In this elegant variation on his earlier 6 Nimmt!, Wolgang Kramer delivers a more strategic game. The deck consists of number cards with values from 1 to 98 having either green bulls heads (positive points) or red bulls heads (negative points) plus 12 special cards ("x2" and "+5"). As in 6 Nimmt!, players are constructing sets of cards. However, players now take their turns sequentially and play one to three cards onto growing sets of cards arranged in a circle. The fifth number card added to a set takes all the cards in the set, including the card just added and any special cards.
