Nominated for the 2015 Spiel Des Jahres (Game of the Year) The Game is a co-operative card game for 1-5 players. In The Game, you’ll have to work together with your friends to play cards into one of four different piles, with the hopes of discarding all 98 cards. The trick is, you aren’t allowed to tell anyone else what cards you have, so you’ll constantly be on edge as each card played could upset your best-laid plans. For 1-5 players aged 8+, takes 20 minutes. Easy to explain and grasp. English version of the German original “Spiel…so lange du kannst!” by Steffen Benndorf. A favourite for taking down the pub and mulling over a pint with. See also The Mind, a similar game.
This edition includes the “On Fire” expansion. 6 extra fire cards 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, and 77 which must be covered at the end of the next player’s turn to avoid losing the game.
