    A few years ago (I help with students at church) another leader brought a pack of these cards and suggested a few played.... I joined in and was hooked... So I purchased a pack of these cards for my game collection. I have had ages 8-88+ play this game and have never had anyone who didn't love it. Game Play: Phase 10 is sort of like Rummy backwards. Each player (2-6 players) are dealt 10 cards. You then lay the remaining cards face down in the middle and flip one card face up. On your turn you must pick a card up (either the one laying face up in the middle or one from the pile) and discard one face up in the middle (covering the previous face-up card). Your goal is to go through the 10 phases: (*As a note: a set is the same numbers (ie a set of 3 would be 4&4&4 or 8&8&8.... A run is a numerical order (ie a run of 4 would be 1&2&3&4 or 9&10&11&12) 1. 2 sets of 3 2. 1 set of 3 & 1 run of 4 3. 1 set of 4 & 1 run of 4 4. 1 run of 7 5. 1 run of 8 6. 1 run of 9 7. 2 sets o...

    A day after I bought this I was walking through Target and saw the deluxe version for about the same price. Ugh! The deluxe version is much better as it comes in a durable tin and has separate cards for each player to keep track of their phase. Don't make the mistake I did of buying this overpriced version.

    I absolutely LOVE this game! So fun! It's kind of like Rummy and Uno combined and on drugs. It's about 1 hour with two people and I would say it adds about 30min per additional person playing. I played with 5 people a couple of times and it was a LONG game. But we had a bottle of wine open, so it was a good night :). It's not very easy to explain the rules, but you understand the game after one phase.

    I had never heard of this game until my friend brought it over one night. I was immediately hooked on the game. I've always enjoyed playing cards, so having a new card game in my repertoire is a bonus. There was only two of us playing and it was fun, but as I read other reviews I look forward to playing it with a larger group of people. I am going to buy my own deck and have it on hand around the house, and bring it on the family vacation over the holidays. The game has a combination of elements that will make it fun for everybody. It is essentially a great twist on the classic game of rummy. Learning the game is relatively quick, and you will see how it works after a few rounds. Once you've caught on, you will be coming up with your own additional "Phases" in no time! I enjoyed the game very much, and wanted to write this review to get the word out there and have other people give this game a chance. I hope you find it as enjoyable I do.
