Ligretto is a card game for two to twelve players. The aim of the game is to get rid of all your cards faster than all the other players by discarding them in the middle of the table. Instead of taking turns, all players play simultaneously. An earlier form of the game was published at the start of the s. Since the year the game has been published by Schmidt-Spiele of Berlin , Germany. In , Playroom Entertainment began publishing the game for North America and other English-speaking countries.
The game is similar to Dutch Blitz , which is based upon the original s Ligretto. The game uses a special deck of cards: each face is red, green, yellow, or blue, and is numbered from 1 to Each player gets 40 cards ten of each color which have a distinctive design on the reverse unique to that player.
Before starting a game, the players shuffle their cards, and put ten cards into a "stack" face up on the table. Three cards are laid out face up next to this stack; these are called the "row". The remaining cards are kept in the player's hand. The game starts when a player shouts "Ligretto! New piles can be started anytime a '1' card becomes available to a player. Play is fast, and slow players will miss opportunities to place cards as faster players add to piles before others can react.
Near-ties commonly occur among players discarding the same number card on a pile, but the person who was first is clearly the one whose card is underneath. When one of the three "row" cards is played, the space gets filled up with the top card from the "stack". If players are unable to discard a card from the three "row" cards or from their "stack", they can look at every third card from the cards in their hand and play a card from the top of that pile if it goes on a pile on the table.
Once a player's hand has been completely passed through in this manner, it is turned over and taken back into their hand so that they can begin dealing three cards at a time. When all players aren't capable of playing any more cards, all players shuffle their hand.
A player shouts "Ligretto! Play continues at a fast pace, with experienced players usually watching other players' rows and stacks as well as their own. At the end of each round, all the cards on the table are turned over, returned to players and counted, using the distinctive marking on the reverse side unique to each player.
The players get double penalty-points for each of the cards remaining on their "stacks" and single bonus points for each card discarded in the middle during play. The player who ended the round does not necessarily achieve the highest score. It is also possible to score a negative value in a round. After the score has been calculated, each player shuffles their 40 cards, and a new round can begin.
Ligretto comes in red, green, and blue packs. Each pack, containing cards for four players, has a different set of markings on the card backs. Buying all three packs allows up to 12 players to play at a time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article has multiple issues.
