A card game specifically designed for courting couples and their chaperone…their what?
The idea for this original NewVenture card game comes from the late Victorian-era practice of courting couples always have a mature third person with them. This third party would ensure that nothing “unacceptable” wouls transpire between the amorous couple during their time together. Three-player parlor games offered way to acknowledge the chaperone’s presence without offence, and still have a little fun.
The game itself is a blind-bidding game in which players use their cards to try to win “Fan” cards (another essential fashion accessory of the period). These Fan cards are not only the players’ score, but may be sacrificed to win still more Fan cards.
(You don’t have to be a courting couple to play BB&B — just three folks with a few minutes to play a quick card game.)
This video teaches how to play the card game “Tesla – Master of Lightning” from NewVenture Games. This is a blind-bidding, trick-taking, deck-building card game in which players compete to win and use “good” cards and avoid the “bad” cards. The objective is to collect scoring cards which represent millions on Volts at the end of the game. Available from Red Hen Toys.
Battlefield brings medieval armies together in a clash of forces. Each of the two players have a deck of 72 cards representing military units such as Archers, Swordsmen, Cavaliers and Knights. They are joined by the Royal Family and Clerics who inspire their troops. As on any Battlefield, there are events that effect the outcome – some help and some hinder. Available from Red Hen Toys.
In addition, this video introduces two other versions of the game.
The American Civil War edition includes Generals, Infantry, and all units in between. Artillery, Sharpshooters, Spies, and the Corps of Engineers all add to the action in defense of their chosen cause. Play the Union or the Confederacy in an equally balanced confrontation.
