Type: Tabletop Card Game
A card game created in Traditional Folk Game Class in CUC (Communication University of China), which is inspired by Chinese traditional opera "face off". Players play in roles, which have corresponding faces. Players have to play cards according to this relationship. Changing Cards can be used to change face.
The player first runs out cards wins.
Everyone draws a Role Card and temporarily keep it secret. Shuffle the Changing Cards and Face Cards, then each player draws 5 cards in turn. The youngest player plays any face card as the initial face if he/she has. (If not, the next clockwise player plays one, etc.)
Play cards in clockwise. Players have to play a face card corresponding to the identity of the face card that the previous player played. If there is no such face card, the player needs to play a changing card to change the identity, then play a face card belongs to this new identity. If the player doesn't has any card can be played, his/her turn is over. This player need to draw a new card from the pile then the next player’s turn starts.
At any time, the player can choose to show his/her identity to others then play a face card subordinate to the identity whatever the last face card is.
(Tips: players can choose the time to clarify themselves or temporarily conceal the identity for confusing the opponents.)
Any player having 2 cards remained must shout out "Qiang Qiang Cei" to remind other players that he/she is going to win. The player who forgot it shall draw a card from the pile as punishment.
The game is over when there is anyone wins. Other players rank according to the number of the cards remained (20 points for 1 changing card, 10 points for 1 face card). The player with the highest points will be punished.
