circus flohcati Australian publisher Grail Games is headed to Kickstarter to bring you the 5th game in their ongoing Mike Line collection - a series of small games that pack a big punch - and this time it is an oldie, but a goodie: Reiner Knizia's Circus Flohcati. This popular filler card game - which plays 3-5 players in about 15 minutes - will be reprinted featuring all new artwork by artist Heiko Gunther as well as a bit of extra polish on the rules to bring the game closer to Knizia's original vision. circus flohcati cards In this game, players must outdo one another by putting on the greatest Flea Circus show in the world. Circus Flohcati uses a combination push your luck set collection and card drafting mechanics in which players attempt to build up the best possible hand of cards - that will allow them to combine sets of three of a single suit and possibly even a game ending gala show (1 set of 1 card from each different suit) - by drafting cards from the center of the table. You can always draw more cards to give yourself more to choose from, but be careful: If you draw a card that matches a suit already on the table, you'll get nothing at all! Unfortunately, Grail Games only possesses the rights to distribute the game within specific countries, so the project is exclusively limited to backers from the USA, the UK, Canada, Australia & New Zealand.
