Tug of war in the Scottish highlands Players play cards instead of using their own muscle-power in this Scottish tug-of-war game. A player can play cards on either side of the rope: high cards on his side and, naturally, low cards on the other. With an energetic "heave-ho!", players compare their strengths and move the whisky barrel in the direction of the strongest team. Beware: both players have access to a handful of tricks! Traitors can exist on both sides. The rope can break! Or Nessie can join one side to help or feed! At the end, the player who has the whisky barrel on his side of the board, wins the round. But a full match is the best of five rounds!
I played this game with my 12 year old brother-in-law, Josh. We had a good time and played it 2 weekends in a row. It has many elements of game play. Strategy, memorization, and speed all come into play at different times in the game. It's an easy to learn, fun, and short game played in about 30 minutes.

|I tried this out finally and it's really a light weight, fun game that appeals to non-gamers too. I really have a good laugh and some cunning-expressions exchange with my non-gamer friends while playing this. I only wish it can be played with more players but it will be a big conflict against the theme. Highly recommended as a entry level game.
|Quick, fun, semi-mindless game that's good for just kicking back and having a good time with a friend! Plus, who doesn't love a game that pokes slight fun at the Scottish?! :)
