Karma-box-deck-k-cards-3-15-14 (1)KARMA

The goal of this card game is pretty simple – to get rid of all your cards first. Each turn, play a card of equal or higher value. If you can't, you just might end up picking up the entire discard pile! Yikes! KARMA cards (which play like wild cards) can get you out of a jam, but What Goes Around…Comes Around so be careful! The last player with cards loses the game.
