Simple, easy to learn, fast play (60 minutes), but puzzling to play! Do you go for high hand, or the top of a pyramid? The more you play this game, the less you understand its strategy. That's because the secret to winning is to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing!

Show up early, and have someone teach you to play. Then just do the opposite of whatever strategy advice he gives you!

Tables will be randomly assigned to groups of five players (or 6 or 4 as needed). Winners of either heat then advance to the semifinals. Ideally, we will have a 5-player Final, but 6-players or 4-players also work well if so dictated by the field.

Non-critical table talk is allowed, but spectators are only allowed to gasp, smirk, wink, or feint.

Version Differences: More recent versions of the game have a couple differences from the German version. The following rules will be used:
1. Players begin with 30 florins regardless of the number of players.
2. The 5-florin bonus spot is not paid.
3. The payment for high hand is as follows.
4-players: (30, 20, 10, 0)
5-players: (30, 20, 10, 5, 0)
6-players: (30, 20, 10, 10, 5, 0)

If players argue over choice of colors, the youngest player chooses first (except that the GM always gets to play purple with pink polka dots.)

An original mint Collegiate Crew board game will be given to the best finish among the losers in the Final who have a last name other than Cornett. The game will even be signed by the author AND any other Cornett who finishes ahead of you in the Final.
