The Bottle Imp is a trick-taking card game Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's short story.
Down goes the price and up goes the risk. Take advantage of the evil powers of the Bottle and finally impose it on an opponent in this tricky card game. The appealing cards provide the right atmosphere for a devilishly good time.
As with many other trick-taking card games, the idea is to acquire the most points.
However, in The Bottle Imp, the highest card does not always take the trick. The player with the highest valued card that is below the current price of the Bottle Imp receives the trick and also the Bottle Imp. The value of the Bottle Imp falls to the value of the winning card.
The owner of the Bottle Imp changes until its value can no longer be undercut. Whoever owns the Bottle Imp at the end of the game receives minus points instead of positive points.
