Button Shy continues the rapid expansion of their Wallet Series of games with their latest micro game, Pod-X. Pod-X is a deduction type game where you are trying to figure out what the secret rule is that will score at the end of the round. The dealer will always know what the secret rule is and so will works towards that end, so it is up to the other players to try and figure out what that rule is.
On a turn you can play out a card to the table (thus increasing the public knowledge of cards), pass where you don’t play a card but could still play on your next turn, or fold to drop out of the round entirely. At the end of the round, the secret objective is revealed and whoever has the cards that matches that, including the players that folded, will earn the points on that card. The first player to 10 points is the winner.
As usual with these games, there is a PnP option for this game (a very inexpensive print version of the game) as well as the option to add other Wallet games and even a deluxe version of the game with a playmat and cardboard chits for points and tracking info.
You can head over to the Kickstarter page to check it out, but go fast, the campaign ends on the 15th of July.
