Haggis, is a climbing game in the same family as Zheng Fen and Big Two. It borrows and recombines elements from its parent games (card combinations, bombs, scoring for cards in hand, scoring for cards collected in tricks) and mixes in equally distributed wild cards and betting that you’ll be the first to empty your hand of cards.
From the back of the box:
From the green hills of the Scottish highlands comes a card game stuffed full of fun. The goal is simply to play all of your cards first. But beware, hidden in the misty crags are subtle strategies that require mastery of tricky combinations, wild cards and…. “bombs”. Sharing a common lineage with the ancient card games of China, Haggis is a delicacy reserved for tables of two or three.
