This is a game we've been playing the past ten years or so in the Potomac group. It's a trick-taking game for 4 to 8 players, using a standard deck, in which each player bids to take an exact number of tricks. It resembles the traditional game Oh Hell, and the commercial games Canyon, Wizard, and Xactika, but with some twists. Some people hate it, others (including me) consider it one of their very favorite games. Complete rules and some background can be found at

The URL for the Potomac Blackout webpage in my review above has been updated. If that doesn't work, try a Google search on Potomac Blackout. Since the author of the page (Wei-Hwa Huang) now works for Google, the page ought to stay accessible.

In his first review of this game, Doug said, "Some people hate it, others (including me) consider it one of their very favorite games."... I'm one of the people who hate it.

Also, so you don't need to search for it, I just did a Yahoo! search for Potomac Blackout. The first result is titled "Potomac Blackout Home Page," and the URL for it is http://www.ofb.net/~whuang/ugcs/gp/gcom/blackout.html
