Description Edit | History

No Thanks! is a card game designed to be as simple as it is engaging.

The rules are simple. Each turn, players have two options:

  • play one of their chips to avoid picking up the current face-up card
  • pick up the face-up card (along with any chips that have already been played on that card) and turn over the next card

However, the choices aren't so easy as players compete to have the lowest score at the end of the game. The deck of cards is numbered from 3 to 35, with each card counting for a number of points equal to its face value. Runs of two or more cards only count as the lowest value in the run - but nine cards are removed from the deck before starting, so be careful looking for connectors. Each chip is worth -1 point, but they can be even more valuable by allowing you to avoid drawing that unwanted card.

The first versions of the game supported up to five players, but a 2011 edition supports up to seven.

This game was originally published in Germany by Amigo as Geschenkt ...ist noch zu teuer!, meaning Even given as a gift, it is still too expensive!. Amigo's international edition, titled No Merci! (a delightful multi-lingual pun), had rules in several languages, including English. The game has subsequently been released in other countries under an assortment of names.

7 One-page portable number chips
Highly portable number chips than can be used to play No Thanks. Prints on one page, DIN A4 or letter alike, set scale to 100%. Back included. Includes two chips labelled X which can be used as Jokers to complete broken rows but always, even inside of rows, count as 10 minus points. Basically language neutral, although you may use it to learn the german words for the numbers from 3 to 35.
