FOOL! is a card-shedding and trick-taking card game where the object is to empty your hand, but also to still score points!
You don’t need to win every trick, but you need to stay in the round. If you play the lowest card in a trick, you are the FOOL!, and must pass during the next trick, and therefore you will not be able to get rid of another card.
At the end of a round, negative points are scored for cards still left in your hand. Positive points are scored if you get rid of all of your cards, except if you were the FOOL! at the end of the hand, then you score nothing!
Be careful or you will become the… FOOL!
FOOL! is a reprint of the 1995 Friedemann Friese game Foppen, but with new 2nd edition rules, more cards, and allowing up to 8 players!
