What's the purpose of the following rule:

"If a player choose not to take a card, his opponent must take a card on his next turn".

Taking a card ends your opponent's turn so is there a specific situation where this makes sense? What if your opponent already has 5 cards in hand when it is his turn?

So that you can't both just pass back and forth without taking a card, I suppose. It ensures that the game progresses.

If you're asking why a player might choose not to take a card, check the rules about how a round ends and about who starts the next round.

If you're not forced to draw a card at the end of your turn, the player who didn't started could organize, that he has the last move before every scoring at the end of each round. Just counting the cards in both player's hand and play pair respectively odd number of cards.

So it may make sense to draw not a card, but the game would be blocked, if both players don't want to draw a card.


If your opponent didn't drew a card and you've already five cards you're forced to play or discard one card.


Note: It depends on situation, if it's better to play the last card before scoring (getting safe points) or to take the first cards from new face open cards (getting better hand). At the end of the third round it's nearly always best to play the last card.

One time I had the situation, that it made sense to draw no card in two following turns: First time to keep the opponent from not drawing a card, second time to go back to previous situation (odd/pair numbers of cards left). It was during playing Kahuna online, with open information about played cards. In analog games it happens extremly rare that a player doesn't draw a card.
