Ninety nine

Ninety nine is played with a standard 52 cards deck, or 2 decks if there are a lot of players. The objective of the game is to do so that the total of the card pile reach exactly 33, 66 or 99 without exceeding these limits.

Game rules

At the beginning of the game, each player starts with 9 tokens (or any other number decided beforehand). These tokens represent « lives » and the player who has lost all of them is out of the game

At the beginning of the round, each player is dealt 3 cards. The pile of played cards is initially empty and thus is worth 0. At your turn, you choose a card, which you put on the top of the discard pile, and then draw immediately a fresh new one on the draw pile, so that you always have exactly 3 cards in your hand. The card you have just played adds up to the discard pile, its new value is announced and the next player goes.

Your objective is therefore to reach exactly 33, 66 or 99, but without ever exceed them, and optionally force other players to go past these limits for you.
