Game Play Variations
To mix things up, try these twists on the basic rules.
Instead of requiring the player who ends the round to have all NUMBER cards paired up, this variation allows for three-of-a-kinds as well.
Advantage: Makes it easier to end a round.
Disadvantage: Less challenging to qualify to end a round.
Every pair of NUMBER cards is worth 10 points, no matter what numbers are on the cards.
Advantage: Easier to tabulate points at the end of a round.
Disadvantage: Eliminates the strategy of getting more points for NUMBER cards with higher values.
A complete game lasts for three rounds and whoever has the highest score after those three rounds is the winner.
Advantage: May lead to shorter games as some games in the regular rules last longer.
Disadvantage: May lead to games that are TOO short.
