This is another case of Bad Rules. Even with the videos it is unclear. On Aslik if you play a 4 card do you take up to 4 one by one or go straight for a 4 pick-up?

Well sorry if it's not that clear. It's written in the rules :
Do : pick up one by one the jacks on the table

So you have to pick up one by one

Thanks for your reply. I would suggest that the rules should cover how the cards interact with the challenge. On some challenges you are required to take the number on the card in one go, on others you repeat the challenge a number of times according to the card played. The rules don't make it clear which is which. And the tranlslation is not very well written. It doesn't seem like it was translated by someone for whom English is their first language.
Great game though, despite the rules.

Thanks for your message ! Sorry about the rules ; it has been translated by an english friend gamer ! So maybe it's because it's not enough clear in french
As soon as I have a little time, I will add details to help the player to understand what to do.

An English translator? That surprises me. Perhaps he had not played the game and so did a literal translation.

Yes, he didn't play the game so it wasn't easy. But I can assure you that he's english !

All rules translators should be forced to play the games for the rules that they are translating!

Sure but as you may know, the rules are usually written before the game is made. So, if the translators live in a different country, it's hard to make them play.

Just to mention that there's a FAQ now in english, hoping that it answers the different questions you can have.
Have fun !
