This is actually the best introductory/summary thing I have seen so far - and I rarely bother to look at the primers anymore myself (but this one is also entertaining).

  Corrupt Trumps (3-5 players) - rules - use standard 52 card deck
Posted by: gxnpt - 05-05-2018, 03:36 PM - Forum: Meet and Greet - arrange games here - Replies (1)

I admit that (for now) the name is punny but this is not a political game..

  Ariel  Just a card game in the spades/bridge/hearts family.  Ariel

Corrupt Trumps (the card game)


For 3-5 players (ideal with 4 players in two teams)
A bidding and trick taking game. Deal passes clockwise each hand.


Standard deck of 52 cards
- all cards are dealt evenly among the players
-- 3 player game does not use the 2 of spades (51 cards total)
--- 5 player game also does not use the 2 of hearts (50 cards total)


Players bid number of tricks they (or their team) can take and the trump suit.
- begin at dealer's left and go clockwise with each player bidding or passing
-- NO TRUMP exceeds a bid of any suit with the same number of tricks,
   but otherwise a bid must be for more tricks than the previous bid.
--- Bidding continues until all but one player have passed.
    Once passed, a player may not rejoin bidding for that hand.
If all other players pass without bidding, the dealer must bid and cannot also pass.


Play begins with the winning bidder playing a lead card for the first trick.
Subsequent tricks are lead by the taker of the previous trick.
In a trick you must play the lead suit if possible.
Highest card in lead suit (or trump suit) takes the trick.


Player/team with winning bid scores 2 points for each trick taken up to the bid number
- minus 2 points for any missed tricks (if less than bid number are taken)
- minus 1 point for each trick taken that exceeds the bid number.

(bid 4 take 3 = 6-2 = 4 points,
  bid 4 take 5 = 8-1 = 7 points)

Other players/team score 1 point per trick they take.

All players lose points due to corruption from any trump suit cards in the tricks they have taken:
- King of trump suit is -3 points
- Ace & Queen & Jack are each -2 points
- the other trump suit cards are -1 point each


Winner is highest score at game end.

A standard (default settings) game ends when someone reaches +21 or -21 points or after a maximum of 10 hands.

Got way out of my normal heavy games genre on this one - more of a family game.

Sky Pirates and the Quest for Helium

2-6 players, a pick-up-and-deliver game with a large dose of "take that" and "roll&drift" messing with regular movement
game board and a lot of cards are primary components

This is a print-and-play that also needs a couple of sleeves of disposable little souffle sauce cups and a small box of paperclips.

     What if they had better sensors in the singularity (reduced hidden info version of The Singularity Trap) - could the game be done in cardboard again? What about all that paperwork? How can it be eliminated?
     With thanks to those little sauce cups which can stack and eliminated the tracking paperwork we actually did it - I am still reeling from the shock myself.

This clip from Lil Abner - circa 1958 - just seems to fit current politics so well.
