Product Description

Rainbow is a quick-playing card game in which you're trying to collect the most points. The deck consists of sixty cards, ten each of 1-6; to start the game cards equal to the number of players are dealt face-up in the center of the table, then the remainder of the cards are distributed evenly among the players. (With 2-3 players, the cards are dealt in two piles and twice as many cards as players are revealed.)

Whoever leads in the first round plays a run of at least two cards in numerical order, a set of at least two cards with the same value, or a single card. If the lead plays a run, then all other players can lay down a run or a single card; if the lead plays a set, then they can play a set or single card; if the lead plays a single card, then that's all you can do, too. Once everyone has played, players take turns claiming a single card from the center of the table, with the player who laid down the most cards going first. If two or more players played the same number of cards, then whoever laid the highest cards claims first. If the high cards are the same, then the one who played first claims first.

Once everyone has claimed a card and set it aside in an individual score pile, all the cards played in the first round are moved to the center. The player who claimed first now plays a run, set or single card with the other players following. From the second round on, players can claim and score two cards of the same value or one card. As soon as at least two players have no cards in their hand, the game ends and whoever has collected the most points wins.
