Zone (2-4 players)
Zone is a variation in which in addition to the standard discard pile there will be discard zones for each player that add another layer for discarding your hand. Discarding in the discarding zone does not end your turn. Your turn ends when you discard in the discard pile or “pass” do the next player. Discard zones are not mandatory.
To create a zone you must first lay down a set, 4-3 formation or a streak and then you will be able to make an additional discard pile in front of you. The discarding method will be the same as it is on the discard pile. Action cards can be placed in your zone, but can’t serve any function, although change of color cards are prohibited. You can not stack on a discard zone.
You have the ability to discard your cards in your opponents zone with the following.
Short Range attack.
If you place a cover card in your zone you have the ability to attack your next opponents discard zone by discarding on it.
Long Range attack.
If you place a black cover card in your zone you have the ability to attack any player’s discard zone.
You have the ability to disrupt your opponents discard zones.
If you discard a black pistol on the discard pile you can get rid of your next opponents zone.
Double Edge Blitz
If you stack at least two black pistols on the discard pile you can get rid of both opponents to the left and right of your zone.
If you discard a black shotgun on the standard discard pile you can get rid of all your opponents zones.
If you discard a shotgun you can eliminate one card from your opponents sets or streaks of your choice and they must pitch it underneath the discard pile. If they don’t have the requirement they need anymore for that set or streak they must pick it up and add it back to their hand. If you stack shotguns together you can still only eliminate one card.
If you discard a black shotgun you can eliminate up to two cards in total from any amount of players sets or streaks. Meaning you can take two cards from one player or one from one person and one from another. Black shotguns have a (O’O) double barrel symbol in the bottom left corner to signify their higher rank.
