2. The game
In this international café, colorful ladies and gentlemen from 12 nations enjoy the company of each other at the various tables and the bar.
Each player starts the game with 5 tiles, each representing one guest. Players then place guests at the the tables to score points.
3. The turn sequence
On their turn, a player may choose one of the following 3 actions:
a) Place one or two guests at tables
b) Place one guest at the bar
c) Replace a joker with a guest and bring the joker into their hand
After the player performs one of these actions, they refill their hand to 5 guests.
Except when a player fills a "single nationality" table. They then draw one fewer tile.
This is a permanent reduction in their hand size.
a) Placing guests:
Guests can only be placed at tables according to the following rules:
b) Seating guests at the bar :
In their turn, instead of placing a guests at tables, a player can place one guest at the bar.
There are 20 seats at the bar, each guest is placed at the first open seat, scoring (some plus, some minus) the listed amount of points.
Jokers may not be seated at the bar unless the player has no other legal move.
If by placing a guest at the Bar, your point total goes negative, you are out of the game.
The remaining players continue playing. If only one player remaining has 0 or more points then the games ends and that player is the winner.
c) Replacing a Joker :
A player may replace a joker, that is seated at a table, with the appropriate nationality guest and take the joker into their hand.
This scores no points. At the end of the game, unplayed jokers score minus 10 points each.
One guest at a table scores no points. With 2 or more guests at a table points are earned as follows:
At the end of the game players lose 5 points for each guest in their hand and 10 points for each joker left in their hand.
