Kawaii Card gameHelvetiq Kawaii Card Game

Kawaii

£9.99

Be the fastest to collect as many ice creams of your favourite flavour as you can, or you might see your score melt like ice in the sun!

To succeed you need to constantly observe other players’ actions, use your memory and act fast, with no hesitation.

What’s in the box?

  • 55 ice cream cards
  • Five “favourite flavour” cards
  • Five “favourite shape” cards
  • 10 heart-shape capture tokens

How to play:

Each player quickly turns a card over from their reserve and places it in front of them. The cards must be placed in front of each player in a pile, slightly offset from one another, so that the flavour and shape of the ice creams on each card remain visible.

When a player spots one or several piles they find interesting, they can capture it. They
should quickly put their token on the corresponding pile and say “Kawaii”. The player takes all the cards from that pile and puts them aside in a score pile. The player then gives their capture token to the player whose pile they just captured. The given token can be now used by another player (immediately or later in the game).

Once all the cards have been played and captured, each player counts their score with the cards they captured. The player with the least points starts the next round.

After three rounds, the player with the highest score wins the game!

In a descending row of cards, it’s exactly the opposite: each card laid must always be smaller than the card before.

Specific numbers are not allowed to be mentioned but any other communication is allowed.

When the game is over, count how many cards were not laid in total; that means, the cards left in all the players’ hands plus any remaining cards in the draw pile, if any. Less than 10 cards is an excellent result. If all 98 cards were played, you beat the game!
