HOW TO PLAY
Choose a player and ask if he/she has a dish in the menu of your “Banquet Card”. (A)
Use a Function Card if holding one. The card then becomes invalid and the game goes back to Step A.
When being asked, a player MUST hand out the card if he/she is holding it. The requester then continues asking another player in the same manner until failing.
A turn ends when a player fails to acquire the card he/she requests. The player then draws a card from the stock pile and passes the turn to the next player. (back to Step A)
Player uses “Chi Card” to intercept the "Banquet Card" obtained by Player A.
