Five Crowns® is a card game for the whole family. It has original game play, but uses skills that you have obtained from playing your old favourites like Hearts, Spades and Rummy. Because Five Crowns has five Royal Families -- the Stars, the Clubs, the Hearts, the Spades and the Diamonds -- yes, five suits in the old usage, it allows a more equal chance of making a book or a run, effectively giving each player more possibilities to readjust their hand so as to go out. The play starts with three cards and the 3's are wild; the next hand has four cards and the 4's are wild.... working up to the last hand when the Kings are wild. Each of the Royal Families is portrayed in original art and has its own colors. Five Crowns® is a fast paced, ingenious new game in eleven rounds.

For 2 - 7 players.

Looking for a fun game for the entire family? Then feast your eyes on Spot It! This award-winning card game is a simple, fast-paced game that everyone ages 6 to 106 can see eye to eye on.

There are several ways to play Spot It! but the strategy is the same: be the first player to “spot” one of the eight illustrated symbols on your card to the matching symbol on another card. Sounds simple, right? But there is more to this game than meets the eye when you consider that there is only one match for the symbol you are searching for on one of the remaining 54 playing cards. And while the matching symbols are the same colour and shape, they may be different sizes. You’ll be surprised at how the variety of images on these cards will challenge your eyes. And because Spot It! requires keen visual perception skills and quick reflexes, this creates a level playing field across all ages. So watch out for those younger players as they set their sights on the win. With lively action and endless fun, your family will only have eyes for Spot It!

Contains 55 round picture cards and illustrated instructions in a small, portable storage tin.

For 2 - 8 players.
