Description
In the Half-Pint Pub, tempers are running hot. You can almost feel the tension in the air. Most patrons have already chosen sides, with very few even trying to stay out of the conflict. So far they're still just throwing insults instead of bar stools, but any moment things could break down into a full-out brawl...

Half-Pint Heroes is an easy-to-learn, but hard to master card game for 2-7 players. Players will play sets of cards from their hands each round to beat the sets of their opponents. You'll also need to be able to correctly assess the strength of your hand in order to predict how many sets you'll win each round. Once the predictions are revealed, players will also be able to bet against each other reaching their goal.

You'll need to stay alert and keep an eye your opponent's plays to avoid letting a brawl break out. If that happens, only one player will walk away a winner...

The game is played over 10 rounds. Points are scored for each winning card set, for correctly predicting your number of winning sets, and for correctly betting against other player's predictions. Additionally, bonus points are scored at the end of the game for the longest streak of correct predictions.
