Game: Heart Burn
A card game with iPhone app accessory. Yes, you'll need the accessory to play. The game is playable with a standard deck of cards. In the future, we'll make a custom cards that can be ordered via in-app purchase. Rules: - Separate A,K,Q,J,10,9 cards from a standard deck of cards. - Shuffle and deal to all players. - Open the app and choose the right player configuration. - Press play - When it is your turn, (and before the next heartbeat) you can play a single card face-up that matches EITHER the card or suite. - You may optionally BURN any number of cards face-down at the same time. - If a player CHALLENGES your burn, tap the screen to pause the game. - If the play was valid (all the burned cards match), the challenging player picks up 3 cards from the table (if there are any). - If the play was invalid (any of the burned cards didn't match), the player who played picks all the cards they played back up (+ 3 from the table if there are any). The player who gets rid of their cards first wins.
No cheating (please): The game system relies on willing player participation to enforce the rules of the game world (e.g., hold your breath, close your eyes, etc.).
non-digital game (board game, card game, physical game, etc.)
