Ratuki (ra-too-kee) is not your traditional everyone plays at the same time card game. Each player gets their own color deck of 35 cards, which contain different numbers and symbols for 1 to 5 and two wild Ratuki cards. All players race to get rid of their cards by forming sequences on shared stacks in the center of the table, and at the same time race to collect cards from those stacks. Cards can be played on stacks in ascending and descending order from 1 to 5. Playing a 5 or a wild card allows players to collect a stack. A new stack can be started by anyone, by playing any version of a 1 card.
The number of center stacks allowed equals the number of players. If players are unable to play, players discard and draw from their own draw and discard piles, always keeping 3 cards in their hand. Quickest player to get rid of their cards stops play for all, leaving other players left with cards. Each player counts the number of cards collected and subtracts the total number of cards left in their hand, draw and discard piles. Cards left in the center of the table are out of play. First player to 100 wins.
- 5 decks of cards (175 cards total)
