Hoffer is a precision bid trick taking card game for 2 - 4 players. While playing through a series of rounds, players will bid on how many tricks they think they can capture. The more accurate a player is, the more points they will score.


Think carefully when bidding. Two of the Jacks will change rank depending on what suit is called trump. Have high ranking cards? The High Joker might just ruin your day.

Haus
Euchre distinguishes itself from the standard American rule set by including 32 cards in the deck as well as a joker. During the second bidding phase, players also have the option to call for no-trump which will make it an ace-high round. These three changes open the game up and allow for more maneuverability during play.

Haus Pitch is a cut-throat five point variation of the game intentionally created to be as vicious as possible. The addition of the jick, stealing the bid, the gift, and the draw phase gives players plenty of opportunity to stick it to their opponents.

Nein Nine
is a fast paced and feisty trick taker for three players. Each player is trying to capture as many tricks as possible while avoiding the 9’s. 8’s make trump, 7’s change rank, and the Joker can win or lose the trick. Keeping track of cards is key, but that is easier said than done.
