    It’s been a long week and you’re feeling rowdy. Roll up your sleeves – it’s time to start a rumpus!

    Rumpus is a pocket-sized betting card game that is incredibly easy to learn and play. Aggress other players to show what a desirable gentleman you really are – but don’t pick a fight you can’t win! Oh, and please don’t start an actual fight. You are better than that.

    In Rumpus, each player draws three cards, then chooses one card to place face-up in front of them so it is visible to the other players. Each card will consist of one of three symbols - Bicycle, Mustache, and Top Hat. At the beginning of each turn, the player with the Your Turn card must choose an opponent to fight. The players not involved in the fight may place a bet on who they think will win; be careful though, your bet cards will be lost if your fighter loses the fight.

    The fighting players will select cards from their hand of a single symbol to play. Once both players are ready, they will reveal their selected cards to see who wins the fight. The player with the most of symbols of their suit wins the fight; in the case of a tie, there is a listing of which symbols are most effective against another symbol in the instructions (think Rock-Paper-Scissors). The winner will take a Victory Card and must read the description on the card out loud (e.q. "Good Show!"); the other players who bet on the winner will take their bet cards back and draw an additional card from the deck that can be used for future fights.

    Once all of the Victory Cards have been drawn, the game is over, and the player with the most Victory Cards is the winner.
