Nox is a card game for two to six players ages eight and up.
Inside, you have a deck of cards numbered one through fifteen. There are six cards of each number.
The cards are high quality, nice thick cards with amazing artwork on them.
Set up is simple. Shuffle the cards and deal three cards to each player.
The cards are thick and slippery, so you may have to do the bucket and shovel shuffle with the kids. This is also a good time to remind them to be careful so they don't bend the cards.
On your turn, you play a card and then draw a card.
Place a card either in front of you, or on an opponent. You must play cards of the same color in a stack.
You can have more than one stack with the same color.
If two stacks end up with the same number,
Those stacks are combined.
When the round ends, you must have at least one stack of each color to score. If you are missing one, you get zero points for that round.
The round ends when all of the cards are played, or a player gets six stacks of cards in front of them. Add up the top card of each stack. That is your score. Example, this player would get sixty four points for this round. The first person to get to one hundred and fifty points first is the winner!
This game is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. I have played it with both adults and children and enjoyed it every time. It is simple to learn and play. It's a great "take that" kind of game. Our children didn't have any trouble playing. There was much laughter and giggling, and that makes any game a great game in my book! It will definitely get plenty of play at our family game nights.
