A trick taking game that I can actually figure out how to bid properly *more often* than the rest of the group. This score possibly reflects that I win frequently.

Hard to explain, but great fun!!! The kids and I play this for hours. I actually made a second game from 81 oversized playing cards.

Difficult to master trick taking game. 12 suits, 4 suits per card, 27 cards per suit, and the first player each hand picks one of the four suits on his card.

Not good with only two players. This games seems to shine with 4+ players but I haven't had the chance to try with 8-10 players yet.

Ah yes, I was wrong about Sticheln being the best non-team trick-taking game, this one is better - and it even works with only two players, for a change.

This is THE most challenging trick-taking/bidding I have ever seen. It really messing with your head. I love it, but I can never seem to get people to play it. I would probably rate it higher if other people would join me in a game or 2!

Traverse brings together the best elements of Chinese Checkers and Chess. It object is the same as Chinese Checkers, but each piece moves in its own unique manner. The game moves quickly, but strategy is absolutely necessary. A great game for all ages.

I believe I received this as a Christmas gift. I had played Dale Boan's copy once. 3x3x3x3=81 unique cards. I should give it a try again. By the makers of Quiddler.
The only game I own beginning with the letter X!

The game is interesting due to the '12 suits' in the game. It's a little hard to teach to neogamers as the boss cards are not always clear to them. The large number of suits make predicting the number of trick you'll take harder and leads to low scoring games.

Too complicated for social-neogamer types and too random for the 'analytical big-brained' gamers. Who is the target market for this game?

Clever variation on the "guess how many tricks I'll take this round" type of card games.

Clumsy card design, especially coming from the makers of the absurdly elegant Set, but a good, interesting trick-taking game, with plenty of opportunities for placid spite.

A very good trick-taking game which has simple enough mechanics to learn quickly but enough complexity to make it thoroughly enjoyable for a 'bridge club' style of play.

At one time, I didn't really like Power Grid so Ted made my piece a Power Grid piece.

Good trick-taking game that really throws people for a loop, even if they're experienced with other trick-taking games.

My family hates this game, a few others think it is ok. I think it is very good. Wish I could get more people to play with me. I rated it in the "7's" instead of the "8's" because it is so disliked by others--& a game is less rewarding if I can't find anyone who enjoys playing it.

Play a card and choose a suit. If someone can beat you, they take the trick, but that's okay. You're not trying to win them all, just as many as you bet you'd be able to win! Interesting, simple, and much, much better than I expected it to be.

I did some play-testing for this. Remarkable how many different sets of rules work for these cards.

Played as a filler in our group for the first time last week. Feelings were mixed-- some (including me) really liked it, others not so much.

This game is just about perfect as a filler or "after" game, lying somewhere between the mindless fun of Fluxx or Dalmuti and the seriousness of Set or Mu. I liked the fact that it was easy enough to teach in 2 minutes, yet complex enough to demand some thinking. A couple of minor rules make the strategy very interesting, particularly the "last card wins" rule.

An innovative trick-taking game, using multiple symbols to a card. The best of the trick-taking games I have yet encountered.

I love a trick-taking game. This one expands up to 10 players. Each card with 4 possible suits. You have to pick your exact trick count. bought from Paul

Fun little trick-taking card game with some subtle strategy that eclipses similar card games that use a traditional 52-card deck.

1st played November 7th, 2007. It takes ~5min to learn and ~30min for 4 to play. This trick taking game has its own unique blend of mechanics. Of 8 cards dealt to you, you must bid how many you will take. If correct, you get that many positive points. If wrong, you get negative points equal to absolute value of %u201Cguessed%u201D minus %u201Ctaken%u201D. Dealer must bid where bids don%u2019t equal 8. Player to the right of dealer leads and declares symbol is to be followed. You need the cheat sheet in this one. Cards have 4 object types on them and there are 1-3 of each of those objects. Card values range from 4-12. Highest values wins. If a tie, the last card of that value wins, provided it%u2019s of the lead suit. You must follow the suit led, which means if 2 stars are lead you must play a card with two stars on it if you have it. Good balance of luck and strategy in this as you must evaluate your hand, what others are playing and make your bid. I%u2019d recommend giving this a game play, especially if you like trick taking games. Give this consideration of purchase and defiantly play if you know someone who has it.

Purchased this game and didn't play it for awhile. When it did get ot the table I liked it a bunch. The fact that each card has three different suits made for an interesting game play. It is a good game for those gamers who like card games where they can set up their hands for a final play. Not unlike setting up a Bridge hand where you have to lose a few tricks to then take your own.
