Starting Hand

This is an example of a hand you might be dealt.  Remember to win, you need a pain level of 0. To determine your pain level:

 

  -Start at 10

 

   -Add the +4 PAIN card

 

Determine which health cards you can use:

The -3 HEALTH card requires $ or Insurance.  The -2 card requires $.  Since you have the MONEY card, both cards will reduce your pain level.

 

   -Subtract the -3 and -2 HEALTH Cards

 

   -Your pain level is at a 9.

 

You need to try to get rid of the PAIN card  and get some other HEALTH cards to win!

Looking at this hand, the HEALTH cards add up to -10, so it seems like a winner.

 

  -Start at 10

 

 Determine which HEALTH cards you can use:

Both -4 HEALTH cards require $ and Insurance.  Since you have neither, the cards will not reduce your pain level. (Note you can only use one surgery card to win, so even if you had $ and Insurance, this hand would not be a winner).  The remaining -2 card is Free, so it does count.

 

   -Subtract the -2 HEALTH Cards

 

   -Your pain level is at an 8.
