Gameplay

Creativity is the key of the game. 5 cards in hand can you build that perfect hand.

Basics

Stage 1 – Draw 5 cards each.

Stage 2 – Each player may discard up to 3 cards. (starting to deal from the left)

Stage 3 – Hands are laid.  Biggest points are best but the headline has to make sense.

Acceptable – “Blind Dog Weeps for Mayor”

Unacceptable – “Vaccine Tells on Blonde”

Stage 4 – Scoring.

 

Advanced

In any card game, its about building your hand and on numerous occasions we ended up getting a dud headline – But scored high in later rounds.  Using higher scoring cards for ending round victories are key.

Overall

The card game is pretty good from a person who has played many card games this was a good pick up.
