Why would you even make this?
But – Jimmy makes games. With some prodding, he gave us a prototype just for us to play. He created a light-hearted party game in the genre of Euchre or Spades with some great gameplay twists. With the “suits” of Van, Shovel, Ladder, and Boat, king-making, if-I-can’t-win-nobody-wins, and an old-maid mechanic – it’s just a blast!
We decided it was too much fun not to share and convinced Jimmy to let us take a prototype to some conventions. Jimmy was nervous. We know a game named Trumps & Ladders has immediate political connotations.
The feedback from playtesting decided for us. So many asked us to bring it to production. On a number of occasions even offering to buy our demo copies.
So here we are – inviting you to check out Trumps & Ladders for yourself. It’s just a game. It’s just a lot of fun!
