This is a game about the soul crushing experience of house hunting in a big city. If you have done it in real life, I salute you, fellow survivor; if not, count your blessings. You need: A deck of cards (Jokers removed) Paper and pencils 4 Players You are a couple or group of friends house hunting. Your requirements: number of rooms, location, etc. Your budget: 29. Each player writes features for each card in a suit (aces -> 10). Low = bad, high = good. Suits: Hearts: House features (garden, tiny kitchen) Diamonds: location (transports, sketchy) Clubs: agency/landlord (expenses, helpfulness) Spades: Bad. Just bad. (mould, mice, corpse in the cellar) Each turn, deal 4 to each player. 4 cards = a house. Read the features to describe it. House cost = total card values. If you draw a face card, put it aside and draw again. Play faces for special effects: Queen: discard a card, draw again. King: Replace a card with any value Knight: Switch 2 cards' positions Turn end: Decide which houses to keep. You cannot have more than 4. Build a house of cards with the discards. When it falls, or you finish the deck, time's up: choose now.
