So recently my sister taught me how to play crazy 8 countdown...
And I love it!!! It's so fun! When I first played it, I kinda failed. But, the second time I beat her and won! " I am the champion my friends, I'll keep on winning till the end! " Enough with the fun!...
This is how you play. First everyone gets 8 cards(You are allowed to look at them). The objective of the game is to finish your cards and get down to 0. So,you finish your 8 cards then move on to 7 cards, finish those move on to 6 cards and so on until you get to 0 cards. Someone puts a card down from the deck to start,then,somebody puts the card they want down on top of the first card.You take turns.If you put any kind of 2 down the person that's after you will have to pick up 2 cards. If you have 2 cards of 2 you can put them down and the person after you will pick up 4 cards. But, if they put down one more 2 the person after that will have to pick up 6 cards. The maximum people that can play this game is 4 people and the minimum amount is 2 people.
The Queen of spades makes you or someone else pick up 5 cards from the deck. When you have a Jack of any kind and if you put it down the person after you will miss a turn. There is also a wild card. If you are on round 8 the wild card is 8 of any kind, if you are on round 7 the wild card is 7 of any kind. The best thing about wild cards are that you can put them down anytime and change the shape to anything. Also if you have more than 1 of the same number card you can put them all down at the same time . So as I was saying before, you start by putting a card down from the deck, then the first person puts a card down that is the same number or the same shape as the card on the table. You keep on taking turns and either putting down the same number or shape as the one on the table down. As I said you keep on taking turns and trying to finish each round until you get to round 0, when you have 0 cards.
That's how you play Crazy 8 Countdown!
