A strategic battle card game for 2-6 players that plays in 20-30 min. for ages 8+.
CLASH of the CARDS is a high-speed, strategic battle card game in which you battle your opponents to steal cards and win hands. To win each hand of this rummy-style game you collect armies (sets of 4). The first player to collect 2 armies wins the hand, and all players count points. Keep playing hands until someone reaches 1,000 points.
Each card in the game can be harnessed during battle. Use special cards to defend your armies, to walk away from battle, slow down your opponents, or join battles you were not invited to, in order to increase your chance at winning cards. This game allows you to set up traps for other players and develop attack and defense strategies from your first turn.

Playing CLASH of the CARDS is easy. The important thing to keep in mind is that higher cards beat lower cards in battles, BUT lower cards are worth more points at the end of the game.
Shuffle the cards and deal 8 cards to each player. Place the remaining cards in the center creating a draw pile.The Player left of the dealer starts and play continues clockwise.
