Dark Rainbow

These conventions apply to any variant with a dark rainbow (touched by all colors and one of each) suit.


Black Conventions & Rainbow Conventions#

  • Dark rainbow "inherits" all of the conventions for black cards and all of the conventions for rainbow cards.
  • Some specific clarifications and exceptions are listed below.

Dark Rainbow Saves#

  • Players should save dark rainbow 3 and dark rainbow 4 with a number clue.
  • There are two exceptions to this:
    • if the color clue also touched another critical card that is visible in the trash (e.g. not a 5 and not dark rainbow)
    • if the color matches a suit that is already completely played or accounted for
  • Additionally, Loaded Play Clues are always "turned on" for number saves on dark rainbow 3 and dark rainbow 4 specifically.
  • Note that in variants where a black color clues is available, dark rainbow 3 and dark rainbow 4 must always be saved with a black color clue.
    • Along the same lines, in Dark Rainbow & Dark Pink, dark rainbow cards should be saved with a pink clue, and in Dark Rainbow & Dark Brown, dark rainbow cards should be saved with a brown clue.
