The Aim of the Game
The aim of ‘Bullion’ is to collect all five (5) of the ‘Bank Note Cards’ (held in the player’s hand, see pic 1.), while at the same time collecting ‘Bullion Cards’ to create a Bullion Stack worth $12,000,000 placed in front of the player and clearly visible to all other players (see pic 2.). Using the ‘Action Cards’ helps achieve this goal quicker…
When all the necessary cards have been collected the hand is over. The player then ends the hand by calling “Bullion”. This is done whether the players are playing in a scoring match or simply playing that the most hands wins i.e. best of 5, 7 etc…
The Deck & Discard Pile
The deck and discard piles are where a player takes a card from to start their turn, remembering that the start of each players turn, in each hand, starts with a player picking up a card. The only cards that can be taken from the DISCARD PILE for a player’s turn are “Bank Note Cards” and “Bullion Cards”. The card selected is the top card only. The top card from the over turned DECK is the correct card to take for your turn…
Cards of Bullion
Important note: each player should make themselves aware of how many of each of the cards there are in a deck of Bullion cards (see contents of pack).
Bank Note Cards
Players collect these cards in their hands. To call “Bullion” and end the hand, a player must collect a complete set of ‘Bank Note Cards’ which consists of ONE of each of the following cards;
- One (1) of the ($5) Five dollar ‘Bank Note Card’
- One (1) of the ($10) Ten dollar ‘Bank Note Card’
- One (1) of the ($20) Twenty dollar ‘Bank Note Card’
- One (1) of the ($50) Fifty dollar ‘Bank Note Card’
- One (1) of the ($100) One hundred dollar ‘Bank Note Card’
Note: ‘Wild Cards’ apply.
Players collect these cards in front of them to build a Bullion Stack worth $12,000,000. The correct Bullion Stack required to call “Bullion” and to end the hand is as follows;
- Three (3) of the $1,000,000 ‘Bullion Card’ (total worth 3 million dollars)
- Two (2) of the $2,000,000 ‘Bullion Card’ (total worth 4 million dollars)
- One (1) of the $5,000,000 ‘Bullion Card’ (total worth 5 million dollars)
Total value of the Bullion Stack is $12,000,000 (12 million dollars)
There are 5 different ‘Action Cards’
Players collect and use these cards to WIN the game. You may use these cards to your advantage to build your Bullion Stack and to collect the required set of ‘Bank Note Cards’.
Players may also use Action cards to stop other players from winning the hand, remembering that to WIN the hand you must end with the 5 correct ‘Bank Note Cards’ (see pic 1.) in your hand and the 6 correct ‘Bullion Cards’ placed in your Bullion Stack in front of you. (see pic 2.).
Note: ALL action cards are played by placing them on top of the discard pile…
A ‘Wild Card’ may be used in place of any ‘Bank Note Card’ in a players hand or any ‘Bullion Card’ in a player’s Bullion Stack, it may be moved around in the Bullion Stack to represent any value ‘Bullion Card’. A ‘Wild Card’ in your hand may be able to be placed down in your Bullion stack at any stage to become a Bullion Card.
A ‘Wild Card’ acting as a Bullion Card in any players Bullion Stack, can NEVER become a Bank Note Card.
This card allows the player to exchange the ‘Swap Card’ for ANY card in the discard pile. A player may only look through the discard pile once they have placed the ‘Swap Card’ down to be actioned i.e. a player must rely on their memory. Once the swap card has been placed down by a player, it must be used, i.e. a player cannot change their mind.
When swapping for any card that the player wishes to put into their hand (i.e. not being actioned immediately) a further card from that player’s hand must be discarded. Each player MUST be left with five (5) cards in their hand after each turn.
Very Important Note: Players start their turn by ALWAYS PICKING UP from either the over turned deck or the discard pile. Remember after a turn a player must always end up with 5 cards in their hand any play contrary to this is ILLEGAL play.
