Elements, is a bluffing and deduction game for two players that contains
only sixteen cards, with each player trying to figure out the best time
to end the round so that they can win. The goal each round is to have a
hand of cards with a higher sum than the opponent, but equal to or less
than the sum played to the table.
To set up a round, deal six cards face down to each player, then remove
the remaining four cards, unseen, from the game. On your turn, you take
one of these five actions:
1: PLAY a card from your hand to the table, overlapping any cards
previously played and announcing the sum of all revealed cards.
2: DRAW the most recently played card from the table and place it in
front of you; this card counts as being in your hand, thereby increasing
the sum of your hand and lowering the sum on the table, but you cannot
discard or play this card.
3: DISCARD a 6 card from your hand, placing it to the side out of play
for this round.
4: KNOCK to end the round and see who wins; you may do this only if the
sum of cards in your hand is equal to or less than the sum on the table.
The players then compare sums, and whoever has the highest sum (without
going over the sum of cards on the table) wins 2 points; if the players
are tied, the player who knocked loses.
5: FOLD to end the round because you think that you will lose; the
opponent wins 1 point.
Shuffle all the cards, and redeal; the player who scored in the round
starts the next round, and the first player to collect 6 points wins.
Alternatively, players can play only a single round to determine the
winner, ignoring the FOLD action since that's a sure loser...
