NSV releases the roll and write number game Triggs

November 19, 2022 - 3:20pm

Triggs by designer Karin Hetling is a card based roll-and-write title from publisher Nürnberger-Spielkarten-Verlag (NSV). Cards contain the numbers 1-12, and players have sheets with these numbers appearing 2-5 times each. Each turn, players either draw new cards, discard a set of cards of the same value, or use their cards to cross off numbers. Players cross off as many squares of the same number from their sheet as they can, either by playing cards of that number, or pairs of cards that sum to that number. Finishing a row of numbers gives another bonus tick, which can easily lead to interesting combos. The first to cross off all the numbers on their sheet wins.

Triggs is currently available in Germany, although the publisher does have English rules on their website, perhaps predicting a US release in the future.