This card steals an opposing player’s ‘Bullion Card’. The stolen ‘Bullion Card’ may be placed in your Bullion Stack to help you collect your bullion stack quicker, however if it is not required by the player stealing it, it gets discarded onto the discard pile to slow that player’s progress down.
Note: includes ‘Wild Cards’ acting as ‘Bullion Cards’.
This card is used to protect ‘Bullion Cards’ in the Bullion Stack. It is placed on top of the ‘Bullion Card’ you wish to protect. The ‘Vault Card’ only protects the ‘Bullion Card’ from a ‘Steal Card’ but does not safeguard the card against a ‘Super Steal Card’.
When stealing a ‘Bullion Card’ with a ‘Vault Card’ placed on top of it, the ‘Vault Card’ on top of that ‘Bullion Card’ ALWAYS remains with that ‘Bullion Card’. This applies whether the ‘Bullion Card’ is kept by the player stealing it or if the player discards it. A ‘Vault Card’ once it has been placed on a ‘Bullion Card’ is non-transferable.
Note: when scoring the ‘Vault Card’ is worth $5,000,000, except for the winner of the hand where the score doubles i.e. its value then becomes $10,000,000 million for each vault card in their stack.
Super Steal Card - Play Again
This card steals an opposing player’s ‘Bullion Card’ even if the ‘Bullion Card’ is PROTECTED by a ‘Vault Card’. The stolen ‘Bullion Card’ may be placed in your Bullion Stack or simply discarded to slow the player down. If stealing a ‘Bullion Card’ that has a ‘Vault Card’ protecting it, then the stolen ‘Vault Card’ must ALWAYS remain on the stolen ‘Bullion Card’.
There is also a Bonus!! The Player “PLAYS AGAIN”
Direction & Rules of Play
Each player is dealt five cards from a deck of well shuffled ‘Bullion’ cards. The rest of the deck is turned face down with the top card then turned face up to start the discard pile. The play then goes clockwise.
Note: the only cards that can be picked up from the discard pile for a player to have a turn are “Bank Note cards” & “Bullion Cards” EXCEPT when the hand is first dealt, the player immediately following the dealer may decide to take the first card discarded (i.e. turned over) no matter what it is.
In turn, each player ALWAYS PICKS UP one card from the face down deck (or a ‘Bank Note or Bullion Card’ from the discard pile). After picking up the player then proceeds to play a card from their hand, or the card they have just picked up. This then ends the players turn. All action cards when played must be placed on top of the discard pile.
Note: after a turn a player must always end up with 5 cards in their hand. Any play contrary to this is ILLEGAL play.
The winner of the hand, is the player who places one of each of the five different denominations of the ‘Bank Note Cards’ collected in their hand (see pic 1)down on the playing table next to their full Bullion Stack, which they have collected(see pic 2). The player calling up (ending the hand) calls “Bullion”.
Note: if all cards have been used from the pack, re-shuffle the discard pile and the player next in turn takes the top card.
Scores are counted by the value of the ‘Bullion Cards’, each player has collected in their Bullion Stack at the end of the hand.
The Winner of the hand is the player to first place their 5 correct ‘Bank Note Cards’ next to their correct Bullion Stack. This player instantly DOUBLES their score, including any ‘Vault Cards’ which they may have placed on their ‘Bullion Cards’.
The winning player will have a Bullion Stack worth $12,000,000 (which doubles to $24,000,000) plus any ‘Vault Cards’ worth $5,000,000 each (which double to $10,000,000 each)
The rest of the players score is simply worked out on the face value of their ‘Bullion Cards’ (so even if they have a full Bullion Stack it is only worth $12,000,000) plus any ‘Vault Cards’ worth face value ($5,000,000)
The player to reach a total of $201,000,000 first is declared the winner of the game and receives the title of BULLION KING…
Of course, the true BULLION EMPEROR is the first player to reach ONE BILLION DOLLARS. This is not for the faint hearted…..
