Five Crowns

Five crowns is a five-suited, rummy-style card game. It is a quick favorite for avid and casual card players alike. The unique deck provides each player multiple options for arranging their hand into books and runs.

The game has 11 rounds. It starts with 3 cards and 3s are wild. The next hand has 4 cards and 4s are wild, and so on til the Kings Go Wild!

Make the right combinations, be the first to go out, then watch the other scramble as they get one last chance to cut their losses.

Ages 8+, 1-7 players


The world’s fastest game! Everyone gets ten dice. Someone says, “Go!” and everyone rolls and rolls as fast as they can until someone gets all their dice on the same number. Sure, there are a few more rules, but you get the idea. It’s a fun, fast frenzy. It’s Tenzi!

2-4 players, ages 7-97
