end game scores. Bemused is best described as a strategic, "tank your rivals" game with hidden goals and asymmetric player powers.
