lanuk - the connecting rooms


Lanuk is a family and kitty party entertainer board game played between 3 or more people. It is a 70 number game with 10 rooms (numbers) and LANUK (5 suites) on a card. Caller picks a number (key or room number) randomly and announces it. Players have to insert key for that room (strike that number) on their card if it is present. If all connected rooms (numbers) of a pattern have a key (are striked), player has to say pattern name to announce a win. For Lanuk same Tambola/Housie board can be used.


There are Keys (numbers), Rooms and Suites. 2 steps are there: Get Key (strike number) and Open Room (or Suite). Get key means when a number is called player gets the Key of the Room (if present on their card). Open Room means when all connected Rooms have a key then a room is considered to be open e.g. Room 12 is considered to be open when keys of Rooms 1, 12, 29 and 33 are present.
