Gameday First Play – Gods Gambit

Posted on by Jesta

Uno from the designer of Love Letter.

So Uno with card abilities.

In Gods’ Gambit, players represent fallen gods who must solve problems in the world and perform good acts to be allowed to return to the High Heavens.

Every player gets a hand of 7 cards, the rest are placed in the middle of the table and the top card is turned over.

Gods Gambit Discard

On your turn you can play a card into this discard pile. It must match either the number, or the colour of the card.

Or you can play a card in front of you in your Karma pile and use it’s ability…

Gods Gambit Karma Pile

You can also draw a card and play a card if you like.

When a player plays their last card the round ends. You add up the value of each card left in your hand, plus the value of the cards in your Karma pile as penalty points.

After 3 rounds, the player with the fewest points wins.

Short description but apart from going over each cards ability there’s not much else to say… it’s Uno, what do you want! 🙂

But, it’s quite fun actually. The extra choices you have to make on top of a normal Uno game adds quite a bit, more than you’d think.

It’s goes alongside Chronicle in my collection as successful Seiji Kanai spins on basic games.
