Trade Raid is a new card game in which rapid exchange of cards takes place
between all the players with the aim of collecting all the cards belonging
to a set. There are 7 sets of 9 cards each and 3 bonus cards; totally 66
cards. The game-play is very easy to learn; a couple of rounds will teach
you the rules of the game perfectly, but there is also room for basic
strategy and calculative thinking once you get accustomed to the game. It
involves enough shouting, snatching and grabbing to make it an exciting,
highly sensorial and mood uplifting experience.
The game inspires active participation and interactivity by all players.
People from all age groups can play Trade Raid. The game is thrilling not
only for the players but spectators enjoy watching it too. The current theme
of the game is for an Indian audience but the game-play can be adapted to
universal themes also. This game has great re-playability and offers the
possibility of inventing new games with the same deck of cards.
The game has been tested with people from the ages of 8 to 50 and found to
be engaging at every point. Trade Raid has received praise during the India
HCI Conference 2010 and has been featured in Kyoorius Design Magazine in
