Better for us!
About a Hallimash surprise action we were allowed “SOLO” from AMIGO Games and Leisure Publisher test. SOLO is a card game similar to Mau Mau, but with special ones action Cards. On family game where everyone has fun.
Excellent! We play this kind of card games super happy. This is fun for two, but also in larger rounds. Friends with each other can play as well as the grandmother with the grandson.
The cards are in a practical, stable Lid box and are well kept in it. Play at home, in the restaurant, on vacation, on the go, handy small to take anywhere.
My daughter loves the game, and hardly a day goes by without us playing at least 2-3 rounds of SOLO :-).
This kind of game is an absolute must-have for us and also a nice souvenir or child’s birthday present.
Instructions – How to play:
Each player receives 8 cards. The remaining cards come as a hidden draw pile in the middle of the table.
The top card is placed face up. It is the beginning of the discard pile.
If this is an action card, the starting player must follow the instructions of the card. (This is how it is in the manual.) We usually reveal the next card so that a neutral card is at the beginning.)
How to play:
The game starts at the beginning in a clockwise direction.
It’s your turn to play cards out of the hand:
A matching card put on the discard pile. So a card same color, same number or same action card icon, like the top card of the discard pile. Black action cards always fit. Then it’s the turn of the next player.
Has a player exactly the same card on the hand as the top card on the discard pile, he may immediately throw this on the discard pile. It does not matter if it is his turn or not!
Then the next player is after the “Interlude” (in game direction) turn.
(Not everybody knows this rule and it should be decided or rejected together before the game begins.)
If you can not or do not want to take a suitable card, you must have one Card from the draw pile to take on the hand.
The drawn card can be played immediately.
Action cards can be played if a card of the appropriate suit or an equal action card is on top of the discard pile. Black Action Cards fit on every card.
The next player may not discard a card or draw one. The next but one player in turn order is his turn.
change of direction
Immediately the game direction changes.
The next player must draw two cards from the draw pile or “extend” by placing another “draw 2” card. The next player must then draw 4 cards, etc.
If the next player has drawn two or more cards, he then performs his normal move by discarding or pulling a card.
Mooring possibilities – red 9
Card exchange with a teammate
The player chooses a player and exchanges all his cards with him.
This action card can be placed on each card of the discard pile. The player may choose any color in which the game is played.
Draw 4 + color choice
This action card can be placed on each card of the discard pile.
The player may choose any color to continue playing AND the next player must draw 4 cards. Again, you can “extend” with another such card.
If the next player has drawn four or more cards, he then performs his normal move by discarding or drawing a card.
Card exchange in turn
This action card can be placed on each card of the discard pile.
All players must pass their cards on hand to the next player in the game direction.
The next player may then play any card.
Before dropping the penultimate card, you must clearly say “SOLO!”. This is a warning to others that you only have one card left.
Who forgets to say “SOLO!” Must draw two cards from the draw pile.
The other players now have to sum up the points of the cards they still have on hand. A table for the scores of the action cards can be found on the instructions.
These points are written down as minus points. The game ends after several rounds as soon as a player has exceeded 500 minus points.
It wins the player with the fewest minuses.
(We never write with the kids, we play purely for fun.)
