The object of the game is to regain
control of the cards you have been
dealt. The first player to express
pain is the one able to escape
payment. Players who refuse
to put their card down consciously, cannot
collect the ecstatic card. Others must “pay out”
the earned number of cards to their
opponents in slow succession, repeating
the phrase, I am one with all around
me. The player who collects all
the cards first, is the winner of us all.
