Tip Top Trick Taking Time in a Tin
August 12, 2005
As a big fan of trick-taking games, I am always looking for something that breaks from the norm. I really liked Pitch Six, but Tin Soldiers is now tied for #1 (Rage is the other #1).

So many things are different in this game that it's hard to describe why I like it so much. Playing your reserve cards with no idea what you have is kind of thrilling. The strategy is very intricate, because you don't know whether to sacrifice a flag or if you need to hang onto it hoping that you'll get more.

I won't go into all the details. I will simply say this, if you like trick-taking games you should try Tin Soldiers. I have yet to even try the game in teams (as is suggested in the rules), but I imagine this would add even more enjoyment to an already great game.

 
 
 
 
 
Quick to learn, fun for all
August 16, 2002

This game comes wonderfully packaged and allows gamers of all ages the ability to enjoy a simple entertaining game while imagining countless possibilities! The game play is challenging enough to keep adults interest while the characters are hilarious enough so as to keep the young ones thoroughly amused. Pass the Peas... SIR! Ready to Cream the Corn!

 
 
 
 
 
Food Fight!
June 03, 2002

This game gets 5 stars on packaging and gadgets alone! It comes in a nice 'bandaid box' with good graphics. A 'fickle finger of fate' is included which is a nice metal finger shaped spinner to choose the first player. The rules state it may be used to indicate who's number one also! (Much more fun than rolling a die to choose whose first.) The card stock feels just a little flismy but the cards fit nicely in deck protector sleeves. The game itself is a nice trick taking game with a few variants thrown in like the catsup cannon!
