Step 1: Collect Income
Income is the sum of all values in this white ring. Take that value in Swindles ($) from The Slush Fund. The Flush Card gives you a base Income of $2, with Green Cards increasing this value.
Step 2: Buy And/or Use Cards
Buying Cards: Vou may only buy Open Sewer Cards. To do so, pay the cost of that Card to The Slush Fund, then keep the Card face-up in front of you.
The cost of each Card is in the bottom-right corner. When a Card is bought from The Open Sewer, immediately replace it with the top Card of The Rat Pack.
You may buy newly-replaced Open Sewer Cards on the same turn as well.
Use Cards: Red Cards, Blue Cards, Grey Cards, Bonus Bonanza and your Flush Card can be used. To use a Card, carry out its effect, then place it in The Cesspit.
You may use Cards on the same turn you bought them or save them for future use.
Step 3: Buy Cheese
You end your turn by buying up to 3 pieces of Cheese, of any color. Each piece of Cheese costs $1, paid to The Slush Fund.
