Very addictive quick card game

This game is awesome. It is very quick with a game usually lasting only a few minutes. It is easy to learn, addictive, and fun. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

A minor classic

Many two-player games have been published in Germany over the past ten or fifteen years, many of them published by Kosmos. Some of these have become quite well-known, with the most famous being Reiner Knizia's Lost Cities. While it is a good game, and a good gateway game playable by almost anyone, Lost Cities suffers from a low degree of interaction between the players.

Tricky Chicken, from the fertile mind of Michael Schacht, was never as famous in its card game incarnation, which is a real shame since it is a superior game in almost every way. It is a form of rummy with nine suits, each having a different number of cards and having a value equal to the number of cards. On your turn you draw two cards, taking them from two different stacks, selected from the two face-down draw deck and the two face-up discard piles. The player must then either meld a set or discard one card to one of the discard stacks.

What makes this chicken so tricky is that only the first meld (of two or more cards) of a value can be set down without any problem. After that, it can only be knocked out of play by putting down a larger meld of the same type. You may have just melded a set of 4 20's, but if your opponent puts down a set of 5 or more 20's, your set goes to the discard pile. The game ends when a meld of each of the nine suits has been played, or when one player has six different melds.

The game plays quickly and the AI can be pretty tough. While the graphics aren't at all flashy, they really don't need to be for this type of game. It simply excels as a fun and reasonably thoughtful diversion. My only suggestions would be the inclusion of hotseat play and online play against other people, but the game is well worth it as is. Highly recommended.

I love this game! It's not another cookie cutter card game, it makes you think. I'm addicted.
