Description Edit | History

Introducing Greedy Wizards - a two-player card game in which a red wizard battles a blue wizard for the right to eat a delicious cake.

Winning pieces of cake will take you closer to victory - whilst also making it more difficult to claim the next hand. Strategy, maths, probability and bluffing combine to make this a game unlike any other.

How to play

Each wizard holds nine spell cards numbered from one to nine. As our wizards are more "Greedy" than "Gandalf", their spell-casting abilities leave a little to be desired - making their spells a little on the unusual side. The game's incantations include things like summoning an “absolutely massive chicken” or “a woman who shouts hurricanes.

Players take it in turns to secretly select and then lay three spell cards face down, either side of a duel token. This is repeated until each wizard has played all nine of the cards they hold. Duels are resolved by adding up the total value of cards - with the wizard with the highest winning that particular scrap. Win two duels out of three and a piece of cake becomes theirs.

However, three pieces of cake are needed to win the game - and because our Wizards are Greedy, they value cake over spells. Winning a piece of cake means discarding a spell card. And as the cake cards are double-sided, the opposing wizard can see exactly when they are being played. When cake is in play, the game becomes one of strategy, bluffing and probability - do you have what it takes to get your cake and eat it?

Beautifully illustrated, easy to learn yet full of decisions and intrigue, it’s a game which can be enjoyed by any level of player. As long as they are greedy.
