Description Edit | History

A light card game where players gain status by going out first.

The 80-card commercial deck contains cards ranked from 12 to 1, along with two Jesters. Each card bears a number, which is not only its rank, but also tells you how many of that card exist in the deck. In other words, there are twelve 12s, eleven 11s, four 4s and a single card ranked 1. The lower the number, the better the rank.

The deck is dealt out to all players and the object is to get rid of your cards as fast as possible. The hand begins with one person playing one or more card to the center of the table. The cards played must all be of the same rank (although Jesters are wild, and may be played with any other cards). Each player in turn must now either play the same number of cards of a better rank, or pass. Play continues around the table until everyone has passed; at that point, the cards are cleared and whoever played the last set of cards leads the next round. After everyone has gone out, the players are ranked. For example, the person who first got rid of all his cards becomes The Great Dalmuti. Players change seat position to represent the new hierarchy and begin another round. The Great Dalmuti is generally played for many rounds.

3 Great Dalmuti Place Cards
These are place cards when someone goes out in the game The Great Dalmuti, before the round begins have the lesser dalmuti organize the cards 1 on top and going down. Why the lesser dalmuti? because a peon can not be trusted with the importance of social ranking. 8 are included, all have a hat (save for the lesser peon, he cant afford a hat, or they can draw it in crayon and dream about a hat). Print these out and mount them to colored paper for the backing, and cut out on the black line they will fit inside the box nicely. When playing with fewer take out the highest number merchant cards per player missing. enjoy!
