Go on an adventure into Ireland's past and see where it takes you!

Multiple variations in one box! Build strategy as each variation is added. Match cards in suits to collect points and scéalta (pron. shcale-ta: stories in Gaelic). Discard or play a dark mythology card against your opponent, its special ability in your control. Save cards to counter their attacks. Use Shamrocks to extend turns! and don't forget about the Leprechaun and Faery as wild cards with magic powers!

Wonderful fun immersed in the culture and country of Ireland.

Seanchai is suitable for kids age 12+ all the way to adults at 88!

We also have a children's version starting at 5 (in the same box!)

The world is rich in diversity of culture.  In the United States, there is a meeting of many cultures and the ones people came from can be forgotten over generations.  

We strive to preserve Celtic heritage for Americans of Celtic descent so they may be connected to the threads of their past, present, and future.
