The hunt for big potato sacks is a little out of the ordinary because in this trick-taking card game, players don’t follow suit as usual. No, you have to play a suit that’s not already in the trick! This can get a bit chaotic, as the values of the cards in each suit are also different. What’s more, the highest card doesn’t always take the trick: “Potato Man”, the weakest card, can still beat “Evil Potato.” You get the potato sack in the same colour as the trick you win. And even that gets you a different amount of points. Confused? That’s just the beginning! Soon we’ll get past the tricks – just to confirm that each extra player makes the game a little different.
