Product Description

Skip-Bo is the ultimate sequencing card game from the makers of UNO! Players use skill and strategy to create stacks of sequentially numbered, ascending cards (2,3,4…) until they have no more left to play. Once everyone is dealt their own personal stockpile of cards, play begins by drawing from a central pile and building up to four “build” piles. The Skip-Bo “wild” cards break up static situations and may be played as any number. Use these cards wisely, for they can really help you beat your opponents! The first player to deplete all of his or her Skip-Bo stockpile cards is the winner! Includes 162 cards and instructions. Colors and decorations may vary.

Skip-Bo was first introduced to me by my friend at school. We were bored sitting around the band hall, so she pulled out her game and we gathered a group. Ever since then, it has been my very favorite card game. It's been around for ages; my friend's grandmother used to play it. It's certainly stood the test of time. Every day that year during band, we played Skip-Bo in a practice room. If you're easily addicted to games, beware of this one.
Anyone who can hold five cards in their hand and count to twelve can play. The larger the group, the better the game. Another fun aspect is that you can always make it last however long you want. You can deal any amount of cards; if you want to play a quick game before work, deal five. If you've got some time to kill, deal thirty-five. It's all up to you.
However, if you can possibly find an older edition of the game, I would recommend it. The old versions had a sliding tray that made for easy access of the cards, while the newest one is a little trickier to put away. Then again, that can always be solved by putting the cards in a plasic bag or different container, but with 162 cards, it's easy to lose some.
Also, in the deck, they include some blank cards that they tell you to throw away. I've kept them, thinking they could be used as a make-shift card if you lose one, but they're quite annoying to keep track of. You might want to follow the directions in that aspect.
Overall, it's a great game. Very entertaining for all ages. Highly recommended.

This is a game I play with my kids or alone with my husband - we're all hooked. It's simple and quick to learn, without a lot of gimmicks you find with other prepackaged card games ("no, Mom, the floppit can only go in the quirzy pile when it's a gorpin turn and otherwise you have to pass to the limburger.")

I like SkipBo because the kids often win, not because we're letting them but because they've got a better hand, better luck, better strategies; whatever. You don't have to feel like you're letting them win - it happens naturally. And then they feel naturally smart, or lucky, and gloat for hours. If an adult does win, the kids usually accept that it's fair and square.

About my only complaint with this game is that there are about a thousand cards that come in the deck. Shuffling is no simple matter for me, a small-handed person. I generally separate the deck into two piles, shuffle those, then shuffle them together the best I can. But it's impossible for the kids to do on their own, and makes game setup a little tedious at the very beginning.

Skipbo is flexible in that you can choose to play the full 30-card game (takes a while, so bring a snack and choose a comfy cushion!) or a quicker game with only 15 or even 10 cards. You can play with two players or more, though I recommend using fewer cards with more people because otherwise the game will take forever - not entirely a bad thing!!

Why is it that the low-tech, deceptively simple games and toys are the ones we keep coming back to time and again?

Invest ten bucks in this game or buy someone a set for a birthday present. You'll be thanked many times over in the form of kids asking politely if they can cream you once again... :-)))

My grandmother showed me this game years ago! I have gone through two decks of skip-Bo playing cards. (162 cards each deck.) If we are not playing Scrabble; we are playing Skip-Bo. Fun for the whole family!
If your kids know their colors and how to count to 12 they can play. Or, you can teach them to count to 12 using this game.
Skip-Bo is easy and fun to play. Fun to play at parties. Try it!

What an awesome game!!! The best thing is that you can play in about 20 minutes. Not like other card games that take an hour to play. We take to the beach in case of rainy days.

To play you deal each person 20 cards (if 4 people playing I suggest dealing only 15). Turn the top card over and person with highest card gets to go first. You get 5 cards from the deck. Each time its your turn you get however many cards you need to have 5. You have 4 spaces in the middle of the table for everyone to play on. You also have 4 spaces near you where you discard at the end of your turn.
The object of the game is to get rid of your stack of cards before everyone else. To do that, you try to build up the 4 spaces in the middle to get rid of the card showing on your stack. They are numbered 1-12 with wild cards you can make any number you want.
On your turn if you have a #1 card you can start a stack in the middle for everyone to play on or you can hold on to it (especially if your stack has a #3 that you need to play). At the end of your turn you discard into one of your 4 spaces. Next persons turn in clockwise position. When it's your again you get however many cards you need to have 5 cards in your hand. 1st person getting rid of their stack wins!
