Take a Penny

A compact simultaneous secret action selection game of give and take. Plan your moves and prepare to strike. The player with the most pennies when the last one is taken from the pot wins the game unless you shoot the moon and can give them all away.

Take a penny pot setup

Choose from eight available actions each round. Be sure to consider what your opponents will do!

Take pennies from the pot, put some back, or prevent others from doing so. Take pennies from your opponents or give them one to prevent them from shooting the moon. Block to defend yourself, but be careful: you can't pick the same action twice in a row!

Whether you try to horde the most pennies or shoot the moon by ending the game with none, keep an eye on the other players' banks as an opponent will win if you tie!
