This game is one of those age-friendly games that puts the whole family on an equal playing field. The board portrays two of every card in a deck, excluding the jacks. Accompanying the game are two decks of actual playing cards, and three colors of playing chips. Players are dealt their beginning hand of cards, and then play begins. The object is to create a sequence of five cards in a row (either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) on the board by playing cards from your hand and covering a matching card up on the board. Drawing jacks from the deck allow you to either remove an opponent's chip from the board or play your own chip wherever you want. The first player (or team) to cover five cards in a row with their chips is the winner. This is an exciting game of strategy that the whole family can enjoy. Ours did! - Melissa
