Product Description

Mmmm. Bugs. You can't eat just one.

Here's what the Gravediggers of Parts Unknown play for money, when they're not scavenging body parts for science. It's a gambling game about parts, tools, gravestones, and bugs.

Yummy, delicious bugs.

Game Synopsis: The deck is composed of 17 cards in 3 suits, each of which has a dollar value and a number of bugs. Players bid for the right to order the three suits, and to lead the first trick. Taking cards costs you money, taking bugs can cost you the game. Whoever has the fewest bugs, but at least one, wins the hand and the pot.

It's a horror-themed trick-taking game unlike no other. With fantastic illustrations on every card, and a large section of poker-style variations from the basic game.

Erratum: The rulebook says the 12's are "Doubler" cards, but the 12's don't actually say "double" on them. That's a terrible typo. The 12's really should say "Double," so pretend we didn't screw them up and play them that way anyway. Hey, at least we were smart enough to remember the "D" on the 2's.
