the maniacal matching card game
Loonacy is a rapid fire game where players race to be the first to empty their hand by matching one of two images with the images on the open piles in front of them. It’s easy enough to teach in a single sentence, and so addictive you can’t play just one game. Speed of the hand and luck of the draw determine the winner in this frenzied free-for-all!
Players start with a hand of seven cards, and, without any turns, they start to play their cards onto the open piles on the table. The more players, the fewer the piles, so competition can be fierce! If the rush of card playing comes to a halt because nobody can play, everyone draws a card to their hand, so you will likely find yourself on the brink of victory, only to be saddled with extra cards. The first player to empty their hand is the winner!
