No Merci. It's a slightly strange game where you have a deck with 24 distinct integers randomly distributed between 3 and 35 and 11 counters per person.
Counters count +1 at the end of a round, and cards -X. Whenever there is a face-up card and it is your go you have two choices:
- Place a counter on the card and relinquish the turn.
- Take the card and every counter on it and turn a new card.
It's surprisingly hard (and very viscerally game theoretic). ceb won our set-of-rounds, with simont and I joint-second.
Edit: As atreic points out, you only score the lowest card in a continuous run. (So, for example, collecting 34 is a really good idea if you have 33 and 35 already).
