Sign

(2015)

With two other Mountain Men we successfully kickstarted, produced and distributed the card game Sign. Sign is a quick and fast-paced card game designed for friend or family. It can be described as a mix of Poker and Set because of the intricate card design. Sign plays fast, which makes it an ideal evening starter or can be played at caf├ęs or bars. Players form teams and create non-verbal signs to win. Once a round begins players must collect a set of five cards with the same symbol. The rules seem simple, but it quickly becomes difficult when you must pay attention to all the players and collect cards at the same time, without turns.

While playing Sign the suspense will rapidly build. Cards will fly across the table followed by mischievous glances back and forth! You look into her eyes, what is she hiding? Was that a Sign? Or is she on to you?! Have you got what it takes to play?
