The Weatherslam Card Game is where “the sky’s the limit” and you get to “conquer the seasons!” Manufactured in 1982 by K.K. Corner under the U.C.C. copyright, Weatherslam is an exciting, easy-to-learn, bidding game, pitting the four seasons of the calendar year and opposing players against each other in a lightning-fast game for survival. The object of the game is to overpower your opponents and achieve game score by capturing their high-point storm "fronts" (or tricks). The number of hands to win a game will largely depend on the number of participating players. Most games can easily be played in less than an hour.
The Weatherslam deck consists of 56 beautifully-designed cards depicting violent storms systems (such hurricanes and typhoons) or balmy weather conditions for each season of the year. Players, through spirited bidding, vie for the privilege of declaring Seasonal Trump (that is, Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter). The season that is named Trump, of course, has power over the other seasons in a hand of play.
Weatherslam is in great vintage condition. The cards are free of tears, creases and frayed edges. A rule book and score pad are included, which are also in wonderful condition. Only the game box shows signs of shelf wear and usage. (Review accompanying photographs for condition issues.)
For those who enjoy games of strategic thinking along with an element of chance, the Weatherslam Card Game is an ideal find! This one will provide hours of great yet challenging family entertainment.
