Luris - The Card Game

Engaging and fast-paced, easy to learn and hard to master

Rules of Luris

Players: 2-4
Time: about 15 minutes


Throughout the game, each player places several separate sets on the table. Ideally, each set should consist of cards with the same value. However, some cards within these sets are placed face-down, potentially including non-matching cards as bluffs. These face-down cards can be flipped face-up or swapped. If a flipped card doesn't match the rest of the set, the entire set is destroyed.

The objective of the game is to have the most face-up cards on the table when the draw pile runs out.


  1. Use two standard decks of cards with identical backs. Keep only number cards (2-10). Remove aces, jacks, queens, kings, and jokers.
  2. Deal each player 10 cards and 1 joker.
  3. The remaining cards are the draw pile. Flip the top card to start the discard pile.
  4. Starting player: the player who lost last time or pick randomly.

The Turn

  1. Start: Either draw 2 cards (or the last single card) or pick up the top card of the discard pile.
  2. Action: Do only one of the following:
  3. End: At end of turn discard one card (skip if you have no cards in hand).
