Starting with a card between 1 and 36, players have to decide whether the next turned up card will be higher or lower to accumulate points... but this is no game of random luck!


Counters mark which numbers have already been used on a simple mat, and players can easily see the chances of each call they make.


Each time you choose correctly, you accumulate a point in the 'holding area', and have the chance to choose higher or lower again from the new number, and get another point each time you guess correctly.


BUT... guess incorrectly and lose all the points from that turn! The only way to keep your points is to elect to stop, at which point the next player continues from the current number.

 


Extra care is needed on the first guess of each of your turns too! You can elect to guess and start earning more points, but get your first guess wrong and you will lose HALF of all the points you have in your 'bank'!!!

Or, if its too risky, pass straight away to the next player, but this will cost you one point from your bank. If you've nothing in your bank, you have to play.


Players on low points at the start of their turn, receive an extra go if they get their first call wrong.


So while this is a brilliant game of risk for anyone to play, it's also perfect for developing numerical and probability skills with children of all ages!


Older players will love the banter, and finding ways to formulate different strategies.



Most gamers of any genre, usually have a selection of filler games at hand to fill in those idle moments before and after game sessions.


Here's one to add to your collection that combines fun and playability. It ticks another box too that's familiar to all gamers.


You're in a game and it's soon evident in the time that's left that you cannot win it.


The beauty of SAVVY as one player put it, is that you're never out of it, and you can win the game from anywhere.

 

SAVVY is a Push Your Luck party board game where the odds move between all levels of doubt and certainty.



Easy to learn, and just two rules. A humorous filler game. Learn new skills, and get set for wicked humour.


Don’t be fooled into thinking that SAVVY is a simple game.


It’s got strategy, odds judgement that will tax even the brightest minds, and levels of addiction that compels you to get involved with other players decisions.


You may find yourself encouraging players to go for it, when really you want them to blow out and drop points.


Oh there’s humour alright.



Then there’s your playing style. Are you an odds calculator who plays the percentages?


Or an instinct player who gets the feel of the cards and plays accordingly?


Or never mind all that, you feel lucky and call whatever comes into your head; it's your day right?


So back to the game, do you play, or pass and give the next player something to think about? No thanks there!


Get it wrong and there are penalties. Get it right and you’re on a roll.



Correct calls win points. Fifteen points will win it. You can be nearly there, and then start falling back to zero.


Can you handle the sympathy?


Then there is the fantastic help from your fellow players.


If you want to follow it, dream on – you’re in the wrong game.


Banter has no boundaries here, and some of the advice on offer would make your progress very backward indeed.



Sometimes you will remember a game for the laughs you had, the winner is irrelevant, well nearly. That’s how game sessions go.


Lots of humour and constant dilemmas. SAVVY is a one-off rollercoaster.


Master the art of ‘When To Stop’. Judge the moments well and take the kudos. Gain the SAVVY status.

When we first trialled the finished rules on Christmas night 2015, our youngest player was the neighbours child from across the green.


We showed him the concept of what to do, and guided him for a while on the best way to play.



He played cautiously and lo and behold, won all three games.


A feat which has not been equalled since.


So to Owen who was six and three quarters then, we salute you!


He's welcome back anytime he's changed his winning ways.


For 2-6 players, aged 8 and upwards, and a playing time of 10-40 minutes.


 
Boardgamegeek.com  Aug2017 ChessScholar:  " Easy to learn, the game can be enjoyed at any age. Guessing whether the next card will be higher or lower does not seem very demanding. However, the value of this game is in learning to improve your strategy. How far should you press your luck? Keep your margins safe to avoid guessing wrongly but if you are too cautious you cannot win. Each player pushes to the limit. There are analytical similarities with blackjack/pontoon. Mathematicians like this game and will no doubt find the optimal strategy in due course. It is surprising that this game has not been designed earlier because it has the feel of a "classic.


I bought this at the UKGamesExpo 2017 where its designer explained to me the extensive research he had undertaken before spotting this gap in the mathematical games market. Please buy a copy and encourage more games like this - simple but fundamental".

As SAVVY is a new game on the market, reviews will be as rare as unicorns.


We officially launched at the UK Games Expo at Birmingham 2017.


All games played with visitors at the NEC and subsequently at Camden market, led to sales there and then.


When couples stepped in and played, the women won - find out why.


But even though players enjoy the game, this does not translate into immediate feedback, so please bear with us if you like to read more reviews before you buy.
