I'm reading the rules, but I think to get a good idea of the game, I'd need to know what the hot spot cards are (the risk and the points associated). As it is, there are no images of them (the one on the ks page is small, the scores are missing on all but one, and the text is chopped in half on all but one), nor are they detailed in the beta rules. Can someone release them?

Note, if they are in a video, I don't watch videos so I'll never find them that way.

The Hot Spot cards are rules that a player has to follow in that round. One might be "Can Only Lead with Pairs" or "A Run Cannot Contain a Blue Card". The points on the card usually go with how tough that rule is to follow. If you can get first place and follow the rule, you'll be awarded more points than another card with an easier rule.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I know what they are. What I'd like is specific examples of them. In your image, I can make out three of them, which is more information. Thanks.

The Hot Spot cards contain your potential points for the round and a challenge/rule that only applies to you. For example

"May not play pairs" could be your challenge for the round if you selected it. You would not be able to play pairs at all for the round.

Your points are based on where you finish in the round

1st: 12
2nd: 7
3rd: 3
etc

Each of the Hot Spots cards in teh game are different.

Here is a screen cap, i don't have a better image

Since this is closer to production, is it possible to learn what all the hotspot card challenges are? The rules say there will be 16 total, but I think I've only seen maybe 6 of them.

In an attempt to figure the Hot Spot cards out, I've found the following from videos, pictures, etc:

- Start player
- May not play pairs
- Runs must be a single color
- No yellow cards can be played in runs
- Pairs and Triples must include red cards
- Ends must end with even cards
- May not play runs of 3
- Cards in runs must be all different colors
- May only beat played cards by 1
- Runs must end with odd number cards
- Runs must end with even number cards
- May only lead singles
- No red cards may be played in runs
- Must beat played cards by at least 3
- No green cards may be played in pairs or triples
- No blue cards may be played in pairs or triples
