The game of Red Light is a very simple jeopardy game in which two players race to reach 50 points. In a bag, 4 red and 24 green chips ("lights") are shuffled. Each turn, a player repeatedly draws chips until either a "red light" is drawn or the player holds and scores the number of "green lights" drawn (i.e. the turn total). At any time during a player's turn, the player is faced with two decisions:
Draw ("Go") - If the player draws a
Red: the player scores nothing and it becomes the opponent's turn. If the red draw was the last remaining red, all chips are returned to the bag and are shuffled.
Green: the player adds 1 to their turn total and the player's turn continues.
Hold ("Stop") - The turn total is added to the player's score and it becomes the opponent's turn.
