Product Description

The object of the game is to collect many valuable Circus cards to achieve the highest points score. In the course of the game, cards with circus attractions are displayed in one row in the middle of the table. On his turn, a player chooses and takes a card from the row, either into his hand, or to form a Trio for bonus points. Before selecting his card the player may, if he wishes, draw cards and add them to the row in order to improve his choices. However, if he draws an attraction which is already in the row, he forfeits his right to take a card. The game ends when one player succeeds in staging a Gala Show, with one Circus card from each attraction!

Great fun even for 2.
August 14, 2000

This quick game which is very easy to learn can even be played with just two players. The mechanics of the game are simple and because it is short I tend to play several games in a row.

Even better than I first thought

We have played Zirkus Flohcati for three months now--not constantly, but many, many times! ...and it has more than lived up to the great first impression it made. As expected, it does play as well for four or five as for three players. The Gala Show doesn't win every hand--sometimes we even get to the bottom of the deck without anyone declaring it--but on the hands where the Gala Show is declared, it seems to win about three times out of four.

For a quick strategy game filled with moans, groans, laughter and grins, you can't beat it!

Worth the illustrations on the cards

This is a very good game for teens and preteens. That is not to say adults will not enjoy it. You are trying to get high numbered cards in as many of ten suits as possible. You get a bonus if you have a card in each suit and there are ways to get points with your extra cards obtained during the game. During your turn you may turn over as many cards as you want as long as you do not turn over a suit already showing (bad) or an action card (good). If you choose when to stop you then take any one card showing to your hand. All in all pretty simple and fun.
