HeidelBÄR Games has released a new family friendly card game, Sweet & Spicy. In the game, players bluff each other while playing cute cat themed cards. Sweet & Spicy is for two to six players, ages 8+, plays in around 15 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $17.99.
About the game:
Once hungry Kitty craved to eat, but sadly found no yummy meat, instead just found some weird spice, scoffed it down and paid the price. From prickling hot sensation came the grand idea for this sweet game.
Sweet & Spicy is a bluffing card game for 2-6 players and the kid-friendly variant of Spicy. Instead of Wasabi you can now play with Lemon and there is a new card in the game: The SUPER-JOKER. But the game principle remains the same.
Just like in Spicy, the cards are played face down, so you can cheat when you announce your card. But it’s not just about bluffing convincingly. You can almost always play a card that is at least half right if you play it skillfully from your hand. It’s a matter of tactically considering which card you can get away with: Do I play a “pepper 9” better than a “chili 10” or a suit joker than a “pepper 10”? Or do I pass better, because I’m sure it will be noticeable that I’ve been thinking about it for so long?
In Sweet & Spicy, the super joker is added, which can be any spice and any number. It is therefore always correct and cannot be doubted.
