Go Stop Korean Card Game - Box 2

This is a traditional Korean Card Game called Go Stop / 고스톱 or 맞고 (Matgo). This game is very popular in South Korea with many adults and normally is played for fun, however some people do illegally play for money. The packs go be bought from basically every local mart, supermarket and even 7Eleven, prices range from ₩2,000 to ₩5,000 on average.

The super basic aim is to get points by collecting sets of matching cards. Different cards are special and are more valuable then normal cards. The full rules can be found below or in the videos.
