My new game Thrown is soon to hit the market, published by WizKids. Following on from my previous trick taking game, Pikoko (a trick taking game where you can't see your own cards), Thrown has another huge twist on trick-taking: your cards are replaced with dice!

In this little retrospective, I talk about the process of making the game.

I'll be live on Youtube tomorrow at 4pm UK time, to talk about games and game design (I'm sure Pikoko, Doodle Rush and Big Bazar will feature...) and whatever else you want to ask me about.


It's my first time doing a live stream, so there may not be many of us, but it'll be nice to chat with you anyway!

In celebration of the release of my first trick-taking game Pikoko, this video is a guide to the ancient genre. It's not just a top ten trick-taking games. It's a...

- Beginners Guide to Trick Taking Games
- A brief history of Trick Taking Games
- An overview of 18 of my favourite Trick Taking Games
- A guide for designers and players to the mechanisms used in the many, many trick taking games on the market.

Is Honshū really a trick-taking game? Is a climbing game a sub-set of trick-taking? Or a totally different genre altogether? Argue below They all share a common ancestor (probably) so we can all be right! Even if we totally disagree.



I have another trick taking game coming out in 2019. But that's a story for another day...
