Halli Galli is a fast-paced card game designed by Haim Shafir and published by Amigo Spiele. The game is intended for 2-6 players and is suitable for ages 6 and up. The game consists of a deck of cards featuring various fruit illustrations, with each card showing between 1 and 5 fruits. To play the game, the deck is divided equally among the players, and each player places their cards face down in front of them.

On each turn, players reveal the top card from their pile. If a player spots a specific fruit (e.g., five bananas) that is currently displayed a certain number of times across all the revealed cards, they must quickly ring the bell in the center of the table. The first player to ring the bell takes all the revealed cards and adds them to the bottom of their own pile. The game continues in this manner until one player has collected all the cards, and is declared the winner.

Halli Galli is a fun and fast-paced game that requires quick reflexes and good observation skills. It is often played in a party setting and can be enjoyed by both children and adults.

How to Win
The player who is holding the largest number of cards at the end of the round is the winner.
How to Win
Perparation: Shuffle the deck of cards and deal them equally among the players, face down. Each player takes their cards and places them in a pile in front of them without looking at them.

Game Play: The first player turns over the top card from their pile and places it face up in the center of the table. Each player in turn does the same, adding their card to the pile in the center of the table.

As soon as there are exactly 5 of one type of fruit on the table (e.g. five lemons), the first player to slap the bell in the center of the table gets to take all the cards in the pile and add them to the bottom of their own pile. The game continues in the same way until one player has all the cards and is declared the winner.

If someone slaps the bell when there are not exactly 5 of one type of fruit on the table, they have to give one of their cards to each of the other players. If a player runs out of cards, they are out of the game. If two or more players slap the bell at the same time, the player with the highest number of cards in their own pile gets to take the center pile.

Human Question:
Which game starts with the same letter as Mancala: Chess, Uno, Monopoly, Battleship or Rummycube

Jo says:

If you've showed a new card that added up to the strawberries and made it 8 (any number in excess of 5) in total then you lose if you rang the bell. Regardless if unconsciously (that makes it fun) because you are used to turning up cards (and has to be quick) making it counting difficult :)
