About

FlamingOs is a fun card game for 2–5 players. Players take turns drawing cards, pairing Mingos to earn Shrimp. 10 Shrimp points earn a player 1 'O' card. (Shrimp cards are worth 1 point. Jumbo Shrimp cards are worth 5 points.) The first player to get 3 'O' cards wins. But watch out! There are Sharks, Pelicans, a Crab, Seagulls, and special Shrimp that can hurt or help a player’s advancement to win.

FlamingOs takes 5 minutes to learn and plays about 20–40 minutes.

I’m Caitlin, the designer of FlamingOs card game. I love the beach, games, and flamingos! I am a project manager who always finding ways to be creative. I hope you enjoy playing FlamingOs as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. 

This project would not be possible without my husband and artist of FlamingOs, Brandon Kitajchuk. He sells small batch art prints on Etsy and is the artist for a comic book series called Tabi No Hana, which has found success on Kickstarter.
