Now this is the one social party game I do like! So easy to play and really funny. The art on the coasters is beautiful, but could just as well be played in a bar with standard coasters or playing cards.Great bluffing game, very easy to teach.
This boils down the bluffing liar's dice and those type games down to what it really should be. I think it might do better than Liar's Dice in all but one area. I think Skull is great with 4-6, maybe even 7 or 8 would be okay. But 9-12. I think it just gets too long and too hard to keep track of what's going on.
This captures captures everything I like about poker in a smaller, cleaner, & quicker package. It may not be as skill intensive, but I 100% prefer it over poker in a casual setting. Beautiful and easy to teach too.
This is a really interesting game. It's an entirely abstract betting game, but so simple and unique. I feel like there are very few groups I wouldn't feel comfortable breaking this out with.
Similar to Liar's Dice, but with the huge addition that players have agency in what cards to play into their piles. This change elevates Skull to a higher level of strategy and deception, which in turn make it a more enjoyable experience.
*** I play this using standard playing cards *** (+) Fast, low downtime, easy to teach, bluffing/bidding done right, creates tension during card reveal (-) Can wear out it's welcome if played too often, the name of the game can turn off some people from wanting to try it
