Board & Card Games Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people who like playing board games, designing board games or modifying the rules of existing board games. It only takes a minute to sign up.
I still remember the rules pretty well, the name escapes me though. The cards look a lot like Phase 10, so I'm hoping my grandma didn't just make it up.
Each player is dealt a hand of 6(?) cards
Each player is also dealt a stack of 30 cards that is face down except for the top card which can be flipped
And the remaining cards become the draw pile.
The goal is to get rid of your whole stack of 30, by placing your cards on one of 4 spots around the draw pile.
Each spot around the pile your trying to place cards in order of 1-12, once it reaches 12 the spot is restarted.
You are forced to always place a card, and if no spot on either of the 4 piles is available, you have 4 rows by you that you can stack. You can take cards from it on your turn, but only in the order they're placed so you had to be careful.
There were a couple of Free cards that you could place anywhere.
Even though it sounds complicated written out it was played pretty simply, and was a lot of fun. Hoping to find it again through some help on here, thank you!
Each player is dealt a stockpile of 30 cards. The winner will be
whoever manages to empty their stockpile first. Cards are played onto
four shared building piles in numerical sequence from 1 to 12. On each
turn, a player draws until they have five cards in their hand, and
then plays cards from: their hand, a top card of their discard piles,
or their stockpile. At the end of their turn, a player must discard
onto one of their four personal discard piles. Strategy involves the
organizing of cards into the discard piles, care in not setting up the
next players for good plays, knowing when to play from which option,
and especially the timing of playing a valuable "Skip-bo" wildcard.
Skip-bo is based on Traditional Card Games: Spite and Malice.
