Catch a wave in Cowabunga, the card game of ups and downs!

Ride high on the wave, dodging obstacles as you play number cards to raise or lower the water level.  Once the tide gets too high, it starts dropping.  Too low, and it goes back up again.  Each time the tide changes, somebody gets an obstacle card.  If you crash on someone else's obstacle, it's wipeout city for you, dude! and you get a surfin’ cow.  If you can finish the game with the least amount of wipeouts (i.e. surfin’ cows), you'll be the big Cow-huna!
