How to Play
Shuffle and Deal
Shuffle 33 cards and deal 13 to each player leaving 7 for the draw deck. Reveal the top from the deck and that is the decree card which might be used with some special abilities and serves as trump.
Leading and Following
The non-dealer leads on the first trick of the round. After that, the winner of one trick will lead the following trick. The lead card is the lead suit and the follower must play the same suit as the lead suit, if able.
Determine the Winner of the Trick
After both cards have been played and abilities activated (if able) there is a winner. Typically the highest ranked card will win. However, the trump will always win if it is played. The winner collects the cards and the trick is set aside.
End of Round
After all 13 tricks have been played, count how many tricks each player has collected. Players will gain points based on how many tricks they have won. Don't get too greedy or you might get no points.

Based on the item page I thought this was a game with every card having powers (like Love Letter, Brave Rats, etc) but no, some of the cards are just regular playing cards of a suite. Since there are only three suites and the suites are simplified the game has to be very well balanced to pull this off and it does. Gameplay is easy to learn smooth, and enjoyable. It's a little tricky to figure out if you want to win or lose every hand but that's where the strategy comes in (is the other player letting you win or trying to beat you?). You are supposed to play for a certain number of points/rounds but you can just play one round if you feel like it or keep playing if you're having fun, and that's a nice feature.
I love the artwork but I just wish there was more of it or way I wish the unusual art was played up a bit more (the young girl wood-cutter was my favorite). Likewise I like the theme, I just wish there was more (maybe a complete story of some sort that playing the game helps to tell?).
As it is, the 75% greatness of this game that feels a little incomplete is solidified by the fact that it's well balanced, high quality, and CHEAP. If the price were higher I would subtract a few points based on the fact that the game could be fleshed out a little, but at this price it's a steal. Grab it and enjoy along with Lost Cities and Guillotine.
When it comes to the strategy, it's more of a "reacting" game than a "planning" game—you react to the cards you have in your hand and what your opponent plays vs having a plan from the start—this can be good or bad, depending on the person.
Overall, my fiancee and I have played several times since buying it and we continue to enjoy it. It's not so compelling that you want to play it over and over again, but as far as $15 two-player games go, it's pretty solid.
