Ok, so here’s a bit of an out of place video: we’re packaging everything up for our Fundraiser Perk Packages, and one of them is a pack of Go-Stop cards. We mentioned in our top secret video for the Fundraiser Pack (which we sent a top secret URL for to those who bought the Care Package) that we might have a video on explaining how to play Go-Stop. So, we tried filming that video with Soo Zee, who played a lot of Go-Stop. We thought it’d be a way to explain the game. People could Google “How to Play Go-Stop” then find our video and learn everything there is about it.
Whoa were we ever wrong!
Sure, we are a bit more comfortable playing it now. It was our second time playing it, after having forgotten everything from playing it the first time, but I think we caught on kinda ok? We don’t have good strategies yet, but we know the basics. There are a few cards exposed. You match your cards up with those exposed. Collect a specific amount of different groups of cards to get points. The first to three points can tell everyone to either keep playing, or they can stop the game. That’s the basic rule. All of the stuff afterwards with how you pay the winner are beyond us. TOTALLY BEYOND US! But we played for candy rather than money. We’d never play for money. SCREW THAT! It’s still fun without the money part, though!
Anyhow, if you’re interested in getting more in-depth with the rules, rather than just floundering around the way we did, you can check them on Wikipedia. They’ll tell you about the different kinds of families to collect and whatnot. The ribbons and birds and gwang and pee. But at least you’ll know, from watching our video, to yell JO KWON at inappropriate times :D
