About The Dwarf King:

1) What is it?
The Dwarf King is a trick-taking game, in which players score points accordingly to goals, that are different each round. Some cards have special powers when played (like giving extra points, or taking cards from someone's hand in exchange of others from yours, and even allowing players to change the hand of cards one have with someone else).

Trick-taking, by nature, are a genre with games that range from ok to little control, even when the cards don't have special abilities that change the play course. When those are added, is possible to: a) increase control; b) increase chaos. Almost all trick-taking games I know that have cards with special powers went to the B route (more chaos). The Dwarf King is no exception.

The cards that allow players to exchange hands (one is always present and other is an special card) simply almost destroy the chances someone to plan ahead, as there is no way to know if you are going to keep the cards you are seeing for one, two, three tricks. You can lose the cards at anytime and receive a completely new hand. Yes, the player that has the card that make the players exchange hands do have more saying, and can use the early tricks in order to make her hand trashier as possible before giving them away. Still, being a trick-taking in which players must follow suit, this isn't always possible: if the suit is pulled, you might just need to play the card without being able to really prepare.

The Dwarf King is similar to Chronicle, as in both there are cards with special powers and the goal of the round changing each rounds.

2nd hand. Blue Peg, Pink Peg keep going on about it, and it sounds about the level of Félagsvist with a twist.

A fun Bruno Faidutti game. Complete. Has been played several times and the cards do have a little browning on the edges. All else is very tidy.

Two new games this month, both trick-takers. They were both just OK, this one probably more interesting but a little swingy perhaps, while Hattrick was fun but felt a little stuck in second gear. I'd play both again, but I have better.

Moved on to this which is entirely random and swingy. In other, totally unrelated news I lost with a grand total of -16.

Managed an eveningof trick-aking games at LoB and our second game was the first new one to me. I've been wanting to get a copy for a while although not 100% convinced I will after this. It's good and I'm terrible at it, but the variable scoring cards don't seem to work as smoothly as, say, in Chronicle and it felt quite swingy in some ways. Some of the cards are clearly more interesting than others, too. But I may just be bitter. Would like to play again.

Like new played a couple of times with sleeved cards. Removed sleeves for the auction as they are quite expensive

English edition

Also no insert because sleeved cards did not fit with them
