    Rat Race is a fast-paced card game about big business. Payers hire Clients and Employees, win Contracts, and use their Big Bucks to buy Perks for their office.

    On each turn, you collect income from your Clients, plus your base income of one buck each turn. You may attempt to play one Contract each turn for additional income. Next, play as many cards from your hand as you can afford. You can hire more Clients who boost your future income, hire Employees who increase your Status and protect you from certain Events, and you can play Events to trash or steal your opponents' best stuff.

    You also buy Perks for your office, which is what gives you the most game-winning Status points. Upgrade your metal desk to a Mahogony Desk. Enjoy the view from your 40th story window. Spruce up the place with a Private Washroom, Masseuse, or an Objet D'Art. If you complete a 3x3 office, you also get a 3-point bonus.

    Once the draw deck is empty, each player adds up his or her Status Points. The player with the highest Status total wins.
