Play Nine

Me and my wife went down to my local games store (Gauntlet Games) this weekend and played a round of golf with Play Nine.

For those of you that don't know, this is a card game for between 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.  You get a hand of 8 cards placed face down in front of you.  You try to match pairs before all the cards are flipped face up.

Getting ready for the first hole.

This is a very simple game, but it tons of fun.  We were hoping to have 5 players, but one of our group had to leave so we ended up playing with 4 players.  I played fairly aggressively, going out even when I had 10-12 points because I was leaving my opponents with 15-20 points still showing.  I didn't always win the hole, but I did force some bad holes on others throughout the game.

I ended up winning by a good margin.  Of course, my score was nothing to write home to Mom about.

This game is on my list of must haves.  It if a quick play and works for lots of age ranges.  I've played this game 100 plus times and still enjoy it.


  1. very interesting card game, looking at the website and thinking buying 4 boxes for to give as Xmas gifts, thanks for the info..


  2. It really is a great game. And it works well for people that aren't "gamers".
