Doublehead Kids (Doppelkopf for families) – 3rd Edition

Gamebox (prototype) 3rd Edition

(10/2021; Update 01/2022) We are currently working on the 3rd edition. In particular, our goal is to present the game in the 3rd edition in a nice gamebox. We are currently having the first version of the gamebox made as a prototype to gain experience with the typesetting of the graphics and also to be able to send the game to some boardgame bloggers.

In the 3rd edition we will add a new expansion called “Doublehead Kids – Challenge”. In addition to the actual gameplay, challenges must be completed to earn additional victory points. The challenges promote the strategic learning of the game Doppelkopf and bring additional fun.

Further additional cards, goodies and a revision of the rulebook will be available. The game will again be offered in several versions, depending on whether only the base game with instructions or expansions (White Expansion, Doppelkopf-Deck-DDV) are included.

We will offer the 3rd edition together with our new card deck “Doppelkopf 2.0 – the classic game rethought” (view) via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign is live.

Doublehead Kids (Doppelkopf for families) – 2nd Edition

Theofilos from Boardgame Stories says: “If you are in a mood for a casual card game, which is easy to learn and play while being quite tactical, this might be the one for you! There are not many games out there that strictly play in teams, and that’s always a fun aspect. This element lets you bluff, be cutthroat and cooperate, at the same time! That’s the case as you try to find your teammate during the first battles of the game, creating some interesting decisions and situations.” (Read full report)

DOUBLEHEAD KIDS is based on the popular german Doppelkopf trick-taking game. Play Doppelkopf with these beautiful family-friendly cards. Easy to learn – long game fun.

The Doppelkopf-Game finds more and more enthusiastic fans and supporters, who organize themselves in clubs and even in the German Doppelkopf Association (DDV). Doppelkopf even manages to replace the extremely popular game Skat as the favourite card game of the Germans. Doppelkopf probably originated from the game “Schafkopf”, which already had a set of rules since 1895. 

Game Principle

Dive into a series of exciting card battles and play togehter in everchanging teams! You must gain valuable Silver Coins by skillfully using your cards. Whoever gains the most, courageously encountering their opponents, wins Golden Coins, the game’s victory points. The first player to earn a predetermined number of Gold Coins wins the game!

The Twist

The twist of the game is that at the beginning of a new round players do not know their teammate. Only when the Prince and Princess Cards (“Team”) are laid out bit by bit, the picture becomes clearer and the players recognize in which team they are playing. In Team Prince/Princess (players with Prince and Princess Cards) or in Team Without (players without Prince and Princess Cards). Each round of the game is played differently and in different teams.

Doublehead Kids was successfully funded through 2 Kickstarter campaigns in 2019 and 2020. We thank you very much for your support.
