About the Halli Galli card game:
A bell in the middle of the table and a stack of cards for each player - that's all you need to play a game of Halli Galli. The 2 to 4 players take turns turning over the cards in front of them. Varying numbers of bananas, plums, strawberries and limes show on the cards. When exactly five fruits of the same kind can be seen, players race to be the first to ring the bell in order to win all face-up card piles. You'll only win this turbulent game if you manage to hold on to your own cards and win the others of the other players!
If you've really caught the Halli Galli bug, you can now meet like-minded people online in a digital social network, as well: In mid-September, a new Halli Galli page will be launched on Facebook, where all fans old and new can exchange information and will regularly be supplied with all the latest Halli Galli news.
