New from Reiner Knizia, Icarus is a game for three to seven players who must don their wax-fastened wings to see who can soar the highest without being caught flying too close to the sun.
Icarus players draw one card each from seven different-colored decks and must bid an amount of one of those colors which they believe is less than the sum of every player's card in that color. At some point bids, which must increase with each player, will reach so high that they are challenged! With a handy game mat and additional play variations included from the developers at Victory Point Games, we're sure that Icarus will find a happy landing among your gaming group!
How high can you fly?
