THERE ARE 2 DECKS:
HOUSE DECK- cards 1-10 - One House Card is automatically dealt to each player at the start of their turn
POWER DECK - Players choose 10 cards from this deck to put in their “Power Deck” for the game. Four of these cards are then drawn at random to use in the game. These four cards are not refreshed during the playing of the rounds. Players can choose to play 1 Power Card during a turn, after the House Card has been played.
Remember: when a power card is played on your board, it is used up and will be removed from your deck inventory. Power cards that are still in your hand at the end of a game are returned to your inventory. You can buy more power cards in the shop using game chipz.
THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF POWER CARDS:
HOUSE POWER CARDS - Unlimited supply for FREE for all players in the deck builder):
POWER BOOST CARDS - Players must buy these cards with Bonez or Chipz to have them added to their deck builder:
Plus OR Minus 1-6 (the player chooses + or - when they play the card)
STEAL - On their turn, a player can steal one played card from their opponent's board. This automatically adds the value of the stolen card to the player's total score. If the opponent has already chosen to stand, using this card will bump them back into gameplay.
DOUBLE - Doubles value of the last card you were dealt from the house deck
TIE BREAKER - Adds +1 or -1 to your score AND then breaks a tie if there is one
RESSURECT - Bring back any card from your graveyard (already played) pile and play it again. This card must be played right away. If the resurrected card was originally played as a + or - card, the card will be re-played with the same + or - status that it had the first time it was played.
REDRAW - Allows the player to re-draw the last House Card that was dealt to them
1 or 11 - Choose for the card to be played as a 1 or an 11
REMEMBER: When a POWER BOOST CARD is played on your board, it is used up and will be removed from your deck inventory. POWER BOOST CARDS that are still in your hand at the end of a game are returned to your inventory. You can buy more power cards in the shop using Chipz or Bonez.
HOUSE POWER CARDS
POWER BOOST CARDS
Each turn, one house card is drawn for you and placed on the table in front of you. The value of this card is added to your score.
You can then choose to play a card from your power card deck to add to your score or influence it in another way. When a POWER BOOST card is played on your board, it is used up and will be removed from your deck inventory. POWER BOOST CARDS that are still in your hand at the end of a game are returned to your inventory.
You can then either play a card from you power hand or end your turn. Only one power card can be played per turn and no more cards are drawn from the house deck.
When ending their turn, the player has two options:
If you end your turn, your opponent begins their turn and a card is automatically drawn from the house deck to their hand.
If you stand, you keep your current score until the end of the round and do not play any other cards.
If one player stands or reaches 21, the opponent can continue playing cards until they choose to stand as well or until they bust.
The winner of the round is then the first player for the next round. In the case of a tie, whoever was not the first player for the tied round is the first player for the next round.
