We played this game from Randy's collection to honor him.

This was a fairly simple blind auction game. It has a fair amount of chaos in it, but it is fairly short.

Like can't stop this is a game that should be in each collection.
Perfect filler that plays up to five people.
The revealing of cards has a similar excitement level as rolling dice.

German first edition, complete and very good condition, $1.23 at flea market. Also got a slightly incomplete Up the River for $0.61 to salvage the wooden ships.

And hold on... what's that on the stack next to Istanbul?

Raj... box is a bit dished on the bottom but inside... complete with the cards still sealed in plastic. $2.92 from 2nd Mile.

Delighted! Been wanting to find a copy of this.

Nope, I'm not dead... yet.

Finishing up a 7 week stretch of training with a week in-house, which gives me a little time, finally, to do some posting.

The items I discovered this week, I'll note, but some of the others have been found in the last week or two and I really don't remember when they were found so...

Raj I discovered yesterday for 75 cents at DI. This one is complete.

BGG Comments: Almost too simple to be a game, but the metagame is very strong, as you spend each of your brief turns bluffing and second guessing your opponents' intentions. Best played over a series of rounds (e.g. to 71 points).

My Rating: 7.9

This game is the American re-issue of Alex Randolph's amazingly brilliant mechanism: the simultaneous reveal, where ties cancel. It's one of those things in gaming you figure was just always there, like rolling dice, moving a marker from space to space on a board, or high-card-wins in a tick-taking game. But no, I think Randolph invented it for Hol's der Geier. Then it was a simple card game. For once, an American publisher made it BETTER for the mass market here, replacing the scoring cards with scoring tiles, and giving it the barest of themes. When we were first discovering German games in the 1990s, Raj was one of the few titles you could go buy at an American shopping mall (back when those had toy & game stores). There have been times I've thought about getting rid of this game, because it seems so slight. But then we play it again, and it's a crowd-pleaser. Best with 4-5 players.

PS-Somewhere in my collection I own Sid Sackson's personal copy of Hol's der Geier, which I acquired as part of his estate sale. It has a little note from Alex Randolph to Sid inside, maybe just Randolph's signature. I should try to find that.

Originally published as Raj, Hol's der Geier is a boiled down card game of bluffing. The BGG description says it all:

Players are given an equal deck of cards from one to fifteen. Each turn, a prize tile is randomly selected from a pool. The prize tile either has positive or negative points, and each player is attempting to gather the most positive points from these prizes. Players secretly select one of their remaining fifteen cards, and reveal them simultaneously. The highest card gets the prize (if positive), or the lowest card get the prize (if negative). However, if two people play the highest (or lowest) card, they cancel each other out and the prize goes to the next in line...

It sounds like nothing, but it's a great exercise in second-guessing for up to 5 in about 10-15 minutes.

Otherwise known as Raj. This game distils For Sale into its purest form.

Just one 60 card deck and a game lasts 5 minutes. And the rules can be explained to a 7 year old in 30 seconds. What's more it is very entertaining. This is my family's second fave pre-meal Cafe game, after the brilliant Pairs.



Ticks all the boxes.
