BASTA! – Card Game – Also known as Mau Mau Extreme
Mau Mau Extreme takes the basics of Mau Mau – that is, playing cards from your hand to match the top card of the discard pile in order to empty your hand first – and turns up the challenge by introducing a buzzer and speed elements.
The gist of the game remains the same as the original: Players receive a hand of seven cards from a deck of sixty, and one card is place face-up to start a discard pile. On a turn, the active player discards a card that matches either in number or color the card on top of the discard pile. If a player can't legally play, she must draw a card; if she can play this card, she may do so. Playing a +2 card forces the next player to draw two cards before playing as normal, while playing “Aussetzen!” skips the next player's turn.
