The Great Dalmuti
  • Life isn't fair...Why should a game be?
  • Players take their places in the pecking order, from Greater Peon to Greater Dalmuti, and try to ditch the cards in their hands.
  • From this simple concept comes an ingenious game by Richard Garfield.
  • What (or Who) is The Great Dalmuti? Easy to learn and quick to play, The Great Dalmuti is a social card game based on the premise that life isn't fair.
  • The faster you get rid of the cards in your hand, the higher your social class will be in the following hand, and having a higher social standing has definite advantages in the game.
  • 80-card commercial deck contains cards ranked from 12 to 1, along with two jokers.
  • Each card bears a number, which is not only its rank, but also tells you how many of that card exists in the deck.
  • A light card game where players gain status by going out first.
  • Seat positions change and the cards are re-dealt.
  • Person who first got rid of all his cards becomes The Great Dalmuti.
