The cards were very colorful and appropriately themed. I had no problems making out the values on the cards despite my relatively poor eyesight. I did take issue with the manual, however. I found it confusing and had to re-read it a number of times to get a handle on what was going on. The information, at least to me, just seemed to be unorganized and scattered. For example, the bottom portion of the first PDF page instructs players to “flip a card from the top of the deck and put it into a Safety pile”. That gave me the impression that I could put the card in any of three piles I wanted. Later, on the second page, it says “the first Number card you flip over is put into the first Safety pile”. As such, some of the information seemed either redundant or misleading.
Once I understood the rules however, I began to appreciate the game a bit more. It’s relatively simple, but the push-your-luck mechanics keeps things interesting. There’s also some light strategy present in the form of how you can safely handle Ugh! cards. While it’s obvious that you’ll want high valued cards so that you can get more points when locking in sets, but having a few 1’s on hand of varying colors will give you some “redshirt” cards to safely toss away should you draw an Ugh! card. Of course, you may never draw an Ugh! card, so there’s some risk in taking those 1’s over say, a 4 or 5. Speaking of which, there are more lower numbered cards than higher numbered cards, so if you’re good with counting cards and calculating odds, you’ll have an edge over the other players.
As such, “Ugh!” offers more than just a press-your-luck experience.Read more ›

Ugh!, by Calliope Games, is a set collection game with player controlled risk vs. reward elements and hand/resource management thrown in for good measure. Players are required to accept a certain level of risk to play but must be willing to push the limits in order to compete and win. Of course, knowing when there is too much at risk is the key. Since player-owned cards are always visible to all the players, this game serves as an excellent introduction to "card counting" and understanding the information at the table to help players make logical and critical decisions. Read the table right and you are on your way to victory! Read it wrong, and you'll be saying "Ugh!", followed by a well deserved self-smiting to the brow.
Ugh! is comprised of a deck of 110 cards. The deck includes three different card types. These are Wild cards, Ugh! cards, and Number cards. The cards are illustrated with Cavemen, Cavewomen, dinosaurs, and prehistoric mammals and are meant to be humorous, which they are. Fans of Dork Tower will immediately recognize John Kovalic's illustrations on all the cards.Read more ›
