Goblin Market is a game that uses the Decktet deck of cards
There are six suits available (36 cards), for each suit there's an Ace and a Crow. Between them are the other cards numbered 2 through 9. These each have two suits. There are 3 cards for each numbered card. There are some special cards as "The excuse", "The Pawns" and "The Courts".
The game consist of a series of auctions (full instructions at Main Menu > "How to play" button). The game ends when the Auction Deck is exhausted. Players score points for cards in the three suits of which they've the most and lose points for cards in the remaining suits. The player with the most points wins.
Graphics and effects aren't stunning, but it doesn't matter in this kind of card/board games. Cards dealing and beating system runs quite smoothly (specially when playing against CPU). You can select up to 4 human players or play against CPU.
We appreciate original games, no matter the genre. We're used to review re-makes of old classic games or replicas. This is original, and that's its added-value.
There are six suits available and each card may have one or two suits. You only score points for the top three suits you possess at the end of the game, and LOSE points for any others, so be careful what you bid for or you may find yourself at the bottom of the scoreboard!
At the start of the game the goblins will help by giving you coins to get started, but as the game progresses they get more reluctant to part with their hard-earned wealth. Once that happens, you'll have to rely on the other players for more coins.

Works fine on galaxy Nexus
Very addictive once you figure out the basics. Brian's a genius!
Brilliant game, is this an official game for cards? (i.e. poker blackjack) Hope to see online multiplayer function soon!
Got two sets of actual decktet cards now too! Would love to see more decktet games on android (please!)
... For me to invest in a decktet of my own.
I had never played a game with Decktet cards and now I want to get a set. The new pass and play feature makes it very easy to introduce new people to the game.
Good fun game, can't stop playing it!
