Description

A trick-taking card game for four people that breaks all the rules.

Blindside is a trick-taking card game for four people that breaks all the rules. The deck contains five ranks of cards in four suits. Each suit has multiples of each card. Players begin by using one of their cards to bid for trump - these cards are removed from play. The remaining cards are used to determine the number of tricks each player thinks they can take. The players bid on their hands, hoping to take exactly the number of tricks bid. The dealer leads to the first trick, and the fun begins. The winner of a trick is the highest card, but, with cards of equal value, the highest is the last one played. And, to make matters worse, there are four wild cards which are the highest trump and can be played at any time. Since there are either two or three of each cards as well as wild cards, you never know which trick is yours until the last card is played.
