Time to get in touch with those board game feelings, as Heul doch! Mau Mau invites you to cry away those losses as you concede points to your opponents.

Heul doch! Mau Mau literally translates as 'Go Cry! Mau Mau' - Mau Mau is a German card game similar to crazy eights. In Heul doch! Mau Mau, you begin with a card face up in front of you, and four cards in your hand. There are 98 cards in the deck, each one numbered 1-7 in two lots of seven sets of colours.


Ideally, you will be able to play your card on top of your deck, matching either the colour or number. However, if your card can't be played on your deck, it might be playable on your neighbour's deck. In which case, bad luck my teary friend! Concede those points and place that card on their deck instead.


Some cards may not match any deck, or you may not want to concede those points. In which case, you can play your card face down, showing the crying onion on the back, and continue a new sequence of your choosing on the next turn. However, when the points are scored, any onions are deducted from your total, so use that weeping vegetable at your peril!

Heul doch! Mau Mau is well designed, simple-to-learn, fast-to-play, and incredibly fun to shout at competitors (or around the OnTabletop office). It will be released by Ravensburger in early 2019.

Quiz Time: Onions make you cry, but what fruit eats you back?

"Use that weeping vegetable at your peril!"
