Object of the game

For your team to be the first to get 3 sets of 5 chips in a row.

How to play

Deal out 5 cards to each player. Every other person is on a team. Team 1 takes blue chips and Team 2 takes red chips. The white chips are used when you get 5 chips of the same color in a straight line, you then cap that row.

If your row comes out of a corner square you only need 4 chips to get your row of 5 because the corner counts as if it already has a chip. Both teams can use the same corner at the same time.

Rows can be straight or diagonal. When a color has 2 capped rows intersecting, the third set cannot use any of the chips in those two capped rows. In other words you can intersect your rows only one time.

A card with 11 (any color) can put a chip on where ever you desire. A card with 12 (any color) can take any chip off the board. The Wild card acts as an 11 or 12.

Example Game

  • Player one lays down a card with a green four and places a blue chip on the green four square.
  • Player one draws a card off the draw pile.
  • Player two lays down a red 10 card and places the red chip on the red 10 square and draws a card off the draw pile, and so on…
  • Players draw a card after the chip is laid each turn. If a player forgets to draw a card and the next player has taken his turn he loses his chance to draw a card and thus plays with four cards.
  • Laugh and have fun!
