Accumulating sets is the aim of the game, it's holding onto them that's the trick! Sets are worth points, and highest score wins the game. Taking an opponent's set is easy, but beware: It's not what you take, it's what you keep that counts. With players matching and stealing sets faster than you can say "Ruckus," fortunes change quickly. Until the final card is played, it's anybody's game!
Just got back from a family vacation with my wife, our four grown children and five grandchildren, two of game playing ages eight and ten. It's always difficult to choose which of our many games will accompany us; you can only pack so much. Tsuro came with us. Blockus came with us. Nuns on the Run came with us. Tobago came with us. But, no game received as wildly and widely an enthusiastic reception and calls for replay as this inexpensive card game. The opportunities to steal cards from other players only to have them stolen from you seconds later by another player kept everyone good naturedly complaining while, at the same time, seeking oppportunities for revenge or merely a chance to steal from anybody at the table. Those who didn't win always cried out for another game to get even. This is a game best played with four players; there's not enough action with only two since there's no surprise as to who will be stealing from whom no chance that a glorious acquisition of cards will be taken right from under your nose at the very moment you acquired them. But, with four players, this game is a lot of fun; it was for this group of gamers whose ages range from eight to sixty.
