skull board game

Skull is a bit different. It has some similarities to poker, however, there are some evident differences. Each player gets to have 4 cards in the beginning. 3 cards of roses and 1 skull. Your purpose is to collect as many cards as you can without hitting a skull. So, basically, the game is played this way – you tell how many cards should be taken from a deck. If you get a rose after all those cards are taken, that’s cool – you’re on the winning track. If there’s a skull, you lose one of your cards. So, it is kind of a mixture of good memory, luck, and skill.

The second difference is that this game has a peculiar design. The cards look gorgeous. All in all, this is just more cool cards game for adults. If you are familiar with an ancient version (oh, yes, there is an ancient version and the whole story behind the game), then you’ll certainly want to try it! If not, just read more of it and see whether it suits you.

hanabi board game

Hanabi is a cooperative game. There is a big chance that while traveling you’ll encounter people you know very little about. If this is the case, you will probably want to start your acquaintance with a cooperative vibe rather than a competitive one. Choosing a game like Hanabi then is quite wise!

The goal of the game is to launch the fireworks. The problem is that you have to launch them in darkness. So-called darkness – each player sees only the cards of other players. To reach the goal, you have to communicate the cards to all the players. It is hard! It requires memory but you’ll most definitely overcome this challenge. Check out Amazon to see more details about the game. It is a great choice.
