Phase 10 – where play and learning meet

Mattel sent us over a set of Phase 10 to try out.

What is Phase 10 ?

From the makers of UNO™ comes a rummy-type card game with a challenging and exciting twist!
The box includes 108 cards and instructions.

How to play Phase 10

The object of the game is to be the first player to complete 10 varied phases with two sets of three, one run of seven, or seven cards with the same color.
The twist is that each Phase to be completed is specific for each hand dealt.
Players who complete one Phase advance to the next, but those who don’t must keep trying until they do.
Each deck features “Wild” and Skip” cards, which add excitement and can help you get out of a sticky situation. A “Wild” card can be used in place of a number card, as well as be used as any color to complete any phase, while a “Skip” card causes your opponent to lose a turn!
Be the first person to complete all ten phases to win the game.

Our thoughts

I love the game. It is both stimulating and challenging and it is the perfect balance between playing and learning.
I first thought the game may be too advanced for Hamish but he slowly started to understand the rules better as we played more hands.
This is a great game for the holidays to keep those inquiring minds learning and busy.
