Up Stage is a multiplayer card game. The goal is to be the first to complete all 10 stages. To complete a stage, you must create the proper melds. Melds are either Sets (a group of cards that all have the same number), a Run (a group of consecutive cards) or Colors (a group of cards that all have the same cards). After you have created your stage then you can place your remaining cards on other player's stages or your own. Once a player uses all the cards in their hand the round will end. The round will also end if all players create their stage. All players that completed a stage will advance to the next stage. Anyone who didn't complete a stage will have to try to do that stage again the next round. The first player to complete stage 10 will be declared the winner.
