Each one is worth its value, the round wild is 20 points, and the Aces are 50 points, so make sure to lay them down as soon as possible. The Joker is always a wild card. In addition, there are rotating wild cards that change every round. Wild cards rotate based on the number of cards dealt that round: Start your turn as normal, then lay down your entire hand in books and/or runs on the table in front of you before discarding your last card. You can only use the number of cards you were dealt to make your books and/or runs. You must have one card left to discard. Your discard can be a playable card .

If you have a wild card in your hand that you can't use - you are allowed to discard it. This will save you points but may help the next player. Runs: A run consists of a sequence of three or more consecutive cards of the same suit. For example: We play cards with several different groups of friends and family. With some, I never pull stuff like this, but with others, I know we’re competitive enough that a strat like this is just a part of the game. The player to the dealer’s left goes first; before attempting to make runs/books take either a card from the draw pile or the top card from the discard pile. Then you can play any runs or books you have. You must have at least one card left in your hand to discard at the end of the round.Place the remaining cards in the center of the table to make the draw pile and flip over the top card to start the discard pile. Wild Card: Wild cards can substitute for any card in a book or run. The card value serving as the wild card for a particular round changes. Game Setup Players play 11 hands/rounds. In each round, players attempt to play all their cards by making card combinations. Setting Up Five Crowns Card Game Each round, the number of cards dealt increases by one. In the second round deal 4 cards, in the third round deal 5 cards and so on until the last round when each player is dealt 13 cards.

Once one player goes all out (which means they have played all their cards, minus the one they need to discard), all other players will only have one more turn before the end of the round. After that, any cards not discarded will be added to your total. The winner is the player with the fewest points at the end of all 11 rounds. Though not part of the official rules I have seen, our “house rule” is that in case of a tie, the winner is the player who went out the most number of hands. Tips Play continues until one player lays out all of their cards. At that point, each other player has one more turn in which to empty their hand. For example, if you’re waiting for one of two cards for a run and you see the player across from dumping a bunch of them, it may be time to switch strategy.A point or two here or there can add up and make all the difference in the world. #6 Replace Wilds When Possible Just like in Rummy, cards can only be removed from your hand in either a book or a run. Books are three (or more) matching cards; the suit doesn’t matter as long as the number is the same. Runs, on the other hand, are a numerical sequence of cards of the same suit. If you’re getting down to the end or someone has gone out, don’t just throw any face card down to lower your count. Now, this is where things get different! While some of the cards might seem familiar, others will be entirely new to people. Five Crowns, as the name implies, uses five different suits.

Jokers are always wild. The additional wild cards for each pile are different. They are based on the number of cards each pile was dealt. For example, the first pile has 3 cards, so 3s are wild for that pile. I’m not going to share this with the people, but I will share this Five Crowns winning strategy with you!On each player’s turn, they may either add the top card of the draw or the discard pile to their hand.

Going Out: Start your turn as normal, then lay down your entire hand in books and/or runs on the table in front of you before discarding your last card. I don’t know about you, but 8 missing cards for a set sounds better than 4 missing cards of a run. #3 Keep Nearby But Disconnected Run Cards Keep your options open. You can come from behind even in the last round; hence the slogan, The game isn't over 'til the Kings go wild! The wilds and changing rounds make the game a bit faster and more interesting to some people than the standard rummy game.You can’t double-count cards for books at the end, but holding this at the beginning of a round is a smart idea to help you find matching cards. Game Play Rules Of Five Crowns Once the points have been totaled, all cards are shuffled and the next hand is dealt. Remember: the number of cards in hand increases by one each round. Scoring a Hand The goal for each player is to play out their hand by creating sets or runs. A set or run must contain at least three cards. This may seem really obvious, but a lot of people subconsciously “write off” the card they’re using the wild for.
