Why It's On The List
  • This three-handed trick-taking game resets trump on each and every trick - and yet the unique scoring system (with bargain piles and junk piles) is surprisingly easy to understand. It's just difficult to play well!
Tips & Tricks:
    • There is a memory element to the game - but you can refresh your memory between hands.
    • The game will play with four players - but three is the number you really want.
    • Don't be ashamed of a low score - it took me 2-3 games to get a positive score.
    • This is the second of two games on my top 50 list from designer Uwe Rosenberg. (Weirdly enough, one is from his "meaty sprawling board games" period and one is from his "do wacky things with decks of cards" period.)
