We are proud to introduce today Guildes, a draft+majority card game from Fred Bizet, published by Bad Taste Games.
Play it now.
Guildes is a card game played in 3 rounds with 10 different kind of cards. Each round starts with a draft phase (you keep one card, and give the rest to your neighbor), and ends with a playing phase during which you play all cards one by one, simultaneously, except 2 of them that will be discarded.
At the end of each round, there is a scoring. For the first round scoring we are using the numbers at the top left of the cards; for the second round scoring the numbers at the top-center of the cards; and for the third round scoring the numbers at the top-right of the cards. For each scoring, the player with the most cards of each type scores the highest number, then eventually players ranking 2nd, 3rd (and sometimes 4th) also get points.
And this is it for the base game! Once you have mastered it, you can play with the 2 variants, introducing respectively special events and special powers.
Guildes is a very nice, pleasant and fast card game, and is very, very easy to learn. We had a lot of pleasure discovering and playing this game, and we hope you'll enjoy it too!
