A Card Game of Secret Area Control for 1-2 players




Spotlight is a Head to Head card game of claiming areas with your secret suit. Each turn is a simple, yet tough choice of playing a single card from your hand. Will you be able to time your card plays, bluff your opponent, claim more areas, and win more points?

If you like classic trick taking games, Spotlight expands that formula by laying the tricks out as Areas that you'll want to secretly gain control of. The catch is, you don't know what suit your opponent will win with, so you'll have to watch their placements closely so you don't end up helping them win points! Each round features unique Areas with special abilities and allows players to secretly change the suit of two of their played cards!

Designed and developed by Jay Bell and Adam Stichter, we're excited to bring this tantalizing take on classic trick taking card games to life! The game is a rush up until the end of the round when you reveal your true color and divvy up points from each Area.

Spotlight plays in 30 minutes with two players and also includes a solo mode where you play against the AI "Light".
