## Overview

• Papayoo is a trick-taking game with five suits:
• The object of the game is to take as few points as possible.
• Boardgame Arena measures these points as negative. Therefore, the player whose score is closest to 0 will be the winner.

## Components

• 8-sided die.
• 1♠2♠3♠4♠5♠6♠7♠8♠9♠10♠

• 1♣2♣3♣4♣5♣6♣7♣8♣9♣10♣

• 1P2P3P4P5P6P7P8P9P10P11P12P13P14P15P16P17P18P19P20P
• Payoo cards are worth points equal to their number value.
• The Papayoo card is the 7 of one of the other suits and is worth 40 points.

## Game play

1. Deal all of the cards.
• 1♠1♥1♣1♦ are removed for 7-8 players.
2. Depending on the number of players, choose 3-5 cards to pass face-down to the player to your left.
• This must be done before you look at any cards passed to you.
3. Once all players have passed cards, an eight-sided die is rolled.
• Whichever side lands face up determines which 7 card is worth points in that round.
• For example, if ​♠ is rolled, the 7♠ is worth 40 points.
4. The dealer plays first, with any card from their hand.
5. In clockwise rotation, each player plays a card.
• Suit must be followed where possible.
• There is no trump suit; the highest card in the led suit wins the trick.
6. Whoever takes the trick leads the next trick.
• The number of rounds is determined before the game.
• Points are accumulated throughout the game.
• The total number of points in the round should equal to 250.
