Pipo is a card game played with adorable alien characters.
Cruising space, the good ship Pipo met an untimely accident and plummeted to Earth scattering the alien tourists. This event put the upstanding aliens on the wanted list!
The good citizens of Earth, hiding the aliens in their hands, take turns aiding their escape corresponding to the “CONDI” set by the previous player.
Release all the aliens in your hand to win!
But be careful, increase the aliens in your hand and come one step closer to being busted by the police and you could self destruct!
Use the human helpers tactically and go for victory!
