This is a hoot to play and you're sure to get many belly laughs as you fight across the table to claim your stacks. My family loves Skip-Bo and it's alot like it, but faster paced and has the element of grabbing stacks of cards that make it the most energetic game since "Spoons." Only 5 people can play at a time, but any more than that would create havoc and chaos that no household could tolerate! Enjoy!

This game is so easy to learn and so much fun to play! I have played with my kids (11 & 15) and my parents, and all ages have fun. It is so much more fun to play than UNO, as it is simultaneous play!

The game can easily be modified to teach younger kids symbol recognition, and sequencing, before making this the "frenzy from start to finish" game that it is when playing with really fast and competitive people!

Makes a great birthday gift too, as the kid giving it can quickly teach those at the party how to play and get a mini tournament going!

Happen to know a card game called "Spit"? You know, that competitive solitaire-like game, only for two or more players. Where you don't take turns, and you have to keep very alert, because sometimes the very pile you were hoping to play on gets played on first by the other player.

Well, Hasbro's Ratuki isn't Spit. It's Spit-like. But faster, with a unique set of cards that adds a challenging perceptual/conceptual twist that makes it into something very much like a new game entirely.

The object of the Ratuki is to capture the most cards by being the first to complete a set of 5 cards, again and again and again. Players begin with a hand of 3 cards. There can be as many piles in the playing area as there are players. Each pile has to start with a ONE. Actually, there are five different kinds of ONEs: roman numerals, bilingual number names, fingers, faces of a die, and your regular Arabic-numeral type numbers. In a similar vein, there are TWOs of 5 kinds, each of which can be played on top of a ONE of any kind.

So, yes, you're racing to build stacks of up to 5 cards, and equally yes, they can be of any kind, and even moreso, you have to constantly switch your expectations of which kind of number actually comes next.

Then there are the Ratuki cards, which you can use to capture a stack at any time. Sadly, there are only two of these wild delights. When you play your Ratuki card, you're supposed to say "Ratuki." Turns out to be almost as much fun to say that silly word as it is to play the card. Let's say it together now, for the fun of it: ra-tooooo-kee! See what I mean?

And so the game goes. Speaking of which, if you can't play, you can always discard one or more of the cards in your hand and pick up a new card from your draw pile.

What I Can Tell You:
Yesterday Clary came over with Christmas gifts for the kids, a breakfast sandwich and new wallet and to visit now that I am feeling sooooo much better post op. After December playing, a fun card game with my girl was exactly what the doctor ordered.

After we ate, I tossed the deck on the table and threw the directions at her. I had read them the night before and was dying to give it a whirl. The game, although it originally appeared complicated, (it took the two of us reading it two times to figure it out) was so not complicated. There is a lot to remember but we had a blast and laughed at each other the entire time.

It is a quick game, kind of like spit but so much smarter. The cards go from 1-5 but they are depicted in various themes, like a domino, a hand holding up fingers, the number, and the number in word (one, two, etc.) So on top having to be quick, you need to really see those cards.

So, to begin everyone has their own pile. They take three cards (you must always be holding 3 cards), then someone starts a pile using either a 1 or a Ratuki card. Then you slap the cards down going up or down and the person who gets up to a 5 or uses a Ratuki card which can be any number takes the pile. The game continues until someone runs out of cards. Each card is worth a point, subtract the cards still in hand and in your junk pile (if you can't get rid of one of your 3 cards, you can junk it and take another) The first person to reach 100 wins. Clary won!

It was fun and we called each other names as we slipped cards in before the other. Grrr...It really was fun and I imagine that the more players there are the crazier it becomes.

A great game to play with family and friends.

The box says ages 8 and up, but I think a game-ready 6-year-old would be fine. Very quick game, just need to be ready to shuffle each colored stack. Choose a stack of cards from 2-5 depending on how many players you have, each player gets one colored stack (draw pile) and draws three cards. Everyone starts to play by trying to play a 1 card, the number of stacks is equal to the number of players in the game. Then you can play off each other's played cards. Then build up to 5, but you can also go back down as you go up to 5. Example 1-2-3-2-1-2-3-4-3-4-5 so there's more cards to win when you land the 5 and shout Ratuki! Also the wild Ratuki cards can stand in for any number. If you get stuck, use your discard pile and draw another card. But those discarded cards will be subtracted from your total at the end as will any cards not played when the first player gets rid of their cards.
