It's bucket-cleaning day on the farm and the children and animals are making a game of it. The children build pyramids with clean buckets and the animals rush from pyramid to pyramid, trying to knock the buckets down. In the end, the player who has the strongest pyramid and bset uses the animals to knock down other's buckets will win the game and be crowned bucket king!
Each player gets 15 buckets and a set of cards. The player looks at his cards and, based on his cards, builds a pyramid with his 15 buckets.
Players play cards in clockwise order: the starting player picks a color and plays 1-3 cards in that color. The other players, in turn, must either beat the total on the cards played before them or lose a bucket of that color from their pyramid. And even worse: when a player loses a bucket that supports other buckets in the pyramid, he loses the buckets supported by the lost bucket. So, plan your pyramid, setup your buckets, play your cards carefully and let the buckets fall where they may!
