The Nerdz Garage have picked five interesting Kickstarters that they want to back. Some have successfully reached their goal, and some are working their way to the target.
Our first pick is a party game. We have quite a few filler party games, but they are getting tiresome. My hubby started looking for “Doppelkopf”-a game that is one of the most famous German card games. I married into a German family.
We found Doublehead Kids on Kickstarter.
Each player gets 12 cards. Play 12 duels: each player lays a card one after the other.The first player determines with his card the coat of arms to be played. The following players must use the coat of arms if they have it in their hands. If a player cannot apply the required coat of arms, then trump with a king card (crown) or discard another princely card.
The higher-strength same coat of arms wins.
Identical cards: first placed wins.
The players with the prince and princess cards play together as a team, the players without also.
After 12 duels everyone adds up his silver booty, the team members add up their collective booty!
The team with more than 120 silver coins as booty wins!!!
Just that simple but sounds like a fun Family party game. Plus a charming medieval theme!!!
