Thanks to Sean Ross for offering his game Haggis (BGG) in the Games by Spielers for Spielers forum! It is a variation on a classic ladder-style card game. Looks really interesting. And with a name like Haggis, how can you go wrong? Download Haggis from our forums.
I'm sure there are some goofs in there somewhere. Let us know if (when?) you find one!
