Eduardo Baraf of Pencil First Games and Jon Gilmour have collaborated on a trick taking card game that uses an interesting box design as a major component in the game. In most trick taking games players know all of the information played out on the table, but in this one the box obscures the previously played cards adding in a deduction element that gives this one a unique twist.

Our discussion focused on the box and the intricacies to designing and prototyping this component. I learned that Jon Gilmour came into this project because he always wanted to design a trick taking game. And finally, Edo and I found ourselves on a tangent about understanding how to decide the number of copies one should print.

Heroes and Tricks is currently on Kickstarter, so if this game sounds right for you or you like unique trick taking games, check this one out. It's only 20 bucks.
