How to Win


Try to be the first player to get rid of their cards. At the end of game, the player who has the lowest points overall wins!


Setup


Shuffle all the cards well and deal 8 to each player. Leave the remaining cards face down in the centre of the table to form a Draw Pile. The first player pick one card to play from their hand next to the Draw Pile as Discard Pile.


How to Play


Start the game in a clockwise direction. Each player must play a card on top of the Discard Pile that matches the previous card (either a station card in a matching colour tube line or a Special Card). Make announcement of the station name as it is played.


If you are unable to play any card, you should pick up one card from the Draw Pile. And you won't be able to play this card straight away.


Special Cards include actions such as reverse the playing direction, reshuffle the cards on hand, skip a player, pass a card on to the next player, and more.


End of Round


The first player to get rid of all their cards is the winner of each round. However, you must call out 'Mind the Gap' when you are down to your last card. If you have noticed by any other players before the next card is played, you must pick up one card from the Draw Pile as a small punishment.


End of Game


The points value can be found in the grey circle at the bottom left corner of each card. Sum up the total points of any cards left in the losing player's hands in each round, and at the end the player who has the lowest points overall is the winner.


Review


Gibsons Mind The Gap Card Game has a similar playing rule and structure as a classic card game UNO. It is very easy to learn and play. With the luxury packaging design of cards in a metal tin box, this card game is a perfect collective for London travellers and a great souvenir for your friends and family.
