I've been working on a game for the last couple of months, I've playtested it with lots of different people, but now I'd like to open it up to some of the "hardcore" board game players here, to see if it holds up.

The best way to describe it is: "Feels like Texas Hold'em, but replace the probability with deduction, and it's only for 2 players, and plays in 20-30 minutes".

I know that makes no sense at all surprise

It's not like poker - it just feels like poker, in that it doesn't really matter what you have, it's what you can make your opponent think you have. The deduction aspect is fairly simple, it's just a framework for the bluffing and bidding, really.

The game is simple to learn (5 minutes), and quite a bit of fun. I've had lots of success playing it with the "early-eliminated" players in Texas Hold'em tournaments, our gaming group, my wife, my son, and anyone else I can sucker into a game.

All you need is two decks of cards, and 40 money tokens of some kind.

If you would like to try it out, I would really appreciate it! Just let me know, and I'll send you the rules.

Sounds interesting. I'd like to see it, although I can't promise I'll have time to play it until the weekend.
