Skipbo the ultimate sequencing card game
Skip-Bo is the ultimate sequencing card game from the makers of UNO! Players use skill and strategy to create stacks of sequentially numbered, ascending cards (2,3,4…) until they have no more left to play. Once everyone is dealt their own personal stockpile of cards, play begins by drawing from a central pile and building up to four “build” piles.
The Skip-Bo “wild” cards break up static situations and may be played as any number. Use these cards wisely, for they can really help you beat your opponents! The first player to deplete all of his or her Skip-Bo stockpile cards is the winner! Includes 162 cards and instructions. Colours and decorations may vary.

Can your kids count? My 5 year old son absolutely loves card games like UNO. And he really has a knack for numbers so Skipbo is the perfect game for him. When I brought out the game I heard “yes!!’ another card game!
The game is really accessible as anyone that can count up to twelve shouldn’t have any trouble playing the game. You can have some fun playing the game if you don’t mind a game that mostly revolves around mindless fun. And it is easy to play. You can end up with a quick handed game or one that takes a while.
It is more or less a luck game. Kids, as my son proved, will love it. If your kids know their numbers and can recognise them they will be able to play. It is packaged so you can fit it in your bag. I am definitely taking it with me on holiday this year for some family game nights!
It is a pretty entertaining game, makes the kids think and doesn’t matter if you’re older, you can spend hours playing it. Let’s say it’s a new and maybe funnier version of the solitaire. This is an amazing addition to our game collection! We would recommend this very highly to any family, but especially to homeschooling families who use play as learning.
