How will you earn your spurs in this untamed land? Will you help settle the town? Blaze a trail to new discoveries? Mine for gold? Or turn to a life of lawlessness? Choose your strategy and keep your guns at the ready!
Fliptown is a strategic flip & write game for 1 or more players in which you are trying to earn the most stars by exploring a wild west town. The game uses a standard poker deck to drive an open world-style of game play, along with game sheets that serve as each player’s map.
Each turn, flip over three cards, assigning one card to represent your suit, one card to represent your value, and one card to represent your poker card. The suit dictates which of four regions you activate, the value dictates which site within that region you get to circle, and the poker card goes toward a five-card poker hand that is resolved at the end of each round. Each of the four regions — Trail, Badlands, Mine, and Town — offers a different puzzle to master, while each site within a region provides a unique reward such as cash, gold, helpful items like guns, horses and tools, or bonus actions to create powerful combinations.
