Play begins with each player having four beer-mat shaped discs, three flowers and one skull. Each round all players simultaneously choose one card and place it face down in front of them. Then you take turns to either add a card to your stack until the first bet is placed.
When a player bids, the next player can either raise or pass and step out of the round. When there is only one player left in the round, they attempt to find the number of flowers they bid. But there's a catch, they have to start by revealing all of their discs first. If they find the flowers without hitting a skull they get a point. If they fail they lose a card from their hand and a new round starts.
The result is a simple party game they has a real depth of strategy. You may play a skull into your stack and then bluff by bidding to fool other players into thinking you have played no skulls. Or you may use some insight into other player's tactics to accurately guess how many flowers you can find. It's a deceptively simple push-your-luck game with a really fun final reveal when someone wins the bid.
The first time you play it can help if you:
- Play a round with the placed cards face up.
- Try achieving some different size bids to see how tricky it can become.
Play Time: This game will take between 15 minutes and 45 minutes to complete.
