Description:

Skulls and Roses is an intense bluffing card game which requires nerves of steel, audacity and a nose for subtle strategy.

Each player begins the game with exactly 4 cards: 3 Roses cards and 1 Skull card. One players plays a face-down card and the others players adds more cards until someone feels safe enough to state that he can turn a number of cards face up and get only roses. When there are only roses, the player wins else he is out of the game. Two successful challenges wins the game.

Traditionally, biker gangs chose their leaders through a merciless contest called "Back on the Pavement", which consisted of seeing who could last the longest while being dragged behind a heavy cylinder... without spilling his beer.

It's during their regular meetings at their favorite bar, the "Skull & Roses", that the bikers created a fearsome game of bluff which is still used to this day to choose their supreme leader. You're sure you can dominate your opponents? Then prove it.
