If you like rummy, your love Five Crowns! With 5 suits (they've added stars), a different number of cards, and a different wild card every hand, Five Crowns keeps you on your toes! In the first hand, three cards are dealt to each player, and threes are wild. In the second hand, four cards are dealt to each player, and fours are wild, etc. This can get confusing, and sometimes a player will accidentally discard a "wild card", which adds to the fun. The deck also contains jokers as additional wild cards. The best part of the game is that even if one person gets ahead, everyone still has a chance to win, because, "The game isn't over 'til the kings go wild!" This game is for everyone - the rules are easy, it's quick to learn, and the scoring is simple. I highly recommend it!

This is a great spin on gin rummy! Our family (adult children) enjoyed it so much, we bought a deck for our son's house so we don't have to remember to take it when we visit. We took it to the beach & played it almost every night. It's called Five Crowns because there is a fifth suit, stars. It can be played by all ages as long as the children understand how to play rummy. Because the wild card changes each round, there is a chance of anyone going out early or getting killed on any one round. It's definitely true that "the game isn't over till the kings go wild!" First round is three cards with threes as wild, second round deal four cards and fours are wild. (Jokers are always wild.) Create rummy combinations, of runs or three or more of a kind, keeping all cards In hand until you can go out. Everyone gets one more draw after someone goes out. Continue through kings which has you holding 13 cards. Score by points left in your hand. Low score wins the game. The only thinking is to remember what round you are on so you know what card is wild! Suggestions: 1. Buy a card shuffler as you have what amounts to two decks of five suits, 2. Get card holders if children or elderly are playing as jacks thru kings is a lot of cards to hold & move as you create runs & sets. 3. Enjoy a great game!

This is our go-to game at family get togethers. Multiple ages can play. It's fun, easy to learn, you can get a whole table of people playing it (if you have two decks), and did I mention it's fun?

This is a fun and easy card game to play with several people. Think it is best with 3 - 5 but can play with more. It is quick to learn, good for any age. If you know now to play rummy you've got it. Great game to pack.

This is a most enjoyable game.  Twenty-four of us meet once a week to play.  The group is divided into three tables of eight players each.  We play from 1 to 6 p.m. with each table proceeding at its own pace.  While one group usually plays only two or three games during the afternoon, my table sets a faster pace playing five games per meeting.  Because our pace is fast, we actually play with four decks of cards.  While playing the hand with two decks of cards, the other two decks are run through a shuffler.  The rules are easy to follow, allowing freedom to socialize.  Of course, we break fof coffee-and midway, taking turns to provide the edibles.  It's great fun  with scores running from our lowest of 7 to a high of over 300 as even the best players may be defeated by the luck of the deal. Try it with friends and/or family - you'll love it!
