GUO NIAN – new year card game –

Welcome.  The Chinese new year 2016 is the Fire Monkey year. There are soo many traditions related to this festival – red clothes and firecrackers among many. There is an old story about a Monster called Nian that came every new year and killed villagers. One village discovered that the monster was afraid of the color red and loud noises. To celebrate this I made a card game for 2-8 players you may print and play with you friends or family. 





Here are the game files to print and play for free. You will need 3 dice and some player tokens:.


Here are the rules to edit:

I am hoping for someone to translate my rules to Chinese.. please 😀
