I can't find the answer to this in the English translation of the rules. What if you don't have a pair to sell, or enough money to buy any of the available cards? Is it a forced pass, a loss, or the end of your opportunity to play any longer (even if a possible buy comes up later) but you're still in for final scoring?

Have you encountered such situation?

I don't think it can really happen unless one player intentionally play it very poorly.

That's what I was thinking. I've only played a few times with my wife, but I can't imagine getting into that situation. If that happened in our game, I would quietly walk away from the table hanging my head in shame.

Gonna have to go with Steve here. The math shows that it can happen. If it did, that person would lose, imho.

I nearly got myself into this situation on my last playing. Since there's no way out of it, once in, I'm inclined to say the player forfeits all future turns, meaning the other player can play on auto-pilot, which most likely will lead to their win.

This sounds reasonable to me. The wild card is designed to allow you to get out of this situation once.

An alternative might be to sell a single card at face value or half value. I think I would only do this when playing with kids since they tend to like to play out the game.
