A game for two players, which uses dominoes. The aim is to negotiate an agreement between South Hanguk and Best Hanguk.
The game’s played in rounds, over issues determined by the first tile laid out each round. The game ends when you run out of tiles.
Play rock-paper-scissors to determine first player.
Fill your hand to 5 tiles.
The first player lays a tile and announces the issue.
The opposite player plays a tile that matches a number on the laid out tiles, and describes a demand (if played on the side facing you) or a concession (if on the opposing side). You can also ‘give’. If you can’t come up with a description or play a tile, you ‘give’.
The other player can now play a tile, and play continues until someone ‘gives’.
Whoever doesn’t ‘give’ scores the points.
Change first player and go to 1.
