When playing Swap Meat, your goal is to be the first player to complete your collection of meat products each round. To do this, you sell the meat that isn’t part of your collection to the other players who will bid on it. You don’t have to accept the highest offer. You are better going with someone you trust; otherwise, you may be given some maggot-infested meat that could ruin your collection. The player with the most points after a set amount of rounds will game.
