The Crew is a cooperative trick-taking card game.

You and your fellow players are off to explore a mysterious new planet at the edge of the solar system. 50 increasingly challenging missions tell  the story of your crew's journey to Planet 9. 

How well can you work together when communication is limited as you cross the vast expanse of space?

If you know any classic card games, you start on familiar ground with The Crew. But be ready! Once launched, these missions will bend your brain and blast your expectations about something as time-tested as trick-taking.

Games can warp our brains. 

The Crew does this in a way that lasts. Listen in to find out how and discover why it earns our Spiel of Approval.

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
