The Coleson-Conway era of The Spiel comes to a close with a celebration of our shared passion and love of trick-taking card games.

Anansi is a role-selection trick taker where players gain the abilities of animals from West African myths. Score points based on the tricks you take and avoid becoming the Fool.

Take the A Chord is a jazz themed trick taker where the Key (and the game) can change with a single card. Watch out for improvisations and try to take just the right number of tricks to win.

Listen in for a full review and discussion.
