My favorite Bruno Faidutti game. Dwarf king is like a grown up, tempered flux with trick taking. There are three suits, dwarves goblins and humans, and you spend a series of rounds trying to take tricks and earn enough points to win. The twist though is that at the beginning of each new round, when players are dealt a new hand, one of the players gets to select from a randomly generated pair of rules that define what tricks are worth in the round. So the objective is always changing. Sometimes you are trying to collect points by getting x type of sets, sometimes you are trying not to take sets because y sets are worth negative points so you want your opponents to take the hit. To top it off, there is a special card each round that adds a little more variety to the game. The dwarf king is truly a king among trick taking games.

I haven't been this excited about a game purchase in a while. I absolutely can't wait to play this!

Played at lunch today for the first time. Everybody loved it. Huzzah! I think this'll get a lot of play.

And Brooke has now played in a game of Dwarf King. She wasn't too crazy about it, as she doesn't like trick-taking games all that much, nor does she like the negative points in many of the goals. I don't expect that should kill the game for us, but it's a shame she doesn't like it.

Faidutti does trick-taking. It seems that is the formula for my favorite trick-taking game. This game has managed to climb to the top of my list in a genre where I already loved dozens of games. The gameplay is so basic but just adding a single special card into each hand, and changing the goal for each hand turns it into something special. In fact each hand is like its own game. You may try taking all the tricks one hand, and then shoot to take none the next hand. There are even hands where a single trick is all that matters. There can occasionally be a runaway leader, or someone who falls so far behind that they can't hope to catch up, but the game is relatively quick so that doesn't sting too bad. You have to love chaos to like this game, though. There are many times when even playing your cards the best you can will not prevent you from taking an 8-point penalty or worse. Personally that suits my personality just fine, so I find it to be an amazingly fun little game. My only complaint is that I want more variety, like an expansion with more special cards and goals.

Played for the first time. Really enjoyed this trick taking game. I had fun every round.

Thing that I enjoy about this game is each round is different.

There is one different special card each round with interesting powers and the quest tile which also changes each round is also great which varies the number of points each round.

One round you can get positive points, another round you can get negative points. So each round have different objectives.

Beautiful artwork and the simple elements added to increase replayability work very well. Unfortunately the game couldn't overcome my disinterest in trick taking games.

Update-
A few plays with gamers who really love trick taking games has changed my perspective on this. I'm terrible at this game but I can now participate its depth...
