Description Edit | History

In Utopian Rummy players compete to draft more prosperous Jobs into their Society. Each Job added to a Society gives a special ability to use now and scores points for them at the end of the Age.

Some Jobs add more cards to your hand (Hunters & Farmers), while other Jobs score large amounts of points (Elders & Story Tellers).

The basic turn follows these three phases:

1. Explore (Draw) - View the top 2 cards of the Draw Deck and add 1 to your hand.
2. Expand (Play) - Each Job needs to be Initiated first by playing a set of 3 matching Jobs.
3. Decay (Discard)

Utopian Rummy was designed to play fast, have many interesting decisions, and just be fun to play.
