RACKO, a vintage Ravensburger card game from 1976
- Manufacturer: Ravensburger:
- Manufacture date: 1976
An exciting card game for 2 to 4 people
- 60 cards
- 4 cardholders
- Playing time approx. 30 minutes
All players try to arrange the numbered cards in their cardholders in ascending order. They discard cards that do not fit and try to take matching cards from the stockpile in the suit. Not so easy when they are constantly being hijacked by their opponents.
The box contains 60 cards, numbered from 1 to 60. Depending on the number of players, 40 (2 players), 50 (3 players) or all 60 cards (4 players) are played. Each player is dealt a cardholder and a random set of (10) unranked cards. In the course of the game, these cards are constantly exchanged: a player takes the top face-up card or the top face-down card from the pile and places it in his rack. The card he had to remove for this is placed on the face-up pile. Whoever is the first to build up an ascending sequence of ten cards wins a game round. The other players' points then depend on the size of their card suit.
With two players there is an additional obligation: at least three consecutive cards must also be present in the suit. Several rounds are played until someone can collect an agreed number of points.
The booklet also contains a few variants... one example: when filling the tripod, each player can immediately slide each new card into a box of his choice instead of following the imposed filling from back to front.
This game is in good vintage condition with normal traces of use and age-related traces of wear. Photos are part of the description.
