The Curious Case of the Disappeared Decktet card

Designed by Roger Meertens
Players 3-6
Length 30 minutes
Extra Material pen and paper for all players

HELP! One of the cards from the original decktet has been stolen. You are on the case, like the good detective you are. The rich reward and eternal glory certainly are good motivations. Unfortunately you are not the only detective who's after the card. This makes the investigation difficult at least. The answers you get from your fellow detectives are ambiguous and enigmatic. So… it's up to you to find the missing card first.

The Young Queen's Palimpsest

Designed by Adam Blinkinsop
Players 2-5
Length 60 minutes
Extra Material 20 cubes (scholars and scribes) per player

Players are scholars and scribes poring over (studying, scribbling, erasing, more scribbling) an ancient manuscript. By playing cards to the free-form play area and then placing worker cubes on them for control, they hope to have their work be recognized by the Queen at story time.

Third Wheel

Designed by Kenny VenOsdel
Players 3
Length 40
Extra Material None

Third Wheel is a game for 2 people who want a 3rd to leave. Successful collusion against a third party member can convey the message that they are no longer wanted and often results in them leaving, and rather quickly at that. It has been used for exactly this purpose so effectively that in Jacynth simply suggesting a game of Third Wheel has become a rather impolite way to ask someone to go home. As a result the game is often suggested, but very rarely played.

Third Wheel is a trick taking game for exactly 3 players where 2 players (referred to as Setters) are always set against a rotating dealer (referred to as Dealer). The 2 Setters will get to call trump and hi/low, and then the dealer must bid a number of tricks they will take, with the goal being to make their bid exactly. The other players will get the most points for setting the dealer, but the player who took fewer tricks will usually do the best.
