Hello, and welcome to “How to Play T RUN – The Ultimate Strategy Card Game” Presented by FunReimagined.com In this video, we will begin by introducing the game. We will show you what comes in the game box, as well as talk about the game objective, card ranking, and game rules. Lastly, we will end the video by highlighting a few cool factors about the game. T Run is a strategy card game. It can be played with 2 to 7 players. If there are more than 7 players, just add another deck. Everyone can play at the same time. The game can be played with an odd or even number of players. Also, it can be played 1 vs. 1, or team vs. team. The play time is generally between 5 and 20 minutes per game. The suggested age requirement for this game is 12 years old and up. The game comes in a poker size rigid box. Inside of the box, there is a rule booklet and 54 uniquely designed cards. To win the game, get rid of all your cards first. At the same time, you must get rid of your cards in the correct order to win the game. In order to get rid of your cards, you must consider card ranking. Here is the card ranking from the lowest to the highest ranking card. Basic Rules Shuffle cards thoroughly before playing. Distribute the deck among players. Although each deck can play up to 7 players, we will use 3 players as an example here. Remember, the objective of the game is to get rid of all your cards first. Once all players have received their cards, they should review their cards individually and sort them to their liking. We recommend organizing the cards by ranking, while grouping together pairs, three of the same number, and four of the same number. Alternatively, you can sort it by singles, followed by pairs, three of a kind, or four of a kind. The game starts with the player who gets the 4 with the green arrow card. That player will play first. The player selects the desired card or cards to play and places them face up on the table to show the group. The player can play a single, a pair, three of the same number, or four of the same of any number. For example, besides the 4 with green arrow card or any other single card, the player can also play a pair of 8s, or three 9s. If the player has four of the same number, the player can play the combination as well. For demonstration purposes, the player will play a 4 to kick off the game. The player who sits next to the first player in a clockwise direction goes next. The second player has the option to either play cards or skip the turn. If the second player chooses to play cards, the player must play the same number of cards that the first player played, but that have a higher ranking. In this example, the first player played a 4, so the second player can play a 5, a 7, a 9 or anything that ranks higher than a 4. However, the second player is not allowed to play a pair, three at the same number, or four of the same number. Since the first player played one card, the second player only needs to play one card for this turn. If the second player does not have a higher-ranking card to play, they must skip the turn. For another example, let’s say that the first player had played a pair of 8s instead of a 4. The second player has to follow with a pair that is higher than 8, if that player chooses to play cards that turn. In this case, the second player can play a pair of roman numeral IIIs, or play a pair of their 3 Js. Alternatively, the second player can choose to skip the turn. Skipping is allowed even if a player has higher ranking cards to play. Experienced players sometimes choose to skip a turn even if the player has higher ranking cards to play, to conserve higher ranking cards and give themselves a key advantage later in the game. Let’s say the second player chooses to skip their turn. The player needs to call out “pass” to the group. Then it’s the third player’s turn. In this case, the third player decides to play cards, and plays 2 queens. The players should continue to follow the same process clockwise to take turns to play. If everyone in the group passes, the player who played the highest-ranking card(s) last is the lead and can play again. At this time the hand resets, and the player can play any card or combination of cards, such as a single, a pair, three of the same number, or four of the same number. As illustrated in the demo, after the second player played a pair of Queens, it was the first player’s turned. The first player played a pair of roman numeral IIIs. The only pair in the deck that ranks higher than a pair of roman numeral IIIs are the 2 T Run cards. Since the second and third players both don’t have a pair of T Runs to play, they must skip their turns. And, now the hand resets. The first player can now play any single or combination of cards. In this example, the player decides to play a 4. One additional point to note is that if a player plays the last card in hand, and then everyone else calls out “pass”, the player who sits next to that player in a clockwise direction plays next. At this point, the hand resets, and the player can play any card or combination of cards, such as a single, a pair, three of the same number, or four of the same number. The game ends when all players except one get rid of their cards. The player who gets rid of the cards in hand first wins the game. The last player who has cards remaining when everyone else has already gotten rid of their cards loses the game. Everyone in between is a draw. This concludes a brief summary of the basic rules of the game. To help you win the game, we have included a few strategies in our rule booklet which you will receive as part of the game. Finally, before we end the video, we would like to highlight a few cool factors about the game. One unique thing about the game is that the more you play, the more fun you will discover about it.
