25 Great Games Like Skull

Our experts have spent time searching for great games similar to Skull and have found the following:

Skull is a push-your-luck card game where you try and guess how many other players just laid skulls rather than flowers. The clever bit is that you progressively bid on how many cards you think you can guess right. If you win, you then have to flip over the number of cards you bid without hitting a skull. It's a clever spin on Bridge where you must balance the achievability of your bids with pushing other players to bid too high.

Unfortunately, Skull is not available on Android, Mac, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S or iOS. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme:
