"Aw, does the poor baby need a... TICHU!"

New favourite card game: Tichu. Four players in two partnerships. One simple deck of cards. Plays like many climbing games (see Presidents & Assholes or The Great Dalmuti) but with a few twists. There are point cards as in hearts and four special cards which throw a wrench in everything. As well, the types of sets you can lead come in many varieties.

What this makes is a VERY strategic card game with just the right amount of chaos. Think Wizard but a bit heavier. And quite possibly better.

We're heading to the cottage this weekend so I imagine many rounds of this will be played. I'll also be bringing Macao and Hansa Teutonica which have been waiting for test drives. Should be fun.


  1. Ooh, bring it home with you next time you come! It sounds right up my alley!

  4. Coach Outlet Store Online, and that she sells and buys her used Coach Factory Outlet quite frequently. And while you may look at the Coach Outlet Online and think that she has bought it around a month back, because it looks just a little used, chances are that she actually got a used Coach Outlet Online yesterday from a previous owner who actually used the Coach Factory Outlet
