Inspired by the concept that "the rules must be on the cards" I thought I'd take it literally (like any good rules lawyer should!) and make this game.

The idea is that you pick up the cards, start reading and the players change the rules as they go, with the eventual aim of holding the right card at the end of the round.

It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to play, and should work for 2-5 players.





This is quite early on in development so any ideas, comments etc. are very much welcome!

The other question is - does it need a theme?

It's quite interesting concept, however it would be nice to provide some in-game screenshots as for now I don't have clear idea of how are cards layed on the table.

Somehow it reminds me Fluxx with this changeable win conditions.

Excuse the hasty paper prototype but here's an idea of a late-stage board state.



Obviously it's quite a lot clearer in my head than in the rules.

I'll try and get it a bit better set out - my problem is I need to have enough of the rules on the first card to get the game going.

Edit- also can't seem to rotate the image!

Edit 2 - figured it out in the end.
