Sticheln is another card game I introduced at work (after Flaschenteufel and Category 5). Like Flaschenteufal, one of the original things about this game is its trick-taking rules. Unlike almost every other game of its type you DO NOT have to follow the lead color. In fact, every OTHER color is trump. This makes for a decidedly more nasty game. At the beginning of a hand each player picks a 'Misery Suit' and every card you take of that color you will lose the face value of that card. You only gain a single point for every other colour card, so taking a high numbered pain card is (well) painful. This gives the game its tension as you try to avoid certain tricks while still wanting to gain points. However, when the opportunity arises do you rid yourself of a high pain card or inflict pain on another player? Sticheln has a high player range (3 - 8) and so far I have played with 3 and 5. Both were fun, with a chaotic nature being more pronounced with 5.
