Tichu is really bucking the trend. Do you have that Mark? I'd like to try it.

No, but I have Gang of Four, which is similar & which I enjoy more.

Now all the Tichu fans are properly cued to come on in & jump me. :-)

BTW, I've been playing RAGE and there's two different rule sets. I like the game and I imagine you probably played the German Rules rather than the International. I might urge you to give it another try. The change rage/ out rage/ wild rage are not that choatic IMO.

I read your comment about liking Gang of Four more than Tichu and immediately thought I needed to reply. Then I saw your second line and laughed out loud.
