Quick Take: You probably got this in a pack of Uno games and have decided to give it a try. Good news, it's an enjoyable little game! It's basically Set without the speed component, you have to be "bold" and continue to flip over cards to earn points. The trick is that every card you flip over must have at least one matching feature. There's a memory component to this game as well, which is fantastic if you have smaller children playing against adults because they will legitimately beat you. Kids always win at memory games. (Side note: the link is to the newest version and on the box it says, "perfectly suitable for anyone over age 7, even mom." HUGE EYEROLL. I'm sure someone thought they were being hilarious.)

 

How to Play: Your goal is to get the most points. On each turn you start by flipping over 2 cards. They must have at least one element that matches. The four elements of each card are: bottle type, bottle size, color, and pattern. Keep on drawing cards until you either stop and collect the cards off to the side and another player gets to take a turn, or draw cards until one doesn't have an element that matches another card you've flipped up and then you must turn all your cards back over and you get zero points for your turn. Play continues until you have used up the entire draw pile and you can't complete the full 5 x 4 grid you started with. Whoever has the most points is the winner!

Variations: If you want more forgiving gameplay, you can give each player a certain number of "oopsies" where they can take back a move or two over the course of the game.
