Matryoshka is played in four rounds. In each round, each player shows a Matryoshka from their hand and all other players make a hidden trade offer. After checking all offers, the player trades their card with another player. At the end of each round, players must show a part of their collection by placing Matroyshkas in front of them. That way, other players know what they’re looking for. The player with the most valuable collection at the end of the game wins.
