Skull - the purest edition of Skull, brought back from the ends of the earth by the author's ancestors!
Lucky are the novices who now have the chance to discover one of the greatest bluffing games of the 2nd millennium!
Skull is the quintessenial bluffing game. Players each play a card face-down, then each player in turn adds another card ? until someone feels safe enough to state that he can turn a number of cards face up and get only roses. Other players can outbid him, saying they can turn even more roses face up.?
The highest bidder must then turn that number of cards face up, starting with his own. If he shows only roses, he wins; if he reveals a skull, he loses, removing one of his cards from play. Two successful challenges wins the game. Skull is not a game of luck; it's a game of poker face and reading your opponents.
Skull can be combined with Skull & Roses and/or Skull & Roses Red to allow more than six to play.
