Press info:Based on a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson:

The Bottle Imp

The bottle grants its owner power and prosperity time of his live. But if he dies before he could sell it he goes to hell straight away.

There is a peculiarity about the bottle: It cannot be sold at all, unless sold at a loss. At a price of 2 cents the bottle will be hard enough to sell...

In the card game the bottle imp helps the players to get tricks worth while, but will one ever again get rid of the doomed bottle?

A devilish trick taking game...
