Suggestion: Any chance of pre-known trump variant?

Post by _MJL_ » 07 September 2020, 23:06

When i have played this with my family as a kid we used to flip one of the kings over before bidding to determine a random trump suit.

I have always found that to be a more strategic variant as you make your bid knowing the trump suite.

Would there be any chance of getting that implemented here?

It's a great little card game but i find it too random the with the high bidder determines trump version here.

Thanks

I believe you're describing Oh-Seven's parent, Oh Hell!, which has been on BGA since 2016. You are right in observing that the increased uncertainty in Oh-Seven makes luck a greater factor—in fact, the designer's original name for it was "Bloody Hell!"
