This game also plays beautifully for large groups as long as you make a slight modification - instead of only dealing 4 rows, deal as many rows as there are players.
7 players, use cards from 1-77, deal 7 rows, give everyone 10 cards.
10 players, use cards 1-100, deal 10 rows, give everyone 9 cards.
This keeps big games from getting annoyingly random without losing the fun.
Good luck and have fun!
I would have happily paid $1.00 extra for the cards to last. E-mail me if & when you improve the quality and I'd be happy to amend this review.
It is the kind of game that you can chat while playing because it doesn't require absolute attention. And the game moves along fairly quickly, though I don't know why the gamne box calls the game "fast." It's not a game where speed is required; but each hand doesn't take much time and a complete game is not long.
The game has 104 cards numbered 1-104 and each card has 1-7 "skiers" on it. The point of the game is to end up with the fewest skiers (points).
Each player is dealt 10 cards and 4 cards are laid out face up on the table. For each hand, you take one card from your hand and put it on the table upside down. Then everyone turns over their card at the same time. Going in order from smallest number to largest, people build on these rows by putting on a card that is higher than the top card (if your card is higher than more than one card, you put it on the one that is closest). The rows can only have five cards. If your card would be the sixth, you have to take the first 5 and put your card at the bottom of the rows. The cards you have to take don't go in your hand, they go in the pile of cards that count against you.
The game rules have examples of how this works that will make it easier to understand than my explanation. There are also variations in which you only use certain of the cards. We played with all cards, even when we had fewer players. That way not all the cards are in play and you don't know what cards are in the unused pile.Read more ›
There is a little strategy involved in this game, but there's also a lot of luck involved as you try figuring out which card to play on each turn in order to avoid causing an avalanche. If you play your cards right, you usually will be in a decent position to get a low score, but knowing when the right time is to play each card can be a challenge in itself. The more people you have playing this game, the more unpredictable it gets, which makes it even more fun. It's one of the few games I have that can be played with a big group, and everyone I've played it with really enjoys it.Read more ›
Fun and silly, a great time that allows for talking and joking as the game plays.

we love this game. I've bought it before but this time it was ridiculously expensive. $45. Never would have bought it but I promised it to someone. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Susan Groesbeck

Cheap thin paper cards, not at all what I would have expected. Not the seller's fault, but these cards aren't going to hold up to the kids I bought them for.Published on June 20, 2013 by Gilbert Lee Huppert
this is a very fun game for all ages, and one that our family plays often.
We have also given it as a gift. easy to play.
My friend had a game called category 5. Which is similar. I think of this as a slightly less exciting version, but thats ok. I still thinks it was worth the price.Published on May 22, 2013 by M. Osterloh
Hard to be critical of games such as these, quick fillers that don't ask for much. Not too much to do here, a little strategizing to decide which card to play, depending on the... Read morePublished on May 19, 2013 by Renbutsu
This game sounded fun from the description, but it never took off with my kids. After several rounds, they were bored, and it hasn't been touched ever since.Published on December 26, 2012 by B. G .
