Just played No Thanks! (Geschenkt) this weekend...and almost split my side laughing. Just learning it, playing with three guys, as we played and began to realize strategies...how 'winning' a nice linked set amounts to a loss after all...getting excited about grabbing a card negated by a lower consecutive card, then realizing at the end I had all the cards...I still laugh out loud about it. It's such a simple game, yet such a funny expose' of human nature...and a reversal of traditional card game stradegy...too funny. Buy it if you want some laughs. Or maybe I'm just odd.

Anybody else fallen out laughing over Geschenkt?

How does this amount to a loss? Acquiring consecutively linked cards is the best way to avoid racking up points while conserving your chips.

I agree with you, it's a great game with a unique mechanic... but it never occured to me that humor was attribute of this game. But hey, anything that can make you laugh is always a good thing

The problem with the new version is the BEST name for the game is the "International" Edition published in Europe: No Mercí!

Can't beat the double language pun! cool
