Tichu comes in a simple red box (the lid is the main "face" of the box). I would have preferred a different box design because this one makes it easy to accidentally spill all of the cards (probably a good idea to use some kind of string or rubber band to avoid this or else keep the cards in a different container entirely). There are 2 packs of 56 cards each (52 normal cards plus 4 special cards): one pack has a red backing, one pack has a brown (gold?) backing. The pattern on the back of the cards is a grid of white Chinese characters. The cards include all the normal ranks A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A as well as four special cards: the Mahjong, the Hound, the Phoenix, and the Dragon (explained below). Instead of the normal suits Tichu features: Jade (green), Swords (black), Pagodas (blue), and Stars (red). The face cards of each suit have unique graphics (which you can find images of elsewhere online if you're really curious). The instructions explain the rules for 3, 4, and 6 player versions of Tichu as well as a game called Grand Seigneur for 5-12 players. The writing is clear, has interesting tidbits, and is occasionally funny. I have only played the 4 player version and the other versions seem like they wouldn't work as well (especially Grand Seigneur which is not partner-based and seems extremely unbalanced but who knows).
Tichu Nanking (4 Players):
The game is a trick-based game played by two pairs of partners. Each player starts with 14 random cards and passes one card of their choosing to each of the other players. The object of the game is to be the first to play all your cards.Read more ›
