Beautiful and clever

A gorgeous and clever little 2-player game. Very easy mechanics if you've ever played Whist or the like, with some gamier aspects added to prevent it from getting stale and to add some tactical nuance. The catch-up mechanism (if you overwhelmingly beat your opponent in a hand they receive points and you receive none) keeps things competitive and makes for interesting decision-making.

One day maybe I'll even beat my wife at this game!

Trick-taking at its best

The description of the game made me concerned it would be too simple but it is anything but. A genius take on trick-taking that requires a lot of thought and strategy. Has elements that remind of the classic card game Hearts.

Great little game

Easy to learn and convenient and compact to play. The inventive to win, but not by too much, is a great twist.

Fox in the forest

Nice simple card game, easy to get into and well balanced with enough special cards to make it interesting. Not a huge amount of depth so games are quite short but still enjoyable.

GAME OVERVIEW

The Fox in the Forest is a trick-taking game for two players. Aside from the normal ranked- and suited-cards used to win tricks, fairy characters such as the Fox and the Witch have special abilities that let you change the trump suit, lead even after you lose a trick, and more.

You score points by winning more tricks than your opponent, but don't get greedy! Win too many tricks, and you will fall like the villain in so many fairy tales...
