What is GG?

GG is a fast-paced card battle game that pits player against player in an epic 15 minute battle of strategy, memory and deception. Every game is different, you’ll want to play over and over again and with each game, you’ll discover new moves and strategies. Besides, there is no limit to the number of players. You can enjoy outsmarting your opponents whether you have one, two, ten or more!

  • Expandable to large team or free-for-all games. 2 Players/set.
  • Suitable for ages 7+
  • Relies on memory in addition to strategy and deception.
  • Infinite replay value.
  • No luck involved!

The GG Set For 2 involves two sets of a 32-deck of cards and an additional deck of 27 (24 + 3) strategy cards making a total of 91 cards. Every additional set adds 2 more players to the game and contains the same cards as shown below.

Goal: The goal is to eliminate the rivals by attaining their GG cards.

Setup: Before starting a game, each player reviews his/her cards and forms 4 separate piles of 8 cards strategically. Each player gets 2 random strategy cards before starting a game. Players play rock-paper-scissors to choose the player who goes first.

Gameplay:

The first player flips one card from the top of any of his 4 piles and flips another card from the top of any of his/her rival’s 4 piles. This is called challenging. If the challenger wins, s/he continues to play after the losing card is discarded. If s/he loses, the losing card is discarded and the next player in clockwise direction takes the turn. When identical cards are faced up, both cards are discarded and the next player takes the turn.

Instead of challenging an opponent, strategy cards can be played. In that case, it is the next player’s turn unless it is stated otherwise on the strategy card.

When a player eliminates the last card of a pile of his/her opponent, s/he draws a strategy card from the strategy cards deck.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise by showing all of the Bottoms Up cards to you, but we can present some of them here. Cheers!

Bottoms Up expansion deck is a kickstarter exclusive which consists of 12 drinking cards. Since GG requires good strategical thinking and a powerful memory, we thought having a few drinks meanwhile would make the game harder. After a few games, we decided to increase the dosage of the drinks and we came up with the ultimate deck of drinks in “Bottoms up” cards.

If you are into playing strategy games and enjoying your drink at the same time, then this expansion is what you should be getting.

All players randomly draw 2 Bottoms Up cards and put them down face up before starting a game. If not stated otherwise, these cards stay with a certain player until the end of the game and make the player drink his/her beverage under certain conditions.
