Have you ever heard the myth about cats having nine lives?
In this trick-taking game you’ll put that to the test. Each round you’ll bet how many tricks you can win, but be careful, every victory will add another card back into your hand to be played again! Can you outwit the other players and earn nine lives before they do?

Or, if you want either a lower stress evening or are just learning, there’s the option to play the variant without bidding. On the flip side, you make it even more challenging by adding the fourth "Beyond" variant.
