I was first introduced to Skip Bo by the computer version and I became very addicted to it. Last month when I went camping with some friends I decided to get the actual card game.
In this game, the winner is the first to get rid of all of there cards in his stock pile. Each players gets thirty cards. This is called thier stock pile.
The first card is played by the number one and then two and so on until the twelve card is played. Once this is done, the pile is removed and the players start over.
If a player cannot play a card then he must put it in the discard pile which may be up to four discard piles.
In this game you get one hundrend sixty two cards. There are eighteen SKIP BO cards that can be usedon top of a numbered card or placed in the discrd pile.
Players can also play for points. The instructions say that the first to play to five hundred wins. You can also play in pairs or against someone else.
I found this game to a lot of fun. It is something that I definitly can play with someone. The fact tht I can also play for points (I am very competitive) also is a pleaser to me.
If you or friends and family like to play card games, this is definitly one that you don't want to miss getting.
