In Mythical Menagerie, collect matching card sets to score points, where each card may score for its colour and creature type, and each creature has a special power it may perform.
On This Page
Your primary objective is scoring points by collecting sets of creatures. A set is 3, 4, or 5 cards of matching colour (e.g. White) or creature type (e.g. Rabbit). Each card may contribute to both a colour set and a creature set (e.g. White Rabbit scores for both the White and the Rabbit sets). See how this works:
You have a hand of cards and you play cards to the table to form sets. Your sets score at the end of the game.
On your turn, you draw 2 cards from any piles, play 1 card, then discard 1 card to your personal discard pile:
When you play a card to a set, you may optionally use the creature's special power. This is described further in Creature Powers below.
End Game & Scoring
The first time the deck runs out, shuffle all discards into a new deck, and then play until the deck runs out again. You then finish the round and everyone counts up their scores!
|3 card set||1 point|
|4 card set||2 points|
|5 card set||3 points|
Here is an example of a group of cards that takes advantage of each card's colour and type. This player scores 6 sets (Blue, Red, Purple, Rabbit, Qilin, Dragon), earning 6 points (3-card-sets are worth 1 point each).
How to Play Video
The Tortoise has an additional special power: you may play it out of turn if you have it in your hand when someone plays a matching Fox!
