The Blood of an Englishman is a random-setup, open-information card game for two players aged 10 and up that takes about 30 minutes. One player takes the role of Jack, and his opponent plays the Giant, who is trying to capture Jack before he can run off with his gold, his harp and the goose that lays the golden eggs.


Jack must complete three Beanstalk Stacks to win the game. The Giant is trying to catch Jack by arranging his Fe, Fie, Fo and Fum cards to corner and finally trap him.


A 50-card play deck, including:

  • 36 black beanstalk cards (4 copies of each numbered 1 through 9)
  • 6 blue treasure cards (2 each of Gold, goose and harp)
  • 8 red giant cards (2 each of Fe, Fie, Fo and Fum)

In addition, there are 4 player aid cards, 2 summarizing Jack’s moves and 2 summarizing the Giant’s moves. Players may want to refer to these during the game.
