GREED, PRIDE, WRATH... just three of the 7 Deadlies you will encounter in this devious little card game, themed on the 7 Deadly Sins. Do your best to rid yourself of them all, as soon as you can - while your opponents do their damnedest to fill your hand with more. Empty your hand three times to WIN - and become the ENVY of all your friends!
Object: Play as many cards as you can each turn, of the same Suit, Number value or a Straight of any length, trying to empty your hand as quickly as possible, while at the same time preventing your opponents from doing the same. The top most card of the set you play activates that suit's ability, either helping you further or sandbagging your opponents.
Each time you successfully empty your hand (and manage to keep it empty until the end of the turn), your new starting hand will be two cards smaller than the previous time, as tracked by your Wickedness token. (6, 4, 2, 0) Empty your hand three times, and you WIN!
A nasty little card game for a hell of a good time.
