Set Up, Game Play & Game End

Round Up

Not much to say about this one! Move a stick and (hopefully) discard a card… that’s it!

There is a little bit of luck if the pattern evolves around to your turn so it’s worked perfectly that you can make a good play.

But, there is also a bit of memory. If you can’t discard you’ll want to make sure someone can, or no one can depending on which you feel is best. This means you’ll need to remember which cards have been discarded already and either repeat one of those cards or not.

So, a good balance of luck vs tactics and although it can burn the brain a little, it’s simple enough that you can just sit, play and chat.


A very enjoyable and relaxing game,

I give it 8/10
