Goal of the game
The goal of the game is to collect as many quartets (a quartet is a set of four cards) as possible.
Each card indicates to what set it belongs.
Shuffle the cards and divide them among the players (2-6 players is ideal). Choose one of the players to start.
When it’s your turn, ask one of the other players for a card you need. Remember: You can only ask for a card from a set of which you have a card in your hand already.
If the other player has the card you asked for, they have to hand it over, and you keep your turn. If they don’t,
you lose your turn and they get to ask for a card instead.
It is important to pay close attention to who has what cards during the game. It will help you ask the right questions and complete your quartets.
Once you have a completed a set of four, you call out ‘quartet’ and put the set aside. The person with the most quartets at the end of the game (when all the cards have been divided) is the winner.
Please note: A two-player game is played with a stack. In this case, each of the players gets seven of cards at the start of the game, while the rest is put on a stack. Whenever a player asks for a card which isn’t held by the other player, they get to take a card from the stack. The turn then goes to the other player.
