The goal of the game is to amass the tallest stack of coins when they all run out.
All players pick 1 coin simultaneously. The player with the highest value coin wins the round, and collects their friends’ coins. If two or more players have the same denomination coins, they take another coin, until one wins the turn and takes all the coins from that turn. There are also special coins, like the King, the Queen, the Jack, the Joker, and Bankruptcy that cause other crazy outcomes.
When all coins in the center are gone, or when there are fewer coins than the number of players, compare players piles. The player with the highest pile wins the game! It is recommended to play 5 games in a row, and the winner in most games is The Champion.

It’s easy to take with you on the road, or just bring out as a palette-cleanser between more involved games.
