Chronos

Trick Taking Through the Ages

Chronos is a trick-taking game with 52 cards that are split up into 3 suits, or ages as they are referred to in the game. Each age has it's own personality and special abilities.

Glory - Ah the age of Glory, where the players prosperity is awakened. this is the age of boosting VP. the base VP for this age is increased. and also the abilities help boost VP. The player who lives in this age is a good place to be.

Corruption - The age of Corruption is the age of underhanded dealings, and making deals with the other corrupt individuals. In this age the focus is on having cards with negative VP. However, those negative VP cards don't stay with you. At the end of the round you can go give them to someone more deserving of the negative VP.

Misdirection - In the age of Misdirection the players turn the stakes in order to win in trickier ways. Maybe you saved your lowest ranked card just to reverse the direction the cards go. or maybe you reset a trick by placing the bottom most card back on top. this age is the age of the trickster.

However your play style is, over the many rounds of Chronos you must adapt to survive. That is the path to victory.
