|Subject: Extra Rules|
Posted Mar 11, 2004 by 5th Earth (speaker to the void)
|When I've played it, there has been one more rule: if a player puts down two cards, then all subsequent players MUST put down (or claim) AT LEAST two of their cards. If a player puts down three, then all subsequent players must place at least three, etc. This buildup resets every time the highest card is put down--if you are playing kings high, then once the kings are played the next player may place just one ace, no matter how many kings were played.|
This has the effect of forcing players to lie in situations where it is blatantly obvious they are doing so--for instance, if you have 4 sixes and a seven in your hand, then by playing all four sixes you know the next player MUST by lying when he or she claims "4 sevens". Unless it's a two-pack game, of course.
Of course, you can also inflate the round through the usual methods of putting down the wrong cards for what you say they are--claiming three fives when one is a seven suddenly has an entirely new ramification beyond just ditching the extra card.
