Take 5


Online Games
Tony Lawhorne -232-

2-10-player game of Take 5 from Amigo, played on Board Game Arena (BGA). GM: Tony Lawhorne.

Level of Players Expected: Beginners Welcome

I will post information on how to attend prior to game start. You must have a BGA account to play (they are free).

In Take 5, you want to score as few points as possible. To play the game, you shuffle the 104 number cards, lay out four cards face-up to start the four rows, then deal ten cards to each player. Each turn, players simultaneously choose and reveal a card from their hand, then add the cards to the rows, with cards being placed in ascending order based on their number; specifically, each card is placed in the row that ends with the highest number that's below the card's number. When the sixth card is placed in a row, the owner of that card claims the other five cards and the sixth card becomes the first card in a new row.

In addition to a number from 1 to 104, each card has a point value. After finishing ten rounds, players tally their score and see whether the game ends because someone has passed a particular point threshold. When this happens, the player with the fewest points wins!
