Deceptively clever

You'll play one round and love it. "All the goodness of bluffing with none of the worrying about strategy" you'll think. Then 15 minutes later you'll hit the last third of the game and realised that *what* you're lying about matters as much as being able to tell who's lying. Then you'll love it even more.

I've enjoyed this with a clever three year old, a game resistant 76 year old, and a great many in between. 10/10

Quick and fun

We played this in the Bath cafe to fill our final 20 minutes and it was good fun, particularly towards the end of the game when we were all one card away from being out!

It only took 10-15 mins and very easy to pick up.

OVERVIEW

Cockroach Poker is a reverse set collection game that has nothing to do with poker – except that the game is all about bluffing, but with cards that show cockroaches, rats and stink bugs instead of queens, 10s and aces. The goal of the game is to force another player to collect 4 of any one type of critter.

The deck includes 64 cards, with eight copies of eight types of critters. To set up the game, shuffle the deck and deal the cards out to players.

On a turn, a player takes one card from his hand, lays it face down on the table, slides it to a player of his choice, and declares a type of critter, e.g., "Stink bug". The player receiving the card either

• Accepts the card, says either "true" or "false", then reveals the card. If this player is wrong in her claim, she keeps the card on the table in front of her face up; if she is right, the player who gave her the card places it face up before him.

• Peeks at the card, then passes it face down to another player, either saying the original type of critter or saying a new type. This new player again has the choice of accepting the card or passing it, unless the card has already been seen by all other players in which case the player must take the first option.

The game ends when a player has no cards to pass on his turn or when a player has four cards of the same critter on the table in front of him. In either case, this player loses and everyone else wins. 

2-6 PLAYERS | 20 MINS | AGES 8+
