Product Description

More fun than Hearts and Rummy, award-winning Wizard is "the Ultimate Game of Trump" the whole family can enjoy. The rules are easy to learn -- the strategy adds an exciting challenge. In Wizard, players try to win the exact number of tricks they bid. The Wizard deck is similar to a regular deck of playing cards with the addition of four Wizards and four Jesters. Jesters always lose and Wizards always win. In the first round, players start out with one card. In the second round, players are deal two cards, and so on, with each round becoming more challenging. When you make your exact bid, you earn points. If you take too many or too few tricks, you lose points. The special, custom Wizard Score Sheet helps players keep track of bids and points. Wizard Card Game can be played with 2-6 players. Instructions are in English, French, and Spanish.

If you like card games with trump and strategy that are extremely easy to learn, you'll love this game. It is similar to "Up the River, Down the River" and a little like Euchre and Pinnocle, except much easier with much more strategy. Also, you can actually win a given round by taking zero tricks, you can win by loosing all the hands. Highly Recommended for all ages.

This game is ideal because it's simple to learn, quick to play, and very entertaining. Even my father, who really doesn't enjoy cards or board games at all, can easily be persuaded to join us for a round of Wizard. We've found that 4-5 people playing this game makes for the best setup because there are more chances for missed bids (and thus an added drama factor!) and the game doesn't last too long. You'll be surprised at how attached you can become to a card game--whether you miss your bid or trump everyone else, you're likely to become emotionally involved, and that makes this game an intense but fun way to spend an afternoon or evening. Five stars for sure on this product!

Every year for Christmas I try to find a good family game. This is 2008's great game. We love that any number from 3 to 6 can play. There is a lot of strategy and changing course in the middle of the game as you try to take the exact number of tricks bid before the play starts. Two quick tips: The score sheet is a little small as we found it easiest to put the hand score/total score into the little square. Also, write down the side of the score sheet either who is dealing (we use deals) or who leads for each hand. It is important to know who is leading the round. The first game we played (3 people) took about 1-1/4 hours. Each subsequent game was quicker, even though we had up to 6 people. I would say the game would be better with 12/13 years old and up, but a precocious 10 year old would be ok.
Follow up 3 January 2009 -- I forgot one tip. We gave pennies to each person based on what they bid. That way, each person could remember what they bid and everyone could see everyone else's bid.

This is a fun game that is great to play with 2 to 6 people. It's not difficult but it is challenging enough to keep you interested. We had a gas when we played with friends.

This is a great card game. Everyone we have introduced to this game loves it. The Jester and Wizard cards add some fun twists to the outcome, and if you fall behind initially, you can still catch-up as the number of cards per hand increase at the end.

My only complaint, and the reason I only give it 4 stars, is that the cards tend to get sticky with extended use, and given you can shuffle the deck 15 to 20 times per game, the cards get a lot of handling. A plastic card surface would have been better. The best solution I have found is to purchase more than one set. I am sure the manufacturer, with whom I am not affiliated, loves me for saying that.

By the way, my family sometimes shortens the game time by choosing a subset of the total hands used to play a game. So for 4 players, instead of dealing hands with 1 to 15 cards, we will play hands of, say, 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 13, and 15 cards.

This IS a great card game, although be aware that it is almost the same game as one that we called "oh h*ll", which we played with a standard deck. (It's a game with trump, and first hand is 1 card each, second is 2 cards each, etc., and players have to bid exact numbers of hands they think they will get.) Main difference is that this has 8 additional cards: 4 jesters who are at the bottom of the rankings, and 4 wizards who are at the top; slight difference in rules. My kids, 9 and 11, who have never played a trump game before, were able to understand it relatively easily. One reason this is a great game is that it doesn't depend entirely on getting great cards and then playing them well, but you can still earn points with a "bad" hand if you can bid and play it correctly. Have fun!

Each year, my family searches out games to play at Christmas. This is my pick for this year. Friends introduced me to this game of trump, with surprising twists and turns, a few weeks ago--- and I was hooked! I only wish I would have purchased a few more to have on hand for stocking stuffers!

Really fun game, I ordered this for my friend in Florida; it arrived on time and as advertised. A bit complicated but really fun once you have the rules figured out. Includes score sheets, but you don't need them other than as a guide.
