    This fun card game is simple to learn and easy to play – and as an added bonus, kids will become more familiar and comfortable with money. Game play is similar to Uno, with players trying to discard cards in their hands by matching either the color or money amount on the previously played card. Each player is dealt 7 cards and the rest of the deck becomes the draw pile, with one card overturned to start the discard pile. The deck is composed of 110 cards, with cards featuring all coin types (from pennies to half dollars), $1.00 cards, wild cards, loose change cards (with varying amounts of odd change), tax collection cards, and bank withdrawal cards. Play goes clockwise, each player trying to be the first to empty their hand. You can match the money amount, either by playing the same coin or by announcing "Exact Change" and playing several cards that add up to the previously played card, or you can match the color. If you cannot discard, you must draw cards until you can play. Wild cards can be anything, but you must announce the color and amount when you play them. Tax collection cards force all other players to draw one card from the draw deck, and bank withdrawal cards forces an opponent of your choice to randomly draw a card from your hand. When one player runs out of cards, the round is over and they pick another player's hand, total the cards remaining and this becomes the balance in the bank account of the player who went out. The first player to "save" $2.00 is the winner. 2-6 players. ~ Megan

    Simple and quick to play, this game fast became a favorite at our house! Combining elements of Uno and "slapping" card games, there's something for everyone to enjoy - especially young players. To begin, everyone is dealt ten cards which they can pick up, look at, and organize however they like. Cards are either plain but colored (purple, blue, green, or red); colored and display either "Super Swap," "Switch Color," or "Slap!" directions; or are "wild" and contain "Swap" directions. All remaining cards are placed face-down in a draw pile, and one card is placed face up to make a discard pile. The first player must lay down a card of the same color as the card in the discard pile, either a plain color card, a special colored direction card, or a wild "Swap." If a player plays a "Swap," they must trade their hand with another player, but if a "Super Swap" is played, then all players switch hands with each other. If a "Slap" card is played, all players must slap the discard pile, and the last player to slap has to take a card from the player who played the "Slap" card. Swap! is unique from other card games in that whole hands of cards are constantly being traded, which means that each player's strategy must keep changing with the cards as well!

     This simple game is easy to learn and requires basic math skills, some strategy, and maybe just a little luck. Each player is dealt four cards, and a "Tip Top" card is uncovered. Each turn, every player must lay down a new card on the pile begun on the "Tip Top" card, add the number on his or her card to the current total, and announce it to the other players. Depending on the cards, players may also be able to subtract from the total, multiply the total, change the direction of play, or even choose a new "Tip Top" card to play on that round. If players cannot play a card without exceeding the "Tip Top" total number, they must give up one of their four chips and is out of that round. The next round, they are dealt one card less and must play their card after the other players have gone. Play continues until only one player is left - the winner! This game reminds me of Uno combined with math-type card games, but looks fast-paced and fun. - Jess

    The classic family game but with a fun twist! Before the game, choose a card to determine the theme of dares each card has 16 different dares. There's Daredevil (Stand on 1 foot until your next turn), Family (Talk like Mom or Dad until your next turn), Show-Off (Do a runway model walk across the room), or House Rules (blank to create your own rules). Game play starts like standard Uno, but instead of standard draw cards, players will have the choice between drawing the extra cards OR doing the dare as designated on the dare theme card. Be careful though! If players forget to keep up an act that lasts until their next turn (such as acting like a dog or talking like a sportscaster), they must draw two cards. Game play continues as normal until someone runs out of cards. Set includes 112 cards.

    Arrrrrr ye ready to push yer luck out on the high seas, sonny? In this easy-to-learn pirate-themed card game of luck and loss, the object is to collect cards from 10 different suits and get the highest score. Each card has a “suit” and a point value. During each round, players flip over cards from the draw pile until they choose to stop and collect them—but if they reveal two cards with a matching suit, they go bust and discard all cards in the playing area!

    While this can make for a pretty dicey card game by itself, there’s a catch: each of the 10 different suits has a unique “suit ability” which activates whenever the card is revealed. These may allow you to steal or destroy other players’ hard-earned cards, or even force you to play several extra cards without a chance to stop!

    Once the draw pile is depleted, all players count up their highest-value cards from each suit and the player with the most points wins. To spice things up, there are special character cards (which influence certain suit abilities and even other players!) and Game Variants, which change how the game is played. If you’re looking for an easy card game with a little more pizazz than Uno, a fun family game people of all ages can enjoy, or even a simple party game, Dead Man’s Draw is a great choice. Just be warned—thar be no safe havens in these treacherous waters! 10-15 minutes. For 2-4 players.

    (Note: one of the character cards, Madame Margot, is portrayed wearing a somewhat revealing dress. If deemed inappropriate, feel free to dress the character more modestly via permanent marker.
