The Deck and Dealing

Crazy 8s uses a standard deck. Each player is dealt a hand of 7 cards. The remaining cards form the draw pile.

Play

The top card of the draw pile is played face up. Players take turns to play a card onto the table - they must play a card which either matches the suit of the previous card or has the same value.

Some cards have special effects when played. There are many variations available on which cards have which powers.

If a player has no valid cards to play, they must draw a card from the draw pile.

The round ends when a player gets rid of all their cards. All other players score penalty points based on the cards remaining in their hands.

Scoring

Players score penalty points based on the value of the cards remaining in their hand.

Face cards are worth 10 points, Aces are worth 1 point and all other cards are worth their number values. The suit changing card is worth 50 points.

Winning

The game ends when one player reaches 50 points. The target can also be set to 100, 150 or 200 points. The player with the fewest points wins.
