Anansi

Description

Anansi – Keeper of Stories

Once Anansi decided to gather all stories and become the wisest of all. After many years he finally had all the stories in the world, but poor Anansi did not feel any wiser. Eventually he realized that true wisdom is not achieved by keeping knowledge to yourself and so he decided to share his stories and inspire people with them. Some say Anansi is a trickster, but he is a spider for sure and sometimes even a man. Let me tell you why he is also known as the “Keeper of Stories”. And believe it or not, this is how this game was made!

WHAT IS ANANSI?

In this trick-taking card game by Cyril Blondel and Jim Dratwa, you have to be smart about which tricks you are trying to get!Zwei Karten

HOW TO PLAY ANANSI?

Each trick represents a story, but stories untold are worth only a little. If you can aquire followers as well – by playing a card not to the trick but for their indicated number of followers – you can match up your followers with stories to inspire them. It should always be your goal to inspire all your followers, because this grants you the tricksters favour and sweet bonus points. Note, the cards played to gain followers can affect the trump suit and therefore the trump can change several times in a game. It is up to you to adapt to the new situation!Zwei Karten

Oh, the stories I could tell …
