CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Haggis is a climbing card game for 2-3 in the same family as Zheng Fen and Big Two. It borrows and recombines elements from its parent games (card combinations, bombs, scoring for cards in hand, scoring for cards collected in tricks) and mixes in equally distributed wild cards and betting that you'll be the first to empty your hand of cards. Sean Ross designed Haggis over a number of years, extensively testing over thousands of hands to create a very engaging and balanced game. Gary Simpson has done a masterful job on the original artwork that has to be seen to be appreciated. The 2nd Edition of Haggis will feature the highest quality materials you have come to expect from the top "Euro" game publishers. From the thick, linen finished cards, a practical formed insert and thick box, we have chosen the best manufacturers available to produce this (soon to be) classic game.

(It doesn't use a traditional deck, by the way. It has more suites. You can't use your own standard deck. It's worth the low price it's set at.)
But regarding the gameplay: Haggis is a ladder climbing "trick" taking card game. It is not a traditional trick taking game in that combinations of cards can be led as opposed to a single card. Players are also not forced to play as they always have the option to pass. When a combination is led, players must respond by playing as similar but higher ranking combination. When all players have passed, the last player to play a card takes the "trick" and leads a new combination. There are also certain combinations of cards called "bombs" that "trump" the round. When you play a bomb, you give the captured cards to an opponent, thus giving them some points, but you retake the lead. Timing the play of bombs is essential since the ultimate goal is to shed your hand of cards before your opponent(s). Leaving your opponents with cards in hand is the most efficient way to score large numbers of points.
As stated in the title, this is an excellent two player traditionally styled card game. It is intense, full of anxious moments, and can get mean at times (in a good way). The three player game offers quite a challenge, but I enjoy the two player game the most. For a two player game, I used to play cribbage a bit. But Haggis kicked Cribbage to the curb.
