Cockroach Poker

£9.99

Can you keep a poker face and bluff your way to victory? Stink bugs, toads and rats are just some of the creatures in this bug-rilliant game.

As soon as a player has four of a kind, or when a player no cards left to pass, they lose – and everyone else wins!

What’s in the box?

  • 64 cards

How to play:

On your turn, you pick a card from your hand. Lay it face down on the table, slide it over to another player of your choice and state what it is, e.g. Cockroach.

The player you slid the card over to now has two options:

  • Accept it: before picking it up, say loudly ‘true’ or ‘false’. If the player is correct, the card is passed back to you, if the player is wrong, they have to take the card themselves.
  • Pass it: the player decides to not accept the card but pass it on. In this case, the player can peek at the card before sliding it onto another player. In addition to this, the player must confirm your statement of Cockroach, or make a new claim, e.g. Stink Bug. A card can be passed on multiple times, with each player being able to either accept it or pass it, until it has reached the last player, who must accept it.

The game can end in two ways:

  • When a player gets ‘four-of-a-kind’, four cards with the same creature, e.g. four cockroaches, palmed off on him. This player has lost. The other players share in the victory.
  • As soon as a player with no more cards in his hand has to start a round. This player cannot offer a card and has lost. All other players share the victory here as well.

Bonus!

Perfect travel sized game for on the going gaming. Plus there is a two player variant!
