It begins so innocently. Play a card from your hand onto the Froop, an amorphous pile of cards in the middle of the table, so that two symbols on your card match up with the symbols on the Froop below it. It's simple, it's fun, it keeps you thinking, but not so much that you can't carry on a conversation while you play. Then you start adding in the optional rules, and suddenly the game becomes cut-throat, demands quick wits, or takes on the tactics of a classic board game. You mix and match the variants, and your mind begins to reel from the strategic possibilities. Then you go one step further and combine them all, and your brain oozes out your ears.

Like a game of Chess or Go that can be played by up to 10 players simultaneously and fits in your pocket, "Froop!" includes instructions in over a dozen different languages, meaning you can play it with virtually anyone, virtually anywhere.

"Froop!" is Savant Garde Entertainment's initial foray into abstract strategy games, with a scalable rules system that runs the gamut from a light family or party game to teeth-grinding strategy or frantic speed-play.
