Bad omens are all around you! Whether it’s black cats walking in front of you, walking under ladders or breaking mirrors, you will want to play your cards smartly to avoid all the back luck... or risk gathering as much bad luck as possible to pass the curse on to your adversaries and ruin their hands!
The one downside that leads to this being played less than other games we own, is that you need at least three people to play this game, other than that, this is one that gets pulled out now and again. The game takes broken mirrors, walking under ladders, black cats and the number 13 and gives you a fun little game. There is an element of strategy, in trying to not end up pushing the total over 13 and have to pick up the whole pile but this is let down slightly by the fact that if you end up with the most of a particular card you score zero for it (good for you but slightly annoying for those being very careful in their card playing). Still, this is a fun little game, in a sturdy box, great for chucking in the bag if you know you may have to wait a while somewhere.
