Players are dealt four cards, which are kept face- down, except for a quick peek at two of them. Each player in turn pulls a card from the draw pile to replace one of the four. Memory is important, as the object is to end with the lowest score, and players must keep track of the values on their four cards.
“Peek,” “Swap,” and “Draw Two” Power cards turn up occasionally, allowing players to maneuver and strategise further. Delightfully witty pictures of cats (the good guys–low points) and rats (bad guys–high points) illustrate each of the 54 cards.
Young card sharks will develop a sense of timing and greater ease with numbers, and can begin to grasp the concept of probability.
