Skull King is the most cunning and conniving game in Grandpa Becks collection!
Fans of trick-taking games like Hearts, Euchre, Wizard, or Whist, will love Skull King. The best trick taking game is now better than ever! It is competitive, rowdy, and exciting. With mechanics derived and then enhanced from classic set collection games, Skull King is considered by many to be the ruler of all bidding games!
This new version includes all the original cards and rules - with refreshed artwork - plus new expansion cards and optional rules that dial up the intensity even more! Mermaids, Loot, the Kraken, and new special powers for each of the pirates add fresh intrigue. A new scorepad lets you adjust the number of cards and rounds each game.
Predict each round how many tricks you think you can win after taking a look at your cards. Get your bid correct and you'll gain points! Get it wrong, and you're out of luck!
Crafty, strategic, scheming, and conniving are all words that describe pirates. They also describe the people that love this game. Rogues and rascals, this game is for you!
