DANVERS, Mass., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Winning Moves Games announced today the release of Booray, the fast-paced card game that's heating up card game tables in New Orleans and beyond.  Dubbed the "hot and spicy poker game," Booray is an easy-to-learn trick-taking game, similar to hearts and poker.

Booray's deck of 52 custom-designed playing cards features iconic New Orleans images, such as riverboats, streetcar trolleys, jazz musicians and Bourbon Street.  Players begin each round with five cards and try to accumulate the most tricks by playing the highest card of the lead (or trump) suit during each round of play.  If a player does not win any tricks during the round, they have gone "Booray" and must match the pot using their "Booray Bucks" for the next round of play.

"Booray is one of the best-playing card games ever created, with stakes that quickly rise – and with play money you can have all the fun you want with your friends," says Phil Orbanes, a noted game historian and founder of Winning Moves Games.
