Win auctions, take wickets. Lose auctions, score runs.
Ten Wickets is a two-player cricket game. Each wicket in Ten Wickets is an auction, where, whenever you win that auction, your opponent scores your winning bid while losing an end game bonus. This immediate gain and long term loss keeps the tension in the game until the last wicket falls. The game ends when one player takes Ten Wickets and the player with the highest score wins.
"A fantastic piece of game design" - Tom Moore (Nerds of the West)
You play the role of a team captain trying to coax your opponent into giving up wickets cheaply or manoeuvring them into a situation where they have to. You'll do this through clever bidding and hand management.
