Hand management games are games with cards in them that reward players for playing the cards in certain sequences or groups. The optimal sequence/grouping may vary, depending on board position, cards held and cards played by opponents. Managing your hand means gaining the most value out of available cards under given circumstances. Cards often have multiple uses in the game, further obfuscating an "optimal" sequence.
Pnp, This game is amazing. Just sat down and played it twice in a row. It may be too early to say but it just might be my number 1 solo game. Exactly what I want for a relaxing night of destressing and it is so cute! I don't know how he managed to make a solo trick taking game but I am glad he did. Takes me back to family Euchre tournaments as a kid. Highly recommended. Will be buying the gamecrafter printing for sure. Edit: After playing it almost a dozen times in the last 4 days, this game has solidified in my top 3. As soon I turned those cards over and started playing the advanced game, it had me for sure. If you are a solo gamer and love trick taking, this is one to check out. Just ordered it from gamecrafters. The hardest part will be waiting patiently with my terribly printed version while the pristinely printed cards take a month or more to ship to Thailand. It will be worth the wait and I will play my home version to pieces in the meantime. Final Edit: The cards arrived and they are beautiful! I love this game more after a month of playing almost every day than that first day. It is my go to game to relax at the end of the day.
This game is pretty awesome. The graphic design, artwork, and production quality are all top notch, and so clean and user friendly. This was obviously designed and created by people who have a deep love of card games. The gameplay is quite satisfying, using the right card abilities at the right time to turn a seemingly dire hand into a winner against all odds makes you feel clever. It feels like this game is a good way to practice analyzing trick taking hands and figuring out the strengths and weaknesses. It’s a fun one, looking forward to more plays.
