There's no boring wait for your turn in this game. All players are part of the chaotic frenzy to rid your cards by stacking them in numerical sequence - up or down - on the centre piles. The twist to this game is that numbers are depicted in five different ways: numerals, die faces, Spelled words, Roman numerals, and the number of fingers showing on a hand. Numbers are spelled out in English and Spanish, but not French, which posed an added challenge for our Francophone testers, as did the Roman numerals for kids who hadn't seen them before. A fun game, with just enough of a recognition challenge to add a little brain work, too.
I really like this game. It's easy to win if you move quickly and pick up cards often. I want to play this game all the time. I sometimes get the numbers mixed up when I see the roman numerals or hand numbers. We sometimes hurry too much, so put the wrong card on, which makes it even more fun.- Nadia (F9)
Great game; easy to understand. Fun fast pace card game - a much better version of the card game speed. The concept is very easy to grasp, so both my cousin who is 8 and my grandma who is 86 can play. The more people you are, the more fun it is. The fast pace of the game is what we enjoyed the most. A game you can take out and play with anybody. - Ann Lemire
