Haggis is the second entry in the Postcard Box Games series, and was designed by Sean Ross. It is not a trick-taking game in the conventional sense, but is part of the climbing game family, along with the immensely popular Tichu, which can rightly be considered an esteemed parent of Haggis. Unlike Tichu, which excels as a partnership game for four players, Haggis is designed for 2-3 players, and is widely regarded as doing a superb job of bringing Tichu-like play to a table with less players.

The object of the game is to try to be the first to empty your hand of cards, thus earning points for the cards left in your opponent's hand. In the course of play, you capture the specific scoring cards in the tricks you win. But to really ramp up the fun factor and the excitement, the points that you acquire in this fashion can be further supplemented by betting that you will be the first player to divest yourself of all of your cards. The `betting' at the start of each round just increases the stakes and adds to the tension. Tricks require playing combinations of cards like sets and sequences - concepts that will be somewhat familiar from games like Rummy. But in Haggis each player also starts with three wild cards, and not only can these help you make sets and sequences, but they can also be played together as `Bombs' - essentially big trumps that beat all other combinations of cards, and virtually guarantee you the trick. Bombs help you retain the lead, but come at the cost of giving up the cards from that trick to your opponent. In most cases retaining the lead is worth this cost, because it can help you ensure that you go out first, and so make your bet or stop your opponent making his.

I was excited to see a Tichu-esque game that'd work with less than 4. With about two hours of 3-player action so far, I can definitely say I enjoy the game, though 1 person bidding is a little strange when your 2 opponents can usually team up and bomb-stop you.

After about 1 hour of play (and shuffling), however, my cards are already in terrible shape. Doing a bridge-type shuffle made a big permanent crease in the middle of the cards, and some of the card edges have small frays. Hopefully future printings will convert to materials as durable as a standard 99-cent pack of cards.

There aren't many card games that require the same skill and strategy as Bridge or Poker, but can be played with only two or three people. In fact, Haggis combines elements of both...but it's a little more exciting and, for me, more addictive.

This is one of those games that is easy to learn and might take years to master. More importantly, it's NOT one of those games that you buy, play once, and then stick on a shelf to gather dust.

I definitely recommend the Haggis! (And how often do you hear those words?)

I have been very pleased with this so far. It is one of the better card games you can play with two or three players (a rarity in the world of card games). The rules are simple enough, but the strategy is very "heavy", and it rewards deep competitive play.

Bought this so I could teach my wife how to play Tichu with just two of us. Nice little game, though going to the suggested scores kind of seems like it drags on- perhaps we don't bet enough, but it doesn't quite have the same replay value as Tichu- perhaps it's also the difference between the player interactions of 2 players vs. 4 players. If you like Tichu, you should own this for when you don't have 4.

This game is hands-down fun and addictive. With 2 player the game takes a pleasant amount of strategy and deduction. With 3 players, the game is amazingly fun and yet as strategic. I know I have had times when there are 2 of my friends with me and we are craving to play Tichu but we just do not have that 4th person. If you have similar situations worry not; this game should satisfy that hunger with just the three or two you. If you love card climbing games such as Tichu then you should give this magnificent game a go.
