Yes, Reiner Knizia does revisit some of his ideas time after time. The question is, is that a problem if he can add something new to the idea again and again?

This time let's have a look at the games based on a seemingly simple, but ingenious idea. Two players are figthing for tricks with poker or rummy combinations, or maybe only with numbered cards; higher combination or highest total sum wins. The idea that makes this very interesting is that you are placing cards to several tricks at the same time, all the time having the possibility to choose where to play a card from your hand. I think Knizia lists these games under the category "Category games".
