Product Description

If you can't beat them, annoy them! In this game, you'll find that being catty, along with a little meanness and come minor annoyances, actually pays off. It's all in the name of fun.

In this game, there are eight cards piled high. Who can get through them first' Will your opponent go Wild or be Spiteful' It could go either way. Simply complete a center stack of cards in order from 1-13 and cause suffering to an opponent. Deplete your entire card stack and you win. But beware of those sly moves along the way.

Game features deluxe coated cards for a luxury "snap" and feel. Contains 110 playing cards and illustrated rules. For 2 to 5 players. Time to learn: 10 minutes. Time to Play 30 minutes.

MALICE is an old game, but Parker Brothers (now defunct) came up with a good one and sold it to Hasbro.

You can learn to play in about ten minutes, a game lasts about a half hour.

This is my family's favorite two-player game. It allows people of vastly different skill levels to have fun at the same time. This being said, order yours from one of the entries under "more buying choices." Eighty dollars plus twenty for shipping (nearly $100) is way too much for a card game.

We host exchange students and modified the rules until their english improved. All of our students got the game as a Christmas present. It was one of their favorites. They taught their parents back home how to play and each year I send a few more games overseas for them to share with the rest of their friends. It is still a favorite game in our home. We adjust the cards dealt depending on how long we want the game to last. Many nights we lose track of time. Our longest session lasted until 4 AM. If you enjoy playing games do not pass this one up!

We've been playing this card game for years, starting with regular playing cards. This 110 card deck by was put out by Parker Brothers specifically for the Spite and Malice game. You can learn to play in about ten minutes, a game lasts about a half hour. Although suggested for adults, the Rules as provided can be easily simplified for children. Our preteen grandchildren love this game, having learned it at an earlier age. Number sequencing is the major part of this game - it is definitely mentally stimulating with the "spite and malice" options in play.

The card design is unique, with the cat in a separate pose for each card value. The card coating gives a good feel and reduces wear. Because the printed numbers are in a calligraphic style, there are one or two which some may find initially confusing - this is the only potential negative for this card game.

Parker Brothers needs make this card game available again!

Spite and Malice is the most fun you will have playing cards. Basically you have a pile of cards, laid face-down, that you have to use to win the game (your "stack"). You do this by building on piles (which you do with your opponents) which you place in the middle of the table (the "build" piles). On your turn, you play cards onto the "build" piles by using the cards in your hand and the card in your "stack". You turn the top card in your "stack" face-up and try and use it on your turn.

There are a number of wild cards, which is where the "spite and malice" part comes in. You can either use the wild cards to substitute for a number you don't have, or you can use them to spite your opponent. My personal favorite is the "End Anyone's Turn" card, which you can play when you see your opponent is on a winning streak.

We've played this game with a number of people, and everyone loved it. It's a fun, addictive game that is better than any regular card game I've ever played. I can't recommend it enough.

I love this game. It is hilarious when playing in groups to see who will be maliced and the ensuing arguments and debates over who should add the extra card to their pile. Everyone should have this game. Keeps the mind sharp to keep up with what is going on and the spites change the program altogether. BUY THIS GAME, YOU WILL HAVE FUN!

Our family plays this all the time and really enjoys it. Our son is eight and caught on easily. Guest that have played have all said that they would like to get the game to play with their adult friends. Fairly quick rounds but lots of fun.

The box of cards arrived in good condition....but the instructions for the game (which were supposed to be in the box) were missing, I wrote the sender that I needed the instructions, but I have received no answer! The game is useless without the instructions. Can I return it?

I played this game so much when I was younger, and it's great to have an exact replica for my own now, especially since they're harder to find! Perfect condition.
