It's the classic suburban conflict of unreturned tools, loud neighbors, and prize-winning garden gnomes from Reiner Knizia. This simple gateway card game has players starting with low-value cards then escalating the values until someone goes too far and penalizes their neighbor with the stack of cards. When the deck runs out and a player's hand is empty, the player with the least cards in his stack wins.
One player opens with a card or cards and calls out the value played. The next player must play cards to surpass that value, and so on, escalating the value until the point where a player does not wish to or cannot go above that value, thus taking the stack of cards and placing them in her penalty stack. A simple card game in the tradition of No Thanks!

I wanted this game because the artwork and theme intrigued me. Neither one has much to do with the game. About the only connector I have found to the theme is that you can "screw your neighbor" as the saying goes by placing a high value down so they will most likely have to take the pile. The game play is a half step above mindless and the artwork has absolutely nothing to do with the game. This game could easily be played with numbered cards if you had enough. I would highly recommend "No Thanks!" over this juvenile mess.
The instructions are printed on one playing card. Enough said.
