Okanagan Shuffle is a word card game apparently produced for and sold in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. The picture on the back of the cards is of a wind surfer on Lake Okanagan, and the box features a cartoon of Ogopogo, the legendary creature inhabiting that lake.
The game comes with two decks, each with 51 letter cards and 2 wild cards named for Ogopogo. There are rules for five games:
1. A rummy-like game.
Players are dealt 7 cards, and on your turn you may:
When one player uses up all cards in hand, the hand ends and each player gets one point per card in hand. After a certain number of hands, the lowest total wins.
2. A children's game reminiscent of Rack-o.
Each player has 5 cards in hand, and on their turn draws from the draw or discard pile, and discards. The first player to have 5 consecutive letters in hand wins.
3. A Gin Rummy-like game with growing hand size.
Deal N cards to each player, who in their turn draws and discards, and lays down their entire hand to spell a word if they can, after which everyone else gets one more turn to try to do the same. Each player who lays down a word gets one point for the hand. The number N of cards dealt (and hence the length of the target word) starts at 2, and increases one per hand until N=8. The highest point total wins.
4. Themed words.
The dealer declares a theme -- e.g. animals, colors, girls' names, etc. -- and deals each player 7 cards. Players draw and discard as in game 3. The game ends when a player can lay down a word of any length that fits the theme declared by the dealer.
Draw 5 cards, and try to make and lay down a word of 3 or more letters. Draw cards as needed. You win if you can use the entire deck making legal words.
