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!

Contents: 1 game board, 5 wooden whisky barrels, 55 cards, 1 rule booklet, all in a box approximately 20 x 20 x 3cm
