Take a card or say “No Thanks.” It’s easy to say no if you have a chip to add to the prize pool. Be aware that your chips won’t last forever and when you take a card it can score against you if it isn’t a part of a run. A quick, fun, fast-paced game of extortion for all ages.
No Thanks! is a card game designed to be as simple as it is engaging.
The rules are simple. Each turn, players have two options:
However, the choices aren't so easy as players compete to have the lowest score at the end of the game. The deck of cards is numbered from 3 to 35, with each card counting for a number of points equal to its face value. Runs of two or more cards only count as the lowest value in the run - but nine cards are removed from the deck before starting, so be careful looking for connectors. Each chip is worth -1 point, but they can be even more valuable by allowing you to avoid drawing that unwanted card.
