Played a few times now, and I really like it. A bit like Hearts but much more interesting. The implementation of theme is cool, comparable to The Bottle Imp. There is a fairly high luck (bad luck!) factor but I think skillful play matters more. The play is fast and fun.

Really like this game. Well integrated theme and some very unique mechanics. Recommended. Rating will likely go up with more plays.

A clever twist on trick taking, with some room for maneuvering. Learning definitely occurred several hands in. Much better with 3 than with 4. Just more control.

I couldn't get my mind wrapped around this one, but I think my rating my improve in future attempts.

It seems to work quite well with three players.

The Crow & The Pitcher is an intriguing card game where players attempt to capture Water (Blue), without getting Stones or Pitchers (Black).

Each hand is played with a Pitcher card as a Point marker, Lead determines suit for the Trick, and if the total points of Lead suit cards with values less than the Pitcher's is also less than the Pitcher, low card of suit takes the trick and the Pitcher. Otherwise the high card of suit takes the Trick alone. If Black (Stones) are led then high card takes the Trick, but not the Pitcher.

Higher value cards are lower in Water value, but less likely to capture the Pitcher, Lower value cards are far more likely to capture Pitchers but have more Water to offset that.

It makes for an interesting game, which does reward those who remember cards already played somewhat, but it rewards good hand management more, and avoiding big negatives.

The theme matches the artwork and cards nicely.

On a 1st solo play for basic mechanics I am starting this at a 6.75. I like trick taking games with a twist, and this is a nicely designed one. With more plays this may go up from here; it's a card game with some merit.

I'm not entirely sure if it's a good game or merely okay. I need to play a few more hands to get a better handle on it.

I like the theme and liked the art as well, but this was a fairly uninspired trick taking game that I think most people could do without. There's so many better games out there that do the same kind of thing.
