Cobras

Project image

Cobras is a trick-taking game for 1-5 players (from our friends at Cardboard Edison!) where knowing when to win a trick is key to winning. Players must lose tricks to collect cobras, then win a trick to exchange them for points. Timing things just right is the game’s core challenge, and if you push your luck too far, you might get bit!

Each trick, the losing players divvy up the cobras shown on the cards played that trick and place cobra tokens on their basket. The winning player empties their basket for points, according to a scale that rewards more points for more cobras-then drops off steeply if you’ve pushed your luck too far!

Cobras is for 1-5 players and is available on Kickstarter now for just $16 (US)!
