Duple is the hilarious follow up to anomia from the tiny publisher last year. It comprises a fun, fast-paced word game that can be shoved in a purse/pocket and played anywhere.
Set-up is somewhat easy, asking the players to stack the two decks of letter cards with Category and Wild Cards popping up every few turns. One Category and one Wild are revealed to begin the game.
Players, in quick succession, flip cards from the stack in front of themselves facing up. Each card has a letter and a symbol. As soon as two symbols ont he table match, the players with the matching cards race to name a word using the category shown and comprising both of the letters from their card. The player who is quickest to name a word will take their opponents card and place it face-down in their pile of winnings. If the card below the one which last left the table creates a new match, those two players must faceoff before play can continue.
Wild cards connect to symbols to cause face-offs that wouldn't normally match. Each new wild or category card will replace the previous one shown in the center of the table.
The game is played until both decks have been depleted. the player who has earned the most cards is the winner!!
Overall this is the game I can bring out to liven up a party, to break the ice or to wait until a show/concert is going to start. Cannot beat it for the price!
