Sponsio is a family-strategy game in which you take part in the greatest fights with your gladiator cards. Try to win the fights by taking tricks… or not, because you placed bets on them earlier.
This game is all about bets!
You have four turns to set your aims for an atypical trick-taking game. You can bet on tricks taken, on the number of cards of a given colour in your takes, on the last trick, on the aces taking, and on your opponents failing. You can have up to four bets, but - instead of betting - you can choose other actions as well: increase the chances of your bets, double the odds, change one of your bets, etc.
Seems simple, until you discover Sponsio's tactical depth… “read” the actions of your opponents and find the best combinations to build your highest scoring!
