The Play

All players start the game with five cards dealt to the left of the dealer. To simulate the college/university selection process all players must pass one card to the player on their right. Once each player has passed and received their cards, the remaining cards are placed face down and the play begins with the person to the left of the dealer.

Discard Pile

The discard pile is to be set next to the draw pile, face down. All cards sent out of play are to be placed in the discard pile unless otherwise noted. All instant effects and interrupts are to be sent to the discard pile after they are used. Once the draw pile has been completely used up, shuffle the discard pile and play as the new draw pile. Continue this until one player has reached victory conditions.

Tapped Cards

When an untapable card is tapped due to a negative effect or object it is out of play for the duration of the effect or object card's game text.

Instants

Instants are played just like any other effect, but they can be played at anytime. This includes durring other players turns. For example:

Johnny plays a student, but Susan has an interrupt that allows her to send any student directly to the discard pile. It is also Johnny's, however that does not matter so Susan can play her card.

When playing an interrupt the game text for the interrupted card or action is rendered unusable unless the card is a victory card. The other exception is that if the game text permits the player to take the card back into their hand as opposed to placing it in the discard pile. In this case the player would take the card back into their hand.

Effects


Ailments

When an ailment is played all effect within the game text stand as stated unless another card played over rules them.

Student Leader

When student leader status is played, the card affected is treated normally unless otherwise specified in target effect, gametext, or instant.

Judicial Sanction

Target student must roll 1d6. If value of die is three or greater student is tapped for 2 rounds.

Academic Probation

Target student is tapped for two rounds. May be canceled by specific effects.

Counters


Any object requiring a roll to determine the length of an effect should have the same number of counters placed on it. A counter should be removed after each round. When all counters are removed from a card the card's effect ends, even if th card remains in play per its game text.
