In the Half-Pint Pub, tempers are running hot. You can almost feel the tension in the air. Any moment things could break down into a full-out brawl.
Game summery Half-Pint Heroes is a fun trick-taking style game, but with no trumps. Instead, you play out poker-like card combinations and try to predict how many tricks both you and your opponents will win each round. Players earn points both for winning tricks, and for making correct predictions. Additionally, two special features provide for a lot of extra excitement and table talk: brawls and gun fights! A brawl breaks out when a player wins three tricks in a row, winning the round immediately. A gun fight is when a player manages to make correct predictions five rounds in a row. When this happens, all the other players are forced to work together to make sure they don't succeed one more time - otherwise the player wins the whole game immediately.
Features Half-Pint Heroes is an ideal gift for any type of player - casual to expert. The rules are simple and easy to understand, and the poker combinations familiar to most everyone (though reference cards are provided just in case). The game has a flexible player count and is just as much fun with two as with seven. The cards are uniquely and elaborately illustrated by Maura Kalusky, and even have a few easter eggs for observant players.
