"Skull and Roses is the quintessence of bluffing, a game in which everything is played in the players’ heads. Each player plays a face down card, and then each player on turn adds one, until someone feels safe enough to state that he can turn a number of cards face up, and get only roses. Other players can then overbid him, saying they can turn even more cards face up. Highest bidder must then turn the cards face up, starting with his own ones. If he gets only roses, he wins. If he turns a skull, he loses. That’s all. Skull and Roses is not a game of luck, it’s a game of poker face and meeting eyes."
