Kings go in the corners. Play your cards solitaire style and extend your turn as long as you can. Can’t make a single play? Pay the pot. First to empty your hand? You win the pot…plus your opponents’ point chips for their unplayed cards! Reach 100 points and win the game!
A game for 2-8 players ages 7 to adult. I think that six players are too many because it takes too long to play. Two players are fine but there might be several turns without being able to make a play. My opinion is that 4 players works best.
This Jax game is easy to learn and fun to play. View the complete instructions here.
Although the instructions say to equally distribute the chips among the players at the start of the game, this isn’t really necessary. A pile or two of chips that everyone can reach is fine. The chips in the centerpiece pot is what calculates the winner’s score. Truth be told, we found the chip scoring to be a bit silly and prefer the scoring method of the classic card game. It’s another great game from Jax that is small and easy to take on visits and/or travels.
