Here it is, the beginning of September and Fairway’s trying to beat the major retailers in getting that holiday stuff out there. He’s got a list of eleven games that would make excellent gifts for families, kids and gamers alike.
Fairway definitely has something for games with rainbows. Red7 is no different, except that this rainbow really knows how to mess with your hand. See if Fairway manages to find the pot of gold at this end of this rainbow-themed game.
In keeping with my recent love of card games, last week I picked up today’s review Red7, a game designed by Carl Chudyk and Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games. Red7 is a 2-4 player card game that I would say is a little like a mash up of Fluxx and Uno. Everyone starts with a set number of cards in their hand, and they are trying to be the last one standing at the end of the round. The way you knock out other players is by playing cards from your hand that either satisfies the current rule AND makes you be winning the game, or you change the rule to make it so you are winning the game.
