Forrrre! A Card Game For Golfers
By Kickntrue on 11/23/10
When I received Forrre! in the mail I was skeptical. After a few games around the office- I'm sold. It's pretty darn fun.
The game game itself is pretty simple. You play with 2 to 5 players- giving each 4 cards in their hand. At the beginning of each turn you draw a card and then play a card (pretty standard card game fare). The played card can either be a "Scoring card" which you lay out in front of you or a card which you apply to another players hand. The "scoring cards" are birdies, pars, eagles, etc. and you have the ability to drop the Shanks on your opponents or wipe out their scores with a "FORRRRE!" which you toss across the table at them taking out their hand. The game ends when one player has 4 scoring cards in front of them at which point you add up the scores and play again. Because you're wiping out each others hands along the way it's not as easy as it sounds.
To me a great card game consists of 3 things. Is it easy to learn? Is there actually thinking/strategy involved? Is it actually fun? A bonus question would be- can drinking be involved and how would that change game play?
For Forrrre! the answer to all 3 (and 4) of these questions is yes. We picked it up on the fly the first time we played. There is actually a good bit of strategy to how you play your hand- because if you just go drop a low score down- it will assuredly be wiped out and yes it is fun. I'm sure of this because I won! As for the "bonus question," I'm not going to spell out specifics- but you'd have no trouble incorporating drinking into the game if you so desired (but maybe more telling is that you don't need to for it to be good).
So when are you going to play Forrrre!? A golf trip. When you're stuck in the clubhouse on rain delay. When you're waiting for the rest of your buddies to show up on poker night. When you and at least one other person have busted out of poker night. Anytime you can convince a woman to play "Strip Forrrre!" So ya, a lot of options.
So yah- by now I sound like a shill for the company- but I assure you I'm not (though I did get a game out of them I will not be giving away). Go buy your own for $10 from Amazon. At that price- it's a nice little stocking stuffer for a golfer on your list- and will be well worth the fun.

I don't know what to say, other than I'm commenting just so you don't have a commentless story.
@Clint24- How nice of you! Well... I guess you could say you're ordering the game! :)
The true golfer will never be so humiliated to play a game for golfers. Had a story about an essaywriter who played golf with students of Lehman College online:) LOL.
