How to play:
How It Works:
It's simple but addictive and can get quite challenging in Medium or Hard mode! You get four cards, but only peek at two. Your goal? Have the lowest points when the match ends.
Special Cards to Watch Out For:
- 🃏 Joker subtracts points from your score.
- 👑 Jack mixes up gameplay, swapping cards or shuffling an opponent's hand.
- 👸 Queen lets you sneak a peek at one of your face-down cards when discarded.
- 🖤 Black Kings add a big 40 points, so play them carefully.
- ❤️ Red Kings are a relief with zero points.
- 💖 The rare Sovereign Queen lets you see all your cards, but if you keep her, she adds 50 points!
Stay Alert with the "Jump In" Move:
If you remember one of your hidden cards matches the discard pile, play it! But if you're wrong, you'll draw a penalty card.
Treasure Chest Cards and Their Abilities:
- Sovereign Queen: A rare card that reveals all of a player's cards when held.
- Infesting Rat: Play it, and this card finds its way into an opponent's hand, being worth 20 points, that cannot be discarded.
- The Clairvoyant: While kept in your hand, it illuminates the points of all players.
- The Wizard: When a player has blasted and this card is played, take everyone’s cards and redistribute them randomly. This card stops the blast.
- The Thief: When played, the player may choose to swap one bad cards with a good one from anywhere in the game.
- The Noble: When held, prevents any harmful action of another player, like a shuffle.
- The Alchemist: Swap a card from your hand with a card of lower value from the main pile.
Think You're Winning? Call "Blast"!
If you think you have the lowest points, shout "blast". Everyone gets one more move, then cards are revealed. The winner has the fewest points (in case of point tie, the player with the fewer number of cards wins).
