Description:

This Stronghold game by Mike Fitzgerald is a trick-taking card game in which players collect Diamonds - not cards bearing that suit, mind you, but rather actual "Diamond Crystals". What makes the game of Diamonds different from other trick-taking card games is that when you cannot follow suit you get a "Suit Action" based on what suit you do play. Suit Actions are also taken by the winner of each trick, as well as at the end of a full Round of play. Whoever has the most points in Diamond Crystals at the end of the game wins!

The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a free badge for Gen Con 2020, free crash space for 3 nights (with up to 3 other winners) at Gen Con 2020, plus a seat at the final round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2020!
