Find the roses and avoid the skulls with only daring bluffs and raw grit.
Tension mounts as you play your cards, one at a time, around the table and around again. Do you dare to try your luck? Will you raise the stakes or fold under the heat? Do you have the guts to make a grab for the rose, or will you back down and hope your foes get stuck with the grinning skull?
In Skull & Roses, the game of crafty bluffs and steel nerves, you’ll take turns placing your cards in front of you, hidden to everyone but yourself. Slap down your roses or sneak your skull into the pile. When the time is right, muster your courage and challenge for the right to start flipping cards. Bid high to scare off the competition, or bid low to make someone else raise the stakes. But most of all, hide your tells and bluff like there’s no tomorrow, because in this game, guessing right is just as important as making everyone else guess wrong. It only takes two successful challenges to win the game, but can you find the roses before you wind up holding the skull?
Skull & Roses is a tense game of tactics, strategy and plain-old bluffing your heart out. Gritty art inspired by biker tattoos will draw you into the game, and easy rules will have you playing right away. It’s bold and smart and most of all, it’s just plain fun.
