Description

If you’re looking for a game of Rummy with a twist, Top 5 Rummy is the game for you.  The game comes from designer Rüdiger Dorn who did the games Las Vegas, Istanbul, & Dragonheart.

The goal in Top 5 Rummy is to be the first player to collect number cards that complete 5 of the 7 available tasks.  There are 9 available double-sided tasks tiles describing 18 different tasks that can be used to provide variety.  The game board is where the twist comes in.  It is made up of a price wheel and a card tray with 8 slots.  Each card slot lines up with a price value on the price wheel.  The draw deck consists of 4 colors of cards with 2 sets numbered 1 – 10 in each color.  At the start of the game a card is drawn and placed face up in each of the card slots on the game board.  Each of the 8 cards will line up with a price value above it indicated on the price wheel.  This indicates how much it costs to buy that card or how many chips a player can receive for adding a card to that slot.  No more than 2 cards can occupy a particular card slot at a time.  Any time a card is purchased from the card tray the price wheel rotates one space. The cards in the card tray now will align with a new price value.  A card that had a price value of -0- before the wheel rotated would now have a price value of 7 after the turn of the wheel.  Players start with a hand of 5 cards and take turns buying and selling cards trying to collect the necessary cards to complete the tasks.  They will need to manage their coins and their hands plus keep track of how the price wheel on the board is turning.  The tasks to be completed are straight forward things like 5 even numbered cards, a full house, 3 of a kind, etc.  Each task tile has 4 player spots that can be occupied when completed.  A player may occupy only one spot on each task tile.  The timing of completing tasks to gain a spot on the tiles is critical as these spots can yield a positive effect such as gaining coins or additional cards or a negative effect such as losing some of your coins or discarding cards from your hand.  It is best to be the first to complete a task and gain a reward spot than to be the last to complete and get a negative consequence.  Remember, it only takes 5 completed tasks to win.

  3. In the Online Casino Österreich, players roll the dice and then visit different areas on the board. Some are properties, some are railroads and some are special spaces, whereby players may pick up cards, or, sadly, get sent to jail. It's popular for good reason, as it offers an ideal blend of excellent graphics, fun sound effects and roulette action which is just so authentic and enjoyable https://online-casino-osterreich.at!
