HOW TO PLAY: Take a card or say “No Thanks” and pay one chip as you try to avoid points. If you take the card you get its points, but points are bad. But you also get the chips that others have played to avoid taking the card, and that’s good (each chip cancels out one point). If you collect cards in sequence, only the lowest one counts against your score

No Thanks – Rules of Play says:
No Thanks! is a card game designed to be as simple as it is engaging.

The rules are simple. Each turn, players have two options:

play one of their chips to avoid picking up the current face-up card
pick up the face-up card (along with any chips that have already been played on that card) and turn over the next card
However, the choices aren’t so easy as players compete to have the lowest score at the end of the game. The deck of cards is numbered from 3 to 35, with each card counting for a number of points equal to its face value. Runs of two or more cards only count as the lowest value in the run – but nine cards are removed from the deck before starting, so be careful looking for connectors. Each chip is worth -1 point, but they can be even more valuable by allowing you to avoid drawing that unwanted card.
