So have bought this game a few weeks ago and played it with about 5/6 groups - many times. MANY TIMES. Incredible how easy this is to teach and adapt to any situation. Anyway, I found that the 4 cards and you lose to not have much effect in our 6 player games (sometimes 5), with players generally bringing it down to last card loses clause. Tactics can throw this, anyway - if you are curious. I found the following works:

Same Rules apply but three lose clauses

You Lose If:
- You have four-of-a-kind
- You run out of cards
- You collect at least one of all 8 creatures

Why?
Seemed to add an extra edge and stop the often situation of, we all go after the one who is losing. Because, hang on, suddenly this other guy is on 7 cards and only needs a cockroach to hit 8 and out.

We loved it. Interested to hear anyones thoughts!

We did a similar thing except you lost with three of a kind, and WON if you get one of each!
