Speed, reasoning and reactions are vital when playing Ligretto.
Everyone plays at the same time, attempting to discard as many cards as possible to the communal piles in ascending order.
Add a second different colour box and up to eight can play, add the third and now twelve players can compete!
What’s in the box?
- 160 cards
How to play:
Players deal 10 cards face down into a stack in front of themselves and then turn the stack over to reveal the numbers.
Players deal another three cards in a row to the right of the Ligretto stack, with the numbers face up. If there are only two players, players deal five cards into the row. With three players, players deal four cards into the row.
Each player keeps the rest of the cards in their hand with the pattern face up.
The gameplay of Ligretto is simultaneous. In other words, there are no player turns. Players play cards to the table as fast as they can and at the same time.
One player shouts, “Ligretto!” to begin the round. Players then begin playing cards from their row or their hand, creating piles in the middle of the table. Each pile must begin with a 1 card and continue in numerical order until the pile has 10 cards of the same colour.
As soon as a player has no more cards left in their Ligretto stack, they shout, “Ligretto stop!” No more cards may be placed on piles at this time, and the round ends. Players score their cards and the first player to reach 99 points is the winner!
