Smile

Lucky to leave you smiling

Designer: Michael Schacht | Artist: Atha Kanaani

Furry critters, shiny therefiies, some bluffng, a little bit of calculation, but mostly luck, and a name that seems to fit neither gameplay nor the theme – that is Smile.

Even its most believable part, where some critters scare each other of, feels tacked-on; the in-game translation of this concept is that critters with the same colour in the top corner cancel each other out. The only real reason for the theme to exist is the art on the cards and box, which, indeed, is gorgeous and humorous.
