Different ways to play Ready, Set, EiGO! Card game.
This is the standard version of the game as described in the instruction manual. Cards are shuffled, and each player is dealt 5 picture cards. Players take time to look at all their picture cards (if anyone doesn't know how to read a card they may ask the group for clarification). The description cards are placed in the middle of all the players so that everyone can reach them easily. Once players are ready the person who dealt then picks up the first description card and reads it out loud. The first person to put down a good matching picture card from their hand AND say it out loud wins. The player must put the card down and not touch it. If the player still has their card in their hand when they read it then it doesn't count. It must be placed down on the table and read.
Please see the instruction manual for more specific details about the game, and how to play the standard version.
*You can start with up to 7 picture cards per person if you want.
TWO PLAYER 50/50
If you are looking for a fun way to play with just two players, then TWO PLAYER 50/50 is perfect!
The normal rules apply but instead of 5 picture cards, both players split all the pictures equally (50/50) into piles.
When a description card is drawn and read the players can look through the top-facing cards in their piles to try and find a match. ONLY THE TOP FACING CARDS. Once you have gone through all the picture cards then you flip the pile over and repeat using the other side.
-When a PASS PARTY! card is drawn the players exchange their entire pile of cards with each other. (You can reshuffle your pile if you want. DO NOT SHUFFLE ALL THE PICTURE CARDS TOGETHER)
-When a LOCKDOWN card is drawn the player who drew can't put down a card on the next draw.
-When a player successfully matches one of their picture cards with a DESCRIPTION card then the player takes the DESCRIPTION card as a point. The first player to get 6 Description cards wins!
