Absolutely beautiful but also beautifully dull. Maybe the game is more fun if you're drunk and in a bar? But then you'd have to be in a bar. We finished playing and there was a collective "that wasn't fun".
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
