Crazy Eights

Crazy Eights Similar to Uno (without all the action cards) Crazy Eights is a fairly easy game for kids.

For older children, this game offers a slight beginner's chance at learning strategy or bluffing. For younger children, this game is great for number, color, even shape recognition.

Object of the game: Be the first player to discard all cards in your hand and accrue the least amount of points by the end of the game.

How to play the game: Each player is dealt eight cards. One card is turned over to begin the discard pile. If it is an eight put it back and draw another card. Play goes to the left of the dealer. Each person has to match the card which was discarded the turn before, either by number or by suit.

If you don't have a match, you can still play any eight in the hand. In addition, the eight in any suit is wild. If you don't have a match or an eight you must draw from the pile until you get one that is playable. This is where the strategy comes in for older kids, since they can draw from the pile whether they have a match or not ....just to throw the other players off!

Why parents love this game:

  • All ages can play

  • Encourages color, number, and even shape recognition not to mention counting skills

  • Teaches children how to strategize in a simple way
