Eco Friendly Trick-Taking Card Game Sea Change Arrives This Summer

Inside up Game has a new card game on the horizon

Sea Change (Inside Up Games)Canadian publisher Inside Up Games has a new trick taking card game on the horizon. In Sea Change, players will attempt to win tricks featuring positive points all while playing with cards featuring lively aquatic art. The game is for one to eight players, ages 8+, plays in 20-40 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $14.00 when it arrives this summer.

From Inside Up:

The deck contains 80 Sea cards in five suits. The five suits are represented by different colours and icons. Each suit has one card of each value; a higher card beats a lower card of the same suit — high (15) to low (0).

Depending on the number of players, a set number of cards from a set number of suits will be shuffled together. Players can decide in advance to play as teams, or each player for themselves. Each player will be dealt 10 cards to create their hand. In a clockwise manner, each player will contribute one card, chosen from their hand, to create a trick.

In each trick, one suit will be stronger than others (trump). Any card in this trump suit beats all cards not in the trump suit. A Sea Change will change the trump suit in the middle of a trick when a player matches the value of the last card played.

Players attempt to win tricks containing cards with positive points, and avoid cards with negative points. *Important* During tricks, 0s are not worth any points. At the end of the round, check which suit is trump. The 0 from that suit, and only that suit, is now worth 5 points. All other 0s are not worth any points.

The player with the highest score at the end of the round will earn 1 Victory Point (VP). The game ends when one player has earned 3 VPs.

On top of getting a great game, you will be contributing to the clean up of our seas! 1% of the proceeds of each game sold will be donated directly to charities working to clean up our water!

We have also strived to remove as much plastic from the packaging and manufacturing of the game as possible!
