Time to play Cookie Monster! In Kookiz, players want to grab as many different types of cookies as possible, preferably big stacks of cookies to keep them out of the hands of other players.
The deck in Kookiz consists of 80 cards, with eight cards of ten types of cookies. Before starting the game, shuffle the cards, deal each player a hand of four cookies, place four or five cookies in the center of the table, then deal out the other cards evenly to form face-down draw stacks for each player. At the same time, everyone starts playing cookie cards in one of three ways:
- You can place two or more cookies of the same type in a face-up stack in front of you.
- You can play a single cookie from your hand on top of a card in the center of the table, then place that stack before you.
- You can play a single cookie from your hand on top of another player's stack to claim that stack and place it before you.
After any action, refill your hand to four cookies. The round ends when a player has played all of her cards; this player scores three bonus points for ending the round. Everyone else scores one point for each type of cookie they have before them.
The player with the highest score after five rounds wins.
