The Game: Are you ready to play? 2nd Edition - Includes expansion
"The Game: Are you ready to play?" 2nd Edition
Included the expansion "The Game on Fire"
The 2015 Speil Des Jahrs nominee is back with a brand new edition! The Game: On Fire adds even more fun to one of the most addictive games to come out in recent years.
If you like the The Game, you’ll love the added challenge The Game: On Fire brings.
In The Game: On Fire, 1-5 players work together to try and discard 98 cards into 4 different piles while never telling each other exactly which cards they’re holding. Adding fuel to the fun are the new "On Fire" cards, which MUST be played on when they hit the table.
"The Game: Are you ready to play?" is a co-operative card game for 1-5 players.
In "The Game", you’ll have to work together with your friends to play cards on to one of four piles, with the hopes
of discarding all 98 cards. But there are rules as to which cards can go on to which discard pile, and as you
cannot tell your friends what cards you have in your hand, the other players in the game may ruin your best laid
How To Play :
At the start of the game set up the four discard pile prompt cards on the table: two showing "1" and an up arrow
(1 UP) and two showing "100" and a down arrow (100 DOWN).
Each player starts by drawing 6-8 cards from the deck, depending on the number of players.
Each turn, a player must discard at least two cards from hand onto the discard piles, with cards on the "1 UP"
piles being placed in ascending order and cards on the "100 DOWN" piles being placed in descending order.
You can also play a card that is exactly 10 higher/lower than the top card of a discard pile, so if a "100 Down"
discard pile is topped with an 49, you can either :
play a lower card (eg. 48 or lower )
you can play a card that is exactly 10 higher (the 59)
After a player finishes their turn, they refill their hand from the deck.
Once the deck is emptied, players are required only to play at least one card on a turn. If you play all 98 cards,
you win! If you get good, the rules suggest that you play at least three cards a turn to increase the challenge.
