How to Win
To become the master of the Ratuki card game you must be the first player to score 100 points by collecting cards.
How to Win
Perparation: Get a pen and paper (not included) for scorekeeping. Divide the cards into single-color decks and select one color for yourself. Shuffle your chosen deck and place it face down in front of you to create your draw deck. Draw three cards from your draw deck and hold them in your hand. Since there are no turns, stay alert and watch the other players closely – ready, set... Ratuki!

Game Play: The chaos erupts with a shout of "Ratuki!" If you hold a 1 or a Ratuki card, kick off a stack by placing it on the table using only one hand. Immediately draw another card from your deck to replenish your hand to three cards. Remember, once you choose which hand to use, stick to it throughout the game. Expand any stack on the table by adding cards from your hand if you have a card that's either one number higher or lower than the top card of that stack.

Strategize your moves by either increasing the number sequence (going up) to reach 5 and snatch the stack or decreasing it (going down) to build a thicker pile to grab later. Declare "Ratuki" each time you successfully seize a stack and place those cards face up in your scoring pile.

If you're stuck with a card you can't play, stash it face down in your junk pile and replace it with a new card from your draw pile. Continue the frenzy, playing cards, building your hand, and claiming stacks. If someone exhausts their cards, they holler "OUT!" prompting everyone to cease play immediately.

Tally the number of cards in your score pile, assigning one point per card. Calculate your round score by subtracting the total number of cards in your draw and junk piles from your score pile. Shuffle your cards into separate single-color piles and prepare for the next round. The game continues until a player reaches or surpasses 100 points.

In case multiple players exceed 100 points in the same round, the player with the highest score emerges as the victor. If two players attain the exact same score during the same round, the game results in a draw.
