Day 42 - Slide 5
Designed by Wolfgang Kramer
Slide 5 is based on its European counterpart called 6 Nimmt. I love this card game! Ok, the first thing that I really enjoy about this game is the pure range of players you can play with; the game is made for 2-10 players. It is hard to find a game that plays so well with such a wide range. The game can be understood very quickly and the actual game only takes about 30 minutes to play. The game has luck, strategy, and is very unpredictable at times.
Strap on your skis and grab your scarf! Skiing is a fun past time, but beware of avalanches - they can be deadly. Players choose numbered cards from their hands and place them face down in front of them. The players then flip over their cards simultaneously and place them on the "hills." If you are the player that places the 6th card in a row, you just created an avalanche trapping skiers in the snow and adding unwanted points to your name. The winner is the player with the least amount of points after 5 rounds. Simple game that is very exciting and fun to play with a ski lift full of people or a small bus full and that is How Lou Sees It.
