TAKE 5 / TAKE A NUMBER
With just two rules for how to play your cards these strategy card games are easy to learn, but packed with action, surprises, and plenty of chances to wreak havoc on your fellow players.
Here are the two rules: Your card must be higher than the last card in a row, and it has to be played next to the last card that’s closest in number.
If you play the sixth card in a row, you take that row and all the points in it. That’s when the game earns its name, as you're forced to "take five" cards.
