Dutch Blitz Review

According to the Dutch Blitz website, the game was invented...

Dutch Blitz® is a fast-paced card game meant to test your skills, smarts, and speed, and is potentially both the best and worst thing that has happened to me in the world of gaming. I was introduced to this game at Family Game Night about 3 months ago, and my life has never been the same since.

Ok not actually, but a little.

So, in my youth I played "Spit" which is more or less this game with a regular 52 card deck and the result is that I have the logic and clock speed burned permanently into my brainstem for this play. After you get about 100 hands in the game just happens, whether you're paying attention or not.

I was visiting the north Baltimore game group when Mike B brought this out and frankly, I didn't know what it was. In theory it was everybody's first time playing, but my brain knew otherwise. Halfway through the first set the tape backup of the skillset needed for this game came online and I positively crushed everyone at the table. It was almost embarrassing. But I couldn't turn off the muscle memory.

I recognized it as Spit at the outset, but if you had asked me (and they might have) I'd have told you that yeah, I knew how to play but I was 30 years rusty and would probably not do very well. It didn't take long for that to be disproven.

With four experienced, sharp players this can one hell of a ride. It's one of those games that looks too elementary to warrant your attention, but when things start to roll hold on for dear life. It's not uncommon for players to call dear friends and loved ones names that shall not be repeated on a family web site.

I've played Dutch Blitz a couple of times and both loved and hated it. I am not naturally very good at real time reaction speed games, but in a fun crowd i enjoyed it.

I played Spit in my youth as well, and have a similar set of muscle memories burned into my brain.

Right arm only, though. If you're not playing with one arm behind your back, you're not playing Spit.
