Have Gold Fever, 3 Gold cards, and more Gold cards than other players
Have Gold Fever and only Gold cards in hand at end of own turn
note: in the event that there is a tie for most Gold cards, then whoever has the most cards in hand and in play is the winner
When playing any cards you must call out the card type and who you are using it against.
PTU cards Stack. In other words, the second Pickpocket card you play requires you to take 2 cards from a single opponent, the fourth Loan Shark requires you to demand 4 cards, etc.
Backfire: If you demand a specific card or card type, activate a Little Bomb card that is either called by the wrong number or no longer held by the taker, accuse a player of holding Head of the Family when they do not, or are caught miscalling a card. In this event then the number of cards you intended to gain from an opponent are now taken from you by that same opponent. Any other cheating caught allows 3 cards to be taken from you at random and removed from the game.
