Improvisation and Harmony are What Counts
Take The “A” Chord is a jazz-themed trick-taking game.
Players, as jazz musicians, demonstrate their musical skills on stage. In this competition through jazz music performance with feelings, such as Bluesy, Lyrical, Soulful, Earthy, and Swingy, you need to do more than to simply pursue victory. If your performance deviates from the harmony with your band, you will fail to entertain the audience.
Key change / the Improvisation
Players must follow suit (play the same color as the card that was lead) if possible, along with the irregular rule that allows the players to play cards of the same rank with different colors. Furthermore, the card with the highest rank value changes during this unique trick-taking game.
“Key change” effect changes the key and rank values, resulting in weak cards becoming powerful and vice versa. Combined with the “Improvisation” effect, which extends the trick for another round, the game outcome becomes quite unpredictable.
In 2015 Saashi & Saashi released their first card game Take the A Chord. It’s time to look forward to a new deluxe version of Take the A Chord that’s been upgraded 2021 and is bigger and better than ever!
