In the original game, there was only one discard pile. This meant that if the exact card you needed wasn't layed down by the person before you, you didn't have many options but to pick up from the pile. In this version, there are three discard piles, which really helps to speed up the games, and prevents a lot of frustration in the later phases.
Scoring was also taken out of this game altogether. Now it is just the first person to passs the tenth phase. There are tiebreakers, but interestingly enough, according to the rules, there is still the possibility that this game could end in a tie.
One more thing I liked about this Twist version is the fact that "going out" has more reward than in the regular phase 10 game. Now, instead of just getting a score of zero, which would only help you in a tie, you get to move ahead an extra space if you lay down all of your cards. This adds all new risks and rewards.
All in all, a great game! If you like phase 10, you will love this version!
Phase 10 Twist adds several twists to the original. First, there's a board with a phase track, including Twist spots in between some phases. At the end of each round, players move forward 1, 2, or 3 spaces depending on how well they did that round. The scoring system keeps players in the game and reduces the chance of a blowout win. If a player ends up on a Twist spot, they have the option of choosing a special Twist phase, which are of varying difficulty but are generally more difficult than the normal phases. Of course, the reward is bigger for accepting such a challenge - players move forward double the normal amount of spaces. Basically, the Twist spots offer a high-risk, high-reward option.
The final twist is a tray in the center of the board that holds 3 discard piles. This takes away some of the "luck of the draw" speeds up the game. It also makes discard decisions more strategic as you have to decide which pile to discard to. Overall, the twists offered in this version of Phase 10 add some decisions and risk, reduce the luck of the draw, and speed up the game. All of these make the original rummy spinoff much more enjoyable.
