The Bark Side is a new trick-taking game from Korea Boardgames that’s up on Kickstarter now. Players are looking to win tricks, causing their opponents to lose cards, all up until that last trick, which you don’t want to get! It’s a quick and simple game suitable for the whole family.
From the campaign:
The Bark Side is a light, innovative trick-taking game for 3-5 players in 30 minutes.
Your goal is to avoid winning the last trick of the round. But winning earlier tricks allow you to strip other players of their lowest cards, increasing your chances for that final turn.
That tension – managing high and low cards, balancing each trick against your longer strategy – sets The Bark Side apart from the pack.
The campaign’s a bit more than halfway to its goal, but there’s only 10 days left on the clock.
