Thank you ****** *******. Not sure what word I would have used here otherwise.


Once you get down to one card, you will be at the 1-yard line. You have to signal this by saying “Omaha” (always) before getting rid of your second-to-last card.

Clear line in the sand. Say it BEFORE not AFTER you let go of your card.


The penalty for not signaling is picking up two cards and a loss of a turn. No penalty if the next player finishes their turn before any player notices you didn’t signal. If you stack out of the game, you don’t have to signal Omaha.

Be Creative

Alternatively, you can be creative and use any word, dance, sound, or team mantra to alert players that you have one card left (mention this before the game). Example: “Here we go Brownies,” “Bear Down.”
