About

Everyone is dealt a bit of bad luck at one time or another.  Fortunately, Escaping Fate is a way for you to rid yourself of the bad omens that surround you.  However, you can only achieve good fortune by being faster than your opponents. 

This is a 2-3 player fast paced matching game where players race to empty their hands and escape their fate.  Players place cards on rule card piles simultaneously. Deck comes with seven hand drawn images in seven different colors and three rule cards.

Rule Card Three:

  • Cards with the same number, one higher or one lower can be placed under this pile

Game play Rules:

  • Split the deck evenly face down between players (set aside extra cards)
  • When players are ready begin, place cards on rule piles simultaneously
  • Without taking turns, players race to play cards from their pile according to the rule cards
  • If a player cannot lay a card: Wait for other players and watch for your opportunity OR Give the card that cannot be played to another player which will count towards their points (keep card separate from deck)
  • If no one can lay a card, all players place their current card on one of the rule piles
  • If a player places a card on the wrong pile it can be taken by any player (except the player that laid the card) for points
  • When a player empties their hand, the round is over and points are tallied


Score:

  • There are three total rounds
  • Player with the highest score after three rounds has escaped their fate
  • Round win = 1 point for every card left in the opponent's hand
  • In the event of a tie, both players receive the point value of the remaining player's hand
  • Point Cards (Cards given to player) = Number on card is point value
