RevoltaaA

Ducks vs Robots

 

Red Ducks versus Blue Robots is the constellation in this quick card game.

There are 66 cards of values 0 to 5 and each player is dealt 11 cards, another 11 cards form a neutral stack in the middle, an eventual rest is set aside.

In each round you reveal one card from the neutral stack. All players choose a card from their hand and then reveal them simultaneously. The values of all red cards and all blue cards are summed separately and the color with the highest total value is the winning color. In case of a tie the color of the neutral card decides.

Then the trick-winning card in the winning color is determined the card with the lowest value that was played. If there is a tie in this value, the card with second-highest value wins the trick, and so on; if there is no single card, the trick is won by the neutral stack. The trick is then set out for the winner or next to the neutral stack. When four stack have been won in one of the two colors, the game ends immediately with this color being the winning color robots or ducks and you score one point for each trick that you hold in the winning color. Then all players display their hand and score one point per card in this color, the winner is the player with the highest total.

In the version RevoltaaA Bananas cards are not revealed simultaneously, but are played in turn and there is no neutral stack, a new round is lead by the starting player.

RevoltaaA is not a revolutionary game, but a cute, quick, little card game with a nice mechanism for winning a trick, a good filler and also very nice for beginners or to take on holidays.
