Great game! From all the LD46 games I played I found this one of the more interesting game. It has good audio, good art and animations look juicy. Only thng you could improve is to make the player understand better what the top pile of card do and when they influence the game (for me that was unclear). But for a game jam game this is very great! And I can even see this as an alright game outside the game jam.
