"If you love Hearts and Spades, you’ll love Clubs. Clubs is an enjoyable, easy-to-learn, “trick-taking” game for kids and the casual card player. It also offers strategic twists and turns, combined with a unique 60-card deck. The goal is to get rid of your cards as fast as possible while winning tricks with clubs in them (clubs are the only cards worth points). But, the last player to hold cards scores nothing, even if lots of clubs were accumulated. Game uses only numbered cards – no confusing face-cards – so it makes it easy to learn and quick to play. Clubs comes in a small box, making this card game great to play when on-the-go. Designed by Dominic Crapuchettes, founder of North Star Games. Dominic captained an Alaskan salmon fishing boat for 12 seasons, but in his heart, he always dreamed about starting a board game company. One stormy night, his boat took on enough water to submerge the batteries in the engine room. All the electronics went dead, and he was forced to guide his boat home by the North Star. He vowed that if he survived, he would stop fishing and follow his dreams. In 2003, Dom started North Star Games and sold its flagship games Wits & Wagers and Say Anything, which he designed."
