2011 Winner Preferred Choice Award from Creative Toy Awards.

Flip Six Card Game was chosen as one of the Top 20 Kid Tested Toys of 2011 by Get the Noise on Toys on Yummy Mummy Club.

    An exciting new draw and discard game that requires a little risk-taking, because sometimes the swap involves a face down card. Our testers loved the thrill of turning over the unknown card to see if they made a good trade.

    Awesome card game for all ages--I have 11 grandchildren--I kept 6 of them entertained for hours with this game. they want to play it all the time. Love it because it is quick and several age groups can play.

    —Sandy Grabowski, Amazon customer


    This game involves just enough strategy to keep it interesting and not just a game of fate, yet is simple enough that the youngest is not at a huge disadvantage. Our kids, 6 and 8 both enjoyed it and each got a chance to win a round which keeps it fun for them.

    All players are dealt 6 cards which are put face-down in two rows. One card from each row may be turned over but the rest of your hand is a mystery. On their turn, each player takes a card from the draw pile or the discard pile. They then must decide if they switch it for one of their face up cards or a face down card. The object being to get rid of your high-number cards so that, at the end of the round, they have the lowest possible score. But remember, many of the cards are face down so you don't know if you're making a good trade or not. A round ends when all players cards are face up. The game is designed to be played in 10 rounds, the lowest score at the end of 10 rounds wins. Many times we didn't make it to 10 rounds, but enjoyed the game none-the-less. At any time, a player may call for the end of a round early if they think they have the lowest score. If they do, great, if they don't...their score gets DOUBLED so be careful! And drawing a matching card to one in your hand is a special draw because it allows you to permanently discard cards from your hand, decreasing the number of cards in your hand and giving you an advantage at scoring time.

    All in all, a fun game that helps increase counting skills and introduces negative numbers too. The instructions could have been clearer but were finally deciphered enough to enjoy the game fully. Highly recommended and a great travel game too.
