Winners will advance to the quarter finals to play for the title of US National Champion, with a special prize!
This new Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds - not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual "Diamond Crystals". What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a "Suit Action" based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins! Players may play in any or all of the 5 preliminary rounds. Winners will advance to the quarter finals to play for the title of U.S. National Champion, with a special prize from Stronghold Games!
Warnings: The event was originally listed with rules of "Diamonds (1st)." It has been changed to "Diamonds (1st Edition)."
