a proud, spoilt bird


A peacock is, as everybody knows, a very beautiful and proud bird. Therefore, you must offer him pomp and luxurious gifts to attract him to your side. All the gifts and luxuries are represented by cards in the game, the higher their value the more luxurious and the more interesting for the peacock. Each player has a deck of 14 cards of a color and values 1 to 7.

You shuffle your deck, set it out face-down and draw five cards for your hand. The peacock begins the game in the middle of the board. In each round, each player puts one card face-down on the table and then all cards are revealed simultaneously. If you played the highest card and the peacock sits in the middle or on a peacock eye of your color, you advance him outwards by one step. If you played the highest card and the peacock sits on an eye of another color, you move the peacock along the tracks to your color segment to the eye on the same level.

Identical numbers cancel each other, their owners are out of the round. If such a tie happens with the highest value of the round, the player with the next higher card moves the peacock. Then all cards played in that round are set aside, you draw a card from your deck in hand and play a card for the next round. Whoever can move the peacock on his peacock eye in the outermost circle, wins.

Simple, simpler, most simple - this is a fast and visually very attractive card game with a nice story and easy rules; a game for primary school children to play on their own, a game for holidays and as a filler; a bit of card memory is useful, the game is handy and attractively packed - simply nice!
