fun for all ages, a classic
September 18, 2003

From the first deal, the simplicity of this game allows anyone to play and enjoy it. The constant shifting of trump forces players to use unusual strategies and keeping one's eyes on the playing board is a must.

We have owned 2 copies of this game and still find new fans for it around our table. A game that should be reissued immediately!!!

Always a Hit
December 07, 2001

I have few games that are always successful with each of my various groups of friends. Trumpet is one of those consistently well-received games.

It is easy to learn, which my non-gaming friends enjoy. It offers a nice mixture of luck and strategy, which makes it appealing to people of all skill levels. And it allows for conversation during the game, which makes it appropriate for social situations, such as holiday gatherings with relatives.

I bought the game after it was rated GAMES' top choice several years ago, and I've played it so often that the cards are beginning to wear out--a strong testimonial to its replay value. I've bought several used games to give to friends who wanted their own copies.

I'd strongly recommend this combination card/board game to anyone who wants a fun, interesting, well-rounded game.

Board-card game combines luck, strategy and fun
November 30, 1999

Trumpet is one of the first card-board games I ever owned and it remains a favorite over the past 8 years. I first saw it as Game of the Year in 1991 (Games Magazine).

I think it successfully blends luck, strategy and fun so that experienced and novice players have a equal chance of winning. Almost every person that I have introduced this game to has found it easy to learn its nuances and strategies.

Its only weak point lies in the situation in which someone gets really far behind the rest of the pack--this player can experience frustration because they are so far behind and will never catch up--too bad there couldn't be a rule to allow a player to catch up to the end of the line instead of 'choosing trump'.

All in all, a great game that should be a part of any serious gamer's inventory.
