An excellent card trading game. The cards are a pleasure to play with
and the rules, though simple, are well designed with enough room to allow you to plan the
trades you need in advance without committing yourself to a non-winner. Once the players
are familiar with it, the game is fast paced and fun. A candidate for the 1997 Spiel des
Jahres, which must be rather rare for a card game (I haven't checked). By the way,
"Ich glaub' es hackt" was kindly translated for mefor me by Stefanie at Luding.
Apparently it is a colloquial term indicating an unpleasant surprise, I guess with a bit
of a pun on digging. I suppose all you could come up with in English would be something
like "Damn it!".
