The card game Oz, based on the L. Frank Baum novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, contains two decks of cards: one a character deck with nine copies each of Dorothy, Toto the dog, the Scarecrow, the Lion, the Tin Man, the Good Witch, the Wicked Witch and the Wizard of Oz, and the other a story deck, with each story card explaining how to score points at the end of the game, e.g., each pairing of Dorothy and the Lion scores two points, while having the majority of Witch cards is worth eight points.
The game lasts 8—9 rounds, and at the start of each round, the players draw cards from the decks to create n+1 columns (where n is the number of players), with each column having two character cards and one story card. Each player chooses one column, placing the story card on the table and the character cards in his hand. From the fifth round on, a player can have only four story cards in front of him, so each time he chooses a column, he must discard a story card from his collection. After the final round, players reveal their character cards and tally their points to see who wins.
