“We experience a real pleasure to play with the cards created by Jean-Louis Cazaux, even those not especially keen on rugby”

OVALIA

5 colored suits for a clash

80 cards forming 5 suits of 16 cards each. The emblems represent the most famous international rugby squads in "Ovalia" : The Wallabies / England Roses / Les Bleus / The All Blacks / The Springboks. Every suit has 15 numbered cards from 1 to 15 representing the players of a rugby team, and a supplementary one representing a "red card".
Inspired by rugby, players match cards which are worth a try (5 points) or a drop-goal (3 points). Tries can be converted to add 2 more points. There are scrums and lineouts. Finally, there is the risk to get a Red Card which freezes a card and cancels the corresponding combination.
