Tails on Fire

Description

Tails on Fire

Once upon a time, Iguana stole fire from the village and fled to the sky. To restore fire to the world, Opossum found Iguana’s hiding place, lulled him to sleep, and stole the fire with her tail—or so the Huichol story goes.

WHAT IS TAILS ON FIRE?

Tails on Fire is an interactive card game in which the ever-changing selection of the best three playing cards for a round leads to a permanent dilemma, creating a unique gaming experience. This challenging game with easy-to-learn rules is the smart work of German author Thomas Sellner. Set in a tale of Mexico's indigenous Huichol people, Tails on fire is a fascinating composition of Mexican art, Huichol history, and super cute possums brought to life by Mexican artist Mayra Guadalupe Ornelas Ramos.Zwei Karten

HOW TO PLAY TAILS ON FIRE?

Tails on Fire is a permanent playing card hunt for the next and the hottest fire! Before a round, each player looks at which fire card in which value is to be won in the current display and which fire he might be able to steal from the other players. Accordingly, a player then chooses her 3 hand cards with which she wants to play the current round. In the following game round, the player has to stay permanently in the game by playing a card with a number increased by one. You can sit out and bluff, but whoever remains last in a round of Tails on Fire gets the fire with the last card played and thus the hot points. But watch out, already in the next round someone could take the fire away from you again, if he or she wins a fire with the same card value. Just as the opossum once tricked Iguana, players in Tails on Fire must outwit each other. And not just once, but anew in every round - so it's a matter of being clever and unpredictable!Zwei Karten

Trees for the Future

With "Trees for the future" we have found a competent partner in terms of sustainable commitment, which we support wholeheartedly with the sales of Tails on Fire: We are very happy to have a tree planted for each Tails on Fire game sold! Since trees are not everything, the further work of "Trees for the future" also refers to supporting regionally based families who live from agriculture with knowledge and tools. The organization's smart approach is called "There is no one-size-fits-all solution." It therefore works with local communities to see what help is needed to move toward more sustainable agriculture. Like the Heidelberger Spieleverlag, the organization was founded in 1989 and works primarily in the sub-Saharan regions of Africa. Detailed information is available at: https://trees.org.
