The Matryoshka, the famous Russian dolls, are the object of a cult among collectors, and this great exchange is the perfect opportunity to leave with the most beautiful collection. Will you be the most skilled negotiator?

In the Matryoshka card game, players will try to set up color or value series in a table, in 4 rounds of 3 phases.

Through these heats, they will first draw, exchange cards with other players (we can not trade cards already present in his table) and, each round, reconstitute a table by taking the previous hand in hand and by constituting a new one. The table will contain more and more Matryoshkas over the sleeves.

At the end of the game, players will score points for each column of at least 2 cards (values) and for lines containing at least two consecutive cards (colors), with a bonus if they manage to line up more of 5 cards.

So you will have to trick, bluff, give false information about your game, and succeed sufficiently to be discreet about your real collection to win!
