Dark Omni & Gray Pink

These conventions apply to any variant with a dark omni suit or a gray pink suit.


Inheritance#

  • Dark omni cards "inherit" all of the conventions for black cards and all of the conventions for omni cards.
  • Gray pink cards "inherit" all of the conventions for black cards and all of the conventions for light pink cards.
  • Some specific clarifications and exceptions are listed below.

Normal Saves#

  • Dark omni or gray pink 2's on chop should be saved with a number 2 clue, as per normal.
  • Dark omni or gray pink 5's on chop should be saved with a number 5 clue, as per normal.
  • However, there are some exceptions, which are listed below.

Pseudo 5 Saves#

  • Dark omni or gray pink 3's and 4's on chop should be saved with number 5 clue.
    • This is because we want to preserve the ability to give a Play Clue with number 3 or number 4.
  • However, there are some exceptions, which are listed below.

Fake Saves#

  • When saving a dark omni or gray pink card with a rank clue, players can break the rules listed above in order to:
    • avoid violating Good Touch Principle
    • pick up an extra card (as a 2-for-1 instead of a 1-for-1)
  • Pink Promise does not apply if one of these things could be the case.
  • Thus:
    • A 2 clue on chop (touching 1 card) --> o2, any normal 2
    • A 2 clue on chop (touching 2+ cards) --> o2, o3, o4, o5, any normal 2
    • A 3 clue on chop (touching X cards with no 3's in the trash) --> any playable 3 (e.g. this is a Play Clue)
    • A 3 clue on chop (touching 1 card with 3's in the trash) --> any 3 that is in the trash
    • A 3 clue on chop (touching 2+ card with 3's in the trash) --> o2, o3, o4, o5, any 3 that is in the trash
    • A 4 clue on chop (touching X cards with no 4's in the trash) --> any playable 4 (e.g. this is a Play Clue)
    • A 4 clue on chop (touching 1 card with 4's in the trash) --> any 4 that is in the trash
    • A 4 clue on chop (touching 2+ card with 4's in the trash) --> o2, o3, o4, o5, any 4 that is in the trash
    • A 5 clue on chop (touching X cards) --> o2, o3, o4, o5, any other 5

The Fake 5's Chop Move & The Fake 5 Pull & The Fake 5 Number Discharge#

  • First, see the section on the Fake 5's Chop Move & the Fake 5 Pull (in variants with a dark pink suit).
  • Just like with dark pink, players can perform Fake 5's Chop Moves, Fake 5 Pulls, and Fake 5 Number Discharges in variants with a dark omni or gray pink suit.
