Special Rules

Each player plays Things on other players until each has 3 Things. The first to get rid of all Things in play wins.

The Parser

Phrases marked as Commands in bold on each card are Actions you can take as long as that card is in play. Replace <object> with the name of any Thing in play.

When you take a Command action, check all cards to see if they have a answer to that Command. If they do, execute them.
