Scratch's Sc0re [EXTERNAL LINK - NOT THE PRODUCT]
[Hey, this product is not for sale here, but we are selling it on DriveThruCards, in P&P and physical deck versions!]
You had a lot of fun when you were alive. You stole whatever you wanted, loved many a partner, murdered anyone who ever tried to get in your way. When it came to the untamed West, you bowed your head to no religion, law, or social nicety.
And that’s when a gentleman waiting under that lamp post offered you a deal. Calling himself “Old Scratch” he invited you to play in a card game of his design. Win, and you could be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
You shook his hand to seal the deal, and that’s when everything went black.
Now you are chained to a card table with a few others who were in the running for “worst person alive” in a room lit by walls of fire. Old Scratch is none other than the Devil himself, and you’re playing in Hell for your very soul. Whoever ends the game with the most chips will be leaving with more money than they could spend, and another year of life for every chip they end with. But only one of you is leaving.
Build Talons out of the cards in your hands as fast as you can to gain a reward from Old Scratch. Or risk aiming for Scratch’s Score, which he’ll only give to the player who can deliver him the card he most desires that round. Whatever you do, try to not have any loose cards at the end of the round - you’ll pay for each one.
And when amongst cheaters and swindlers, always cut the deck!
Scratch's Sc0re is a Rummy game in the style of Three Thirteen and Five Crowns. Make groups of cards called Talons out of your hand, while keeping more chips than your opponents. Clear first in a round to get a bonus based on the hand size of the round, or wait for someone else to end the round to try and nab the Score by bringing the Old Scratch his Wanted Card or Scratch's Set. Just remember: It's not about winning. It's about making everyone else lose.
