Generation upon generation have enjoyed Flinch since it was first introduced back in 1903.
Now it's back, and better than ever, bringing with it fond memories of great fun. All you have to do to win is get rid of the 10 cards in your Stockpile. You'll do this by playing them in numerical sequence -- whenever possible -- onto the Play Piles in the center of the table. Sounds simple, doesn't it?
Or is it?
Also includes rules for five great Flinch variations, including Flinch 2000 -- a "zestier" way to play Flinch with new "wild" cards, a solitaire game and a special version just for kids. Introduce Flinch -- a beloved card game classic -- to your family today.
OK, this review is for 2 games. Since they are virtually identical my review for Flinch is the same as my review for Skip-Bo. I grew up playing Skip-Bo, and even then didn't think it was the greatest. Now I'm pretty sure I hate it and its predecessor, Flinch.
The issue I take with these games is the huge luck factor involved. Basically it's all luck of the deal. If you get high cards on your pile, then you could take too long to get rid of them. If the player before you has the right cards to block you, you may never be able to play your card.
Flinch & Skip-Bo add to the list of games that are easy to play regardless of age, so that is one plus side. It's just not that much fun for the adults playing along.
If you like luck-based games, then Flinch is a good one for you. If you need another game to play with the kids, then Flinch is a decent choice. If you are looking for a good game to play with the other adults in your game group, this is not the way to go.
