I want a fun, pure bluffing game but cant make my mind up whether to go for this or Skull & Roses. Any thoughts or recommendations would be welcome!

thanks!

I haven't played Skulls and Roses, but you can't get more pure bluffing than Kakerlakenpoker. And it's hilarious as well, when you want it to be.

We own both, and play this one more often.

FWIW S&R seemed to have a few more odd rule cases which confuse new players.

I own both and don't think that you can go wrong with either. Both are pure bluffing with simple rules and always produce laughter around the table. I guess the main difference is whether you want a game where one person loses (KP) or a game where one person wins (S&R).

Buy "Kakerlakenpoker: Royal Edition" and play both! Royals are skulls. Non-royals are roses.
