2015 GM

2006 Consul





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!

Come early, and have someone teach you to play. Then completely ignore any strategy advice you are given!

Heats will consist of 4-player games (5-players only if there are extra players).

Semifinals will consist of 5-player games (6-players if there are more than 30 available heat winners). Heat Runner-up alternates will be used only as needed to fill the field to exactly 15, 20, 25, 30, or 35 semifinalists.

The Final will have exactly six players. Runner-up semifinalists will advance to the Finals as needed.

The GM-specific tiebreaker will be the closest runner-up finish based on the number of victory points behind the winner. If still tied, high die roll advances. Average finish or percent points behind the leader tiebreaker rules will not apply.

Table talk is allowed and even encouraged among players (not spectators). However, new players would be wise to do exactly the opposite of whatever "good advice" you are given!

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.)
