A classic among attractions at carnivals is the "high striker" game, a challenge for visitors to gauge their strength with a group of buff dudes smashing a lever with all the strength they can. Whoever launches the puck the highest wins the most prize tickets!
Mucho Macho — winner of the 2015/2016 edition of the Gioco Inedito, the "best unpublished game" contest held by Lucca Comics & Games and dV Giochi — recreates this carnival attraction in a card game. Gameplay is super easy! Choose two cards (which range in value from 00 to 99) to swing the hammer. The strongest player chooses two prize cards first, but must place the lower-numbered prize (which is worth more points) in their hand. Can you gather more prizes than everyone else and prove that you are the most macho?
