About

Almost exactly one year after the release of 49 shades of grey the sequel is in the starting blocks: 49 shades darker. Again a game with 49 Cards (bridge format), but this time much more colorful. From the 4 basic colors of the CMYK color model the colors are mixed to a circle. Now it is a matter of recognising as well as possible how the colour components are composed and stacking them from light to dark.

If you know a bit about color theory, it is certainly an advantage. But a bit of luck and tactical skill is also important.

The game is played with 2-7 people. The rules of the game are included in English, German and French. 

Rules of the game 

The card game 49 shades darker is all about recognising colour nuances. On each of the 49 card backs there is a circle consisting of 100 parts of the CMYK color model (C = Cyan / M = Magenta / Y = Yellow / K = Key/Black). The 4 numbered color circles on the front have a color portion between 1 and 49, whereby each numerical value per basic color occurs only 1 x in the game.

At the beginning of the game, the 49 cards are evenly distributed among the players and any remaining cards are discarded.

Each player lays 4 cards face down. The remaining cards serve as supplies

The zero card is placed in the middle of the playing field as a discard aid. In the course of the game, a stack of numbers is formed for each of the four basic colours from low to high.

During a turn, the players choose one of the four cards in front of them. They are then turned over at the same time.

The player with the next higher number to one of the four primary colors can pile up the card, the remaining players must take their card back. If several players have the same difference to a stack value, they can discard the card together. Provided, of course, that another player cannot make a smaller raise step with his card.

The winner(s) of the turn must place the card on the pile where the raise step is lowest. If there are several options you can choose.

After each turn, the player who has discarded a card may again discard a fourth card from his deck.

The first person without cards wins the game. 

In the reward packages you can select the game as a DOUBLE FEAUTURE together with 49 shades of grey (2018).

Risks and challenges

The card game 49 shades darker is ready for printing in Switzerland. I already released the game "49 shades of grey" last year, which was financed by Kickstarter. The reward was sent out earlier than planned.

There are always risks of production delays, but whatever problems arise, I will quickly resolve any issues. There's nothing more important for me than getting your rewards delivered on time.

The similar name to a famous book und movie has been clarified und doesn't represent a problem.
