Blindes Huhn ("Blind Hens") is a bluffing card game with bidding mechanisms. You start with a set of eight chicken cards with values from 1 to 3 in your display in front of you. The auctioneer draws three cards from a pile and decides to show one or two of these cards to the other players; the other card(s) are kept secret. The auctioneer makes a bid, then the other players in clockwise order may make theirs. The highest bid wins the three cards from the pile — and has to pay with the cards from his display.
The cards in the pile bring more value to your chicken (1-4) and blind hens, which is three points minus alone, but +5 together with a Golden Corn. A single Corn is worth 2 points.
The 2015 edition of Blindes Huhn has mouse and hawk symbols on the cards for a variety of additional options and rules, making this new edition more than a simple reprint.
