Great game for all ages!

I first played this game when I was 5 years old with an elderly neighbor. It still is one of my favorite games 23 years later. Great game for all ages! A true classic!

Great Game for Young & Old!

Skip-Bo is a lot of fun! It is easy to teach and you can vary the play to make the game shorter or longer. Kids and adults both enjoy it! We have a coffee club that plays every Tuesday & Thursday after we get the kids off to school. It's great -- we can still gossip and snack while playing!!

One of the best card games
September 26, 2004
I think this is one of the best card games ever made. I have enjoyed it since I was a youngster, and as time passes, it only gets better. There's a certain amount of random chance combined with a lot of weird strategy, which makes the game pretty balanced. I can never tell how long a game is going to take until it's over, another unusual feature. Overall, this game is best for social occassions, as it's one of those that once you're used to the rules, it's very easy to relax, play, and talk about other things, while at the same time enjoying a true classic.

Average game

If you are looking for a basic card game that doesn't require too much thought then skip-bo is the way to go. It might be a good game to introduce young people to cards. I find myself fighting for us to play something interesting and strategic like Lost Cities ahead of Skip-Bo, but I do have family members that like it.

Seriously this game is really really boring!!! I had to do a game review in my class and this was the WORST out of a ll of them. I recommend NOT to buy this horrible game. It's a total waste of time AND money!
