RAGE is a trick taking game that starts with ten cards in your hand. Then, round by round, the number of cards (and options) reduce until, at last, you have only ONE card! Players predict the number of tricks they plan to take each round and score points for their accurate bidding. Sound easy? All of those outRAGEous action cards will keep you guessing!
My family has played this game until the deck is almost worn out, and at the price that's well worth it. Rage is a trick-taking, bidding game reminiscent of Spades or perhaps even the board game Canyon. The game is played in ten rounds with a decreasing number of cards dealt each round. The fewer the cards, the harder it is to determine if you will get the tricks you propose to take, and in this game you have to take the exact number you bid or the point deduction is deadly. Scoring can be a bit tricky at first but as long as one person is used to it, they can become the designated score keeper. This is a game we bring out for people who don't normally play board games, and it has never failed to work. Since it accommodates a large number of players, it is also a good one when you have more than four or five who want to play. I LOVE this game and am ready for a fresh deck to replace the old ones!
Bought this as a christmas gift along with a couple(4) more of other family and card games from this site and this one is the overall favorite. It took two rounds before all players understood the meaning of the rage cards and how to play it correctly but when they did, it made the game that much more exciting and strategic. My wife, son, parents, brother and sister all played this game and we all enjoyed it because it's a game where when you've met your quota of wins your trying to NOT win anymore where other players might want to win. You have to play it to understand.
The game is 1/2 strategy, 1/2 luck (the Rage cards and guessing the # of wins) but 100% FUN for all.
Alright, I'm another one who bought this game, read the rules and said this is just Oh Hell! (That's what the rule books call it) with a few cards thrown in. It gathered dust until I kept seeing it on the Top Sellers list of this web site over and over. So I played it and it was a blast. It's the perfect family game and a good game to play when you want to leave your brains at first base and go running for home. Yes, there is some strategy to this game, but luck sticks it's head in and makes you scream. I have some relatives who are serious Contract Bridge players and although I love the game, when you play with them you feel like you are taking a final exam. I asked them to play a round of Rage! and it's the first time I've seen them let loose in my life. (My uncle even loosened his necktie!). For the money you can't lose.
