What is it
This card game features all four suits; clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades, but each one appears in four different colours and multiple times on each card. It’s all about judging the probability that the next player will be able to fulfil a challenge you lay down for them, based on the suits and colours that appear on their cards. On your turn, you play TWO cards. The first has to meet the criteria of a challenge set for you by the previous player. The second sets the challenge for the next player. You’ll want to force them to use their most powerful cards early in the game, but make sure you hang on to your own powerful cards and use them at the right time. Hold onto game-changing cards for too long and you could inadvertently blow everything! This outstanding game will confound your expectations and keep you on your toes! For 2 to 6 players.
