Team games

Team games can be grouped by (two) two-player teams, (two) three-player teams, or (three) two-player teams. The illustration of team positioning is on the intro card in your bench box. Team games add suspense and often improve your probability of winning. 

Team rule changes

In a team game, the entire team must exit the game first to win. When a player exits, his formation or streak stays in play for hitting only (not stealing). You can steal from active teammates. If an exiting player plays an action card on the discard pile, they can complete the act.

Keeping Score
ROUNDS

As an option you can keep score in an individual or team game. Scored games will last four quarters (each quarter is one game). Tally up all points through four quarters, and the person or team with the most points wins. Scorecards are in your bench box.

Scorekeeper

Designate someone as the scorekeeper that will update the scoreboard at the end of each round.

scoring for team games

Teams that fail to down anything will receive 0 points.

Disguised Sets

Disguised sets that stay hidden are assumed to have no wildcats so points won’t go against them.
Fumbled disguised sets that have wildcats do count as wild cats and points can go against you.

Overtime

If a tie occurs, those teams will go into overtime for one more round.

SKUNK

If a player or team wins the first three quarters consecutively, they automatically win the game.
