Karma Mini Round Game Review (SET Enterprises)

Karma Mini Round Game
What It Is

If you're a fan of the game Karma, then you'll like the travel version, Karma Mini Round. Packaged in a circular tin, this card game plays like the original, but you get a quicker game that is easier to take on the go. The goal is to get rid of all of your cards. If you're the last player left with cards, you lose. 

The game comes with 40 cards, and the cards range in number from 1 to 16, plus there are four types of Karma cards.

To get started, each player has three cards face-down in front of him, three cards face-up on top of the face-down cards, and three cards in his hand. There will also be a draw pile and a discard pile. To play, players take turns discarding a card from their hands. The card must be equal to or a higher number than the previously played card. You can play up to two of the same card, and when this happens, the discard pile gets cleared away.

Only when all the cards from the draw pile are gone can you play the cards on the table in front of you. If you've played all the cards in your hand, you can play the face-up cards, but you can't play the face-down cards until all the face-up cards are gone.

Karma cards can be played on any card and allow you to play a table card early, force the next player to play a certain card, move the bottom card in the discard pile to the top, and make another player take the whole discard pile. 

If you can't match or beat the previously played card and you have no Karma card to play, you have to add the entire discard pile to your hand. 

Is It Fun?
This is a fun and faster-paced version of the original game that will appeal to fans of that game as well as anybody looking for a fun game to play at home or on the go. Once you sit down and start playing, it all starts to make sense, and we recommend keeping the instructions handy the first time you play. Once you get the hang of it, it's a fun game for the whole family to play.

Karma Mini Round is for two to four players ages 8 and up.
