5 or 6 for 7 x 8


61 cards show two numbers between 0 and 8 in their corners - The numbers in the four corners of a card are identical - and carry a multiplication task in the middle, ranging from 2x3 to 9x9. The cards are dealt evenly to all players, the one remaining card is displayed openly. Every player stacks his cards face-down and draws four of them in hand without looking at them. On a starting signal, you check your cards and all then try to discard cards as fast as they can, based on the multiplication tasks and corner numbers: If you have a card in hand that shows a corner number that is equal to a number that is part of the multiplication task result - for the result of 6x6 you can discard a card showing a 3 or 6 in the corner - you name the result of the multiplication and discard the card. If two players name the result at the same time, the player who was fastest to place his card may leave it on the pile, the other one must take it back. As soon as a card was placed on the pile, the multiplication task of this card is valid for discarding cards. You can draw from your pile at any time. If nobody can discard a card and cannot draw cards, all put down their cards face-down, the bottom-most card of the discard pile is put on top and play continues. If you are down to one card, you put this card face-down on the pile and win.

For a tournament you play four games and score one penalty point for each card left in your hand.

You need quick reactions and even quicker calculations and must also remember cards in hand - rather thrilling and challenging, as the title indicates.
