Product Description


Your cauldron bubbleth over. The broth needs onion and sausage, but you're stuck with a mittful of cabbage and peas. What to do? Simmer down; if you're between a rock and a hard place, you'll just have to bluff your way through this recipe. And with Stone Soup, Gamewright's game du jour, the house special is deception, sneakiness, and crafty culinary card-play. Based loosely on the old folktale whereby reluctant villagers were enticed to enhance a "delicious soup of water and stones" by adding "just one more vegetable," Stone Soup consists of a 54-card ingredient deck dealt out and composing a consommé that must be assembled--in specific ingredient order--by placing cards face-down into the pot and hoping that no one calls a bluff. Oh, sure, it's delicious when tomatoes are called for and you have two tomato cards, but what do you do with your Stone cards except hope to sneak them in, face-down, by announcing "Here are four tomatoes!" Get busted and the penalty is severe: take all cards in the pot. Ditch 'em all, either by evading challenges to discards, or by completely honest card-play, and the only thing missing from your victory bouillon is salt and pebble... uh, pepper. --Tony Mason

From the Manufacturer

How You Play Soup's on! Follow the sequence and take turns adding food cards to the pot. First potatoes, then tomatoes, and so on. Out of the right ingredient? Pass your turn with a dash-of-salt card or dare to bluff. You'll have to sneak to get rid of your stone cards ? slip one into the pot and double your risk. Be the first to play all of your cards and win. When the game is over, follow Sally Sampson's Stoneless Stone Soup recipe to cook up a real pot of soup! What You Learn A bluffing card game, Stone Soup helps children plan ahead and predict, read other people's faces, and learn when to take a risk. Bluffing is a skill that most children begin to develop at about age eight. Once they discover there are clues to what others may be thinking, and that they can fool them sometimes, they become fascinated by the bluff. Stone Soup lightens the deception with a warm and humorous narrative from the familiar folk tale. Awards National Parenting Publication Association (NAPPA) Honors 1996.

This is a great introductory game to bluffing. The idea of the game is simple: players put down cards (face down) according to a certain order--potatoes cards, tomatoes cards etc. (all ingredients for making a good soup). There are stone cards in the deck. The goal of the game is to get rid of all of one's cards. Bluffing comes in when one must get rid of stone cards or other unwanted cards. For example, if it is my turn and the turn calls for tomato cards, but I don't have tomato cards, I may put a potato card down and declare it a tomato card. Others may let me pass or they may call my bluff (Stone Soup!).
The game is for 8 and up and for once I agree with Gamewright. I played it with my 5 and 7 year olds. My 7 year old understands the concept, but her face often gives her away. My 5 year old sighed at the end that he "always lost". He was putting down 10 tomato cards when there are a total of 4 in the deck. With time, they may learn to play better, but I can see us having a great time when they are older. We will probably have more fun when we have more people playing.

I played this game with my two sisters (in their twenties) and we had a blast. It's a simple game of pure bluff and dare. I'd rather play this with a group of people than say - something like UNO, or Old Maid . . . whatever.
