The second of this year's twelve Pairs games is out, this time titled "Fancy"!

https://www.gametrademagazine.com/Home/1/1/58/591?articleID=...

I haven't had a chance to try it yet (or Nine Virtues for that matter), anyone else?

We got Fancy to the table last night and everyone enjoyed it. On the surface it looks pretty simple but there is strategy to what you play each trick, do you undercut someone else, do you make a pair to knock someone out of making a big play, do you shed one of your low cards? Looking forward to getting in more plays!

Looking at the rules, it says that you only discard the duplicate cards played afterwards in the event of a pair. So you making a pair would only affect you, not the original card. Unless I'm missing something?

Fancy looks like a cool variant, I'm looking forward to getting it to the table. We had fun with Nine Virtues but we feel it needs 4 or more players. It fell a little bit flat at 3.
