App Store Description

Amaturufu (pronounced Ah-mah-too-roo-foo) is a card game popular in Rwanda but can be enjoyed by people from everywhere. This version of my app feature the 1-on-1 solo game with three level of difficulty.
The game is made of 36 cards (3, 4, 5, 6, Q, J, K , 7, A of each suit). Their values are in that order. However, when counting to see who won, 3, 4, 5, 6 all have a value of 0. Q, J, K, 7, A are the only ones that count towards winning. Thus, you want to collect as many of those as you possibly can. Their values are 2, 3, 4, 10, 11 respectively.

The card with it's face up under the deck is call the trump card. Fun fact: trump card means "Iturufu (pronounced E-too-roo-foo)" in Kinyarwanda (language spoken in Rwanda)., hence the name of the game. I.E. Amaturufu can be thought of as a card game of many trump cards since each game has its own trump card, which is, most of the times, different than the previous or next games'.

Anyway, if someone plays a card of the same suit as the trump card while the other player plays a card from a different suit, the player who played the card of the same suit as the trump card wins that play and collects both cards. Otherwise, if both cards are of the same suit, the player who played the card with the highest value wins that play and collects both cards. Finally, if none of the cards is of the same suit as the trump card and they are of different suits, the player who played the first card (the bottom card) wins that play and collects both cards.

The player who wins a play goes first the next play.

Happy playing!
