Product Description

Based on the European card game sensation 6 Nimmt, Slide 5 is a quick-to-learn card game of luck and strategy.

Players arrange their cards on the playing surface building "hills". Once a hill gets cards high, the 6th card will cause an avalanche and that player must take all of the cards in that row, leaving the 6th card to start a new hill.

With all players revealing the cards they wish to play at the same time, there's always unpredictable fun and dilemma at every turn!

Even more fun with more people
June 19, 2006

We had been playing this game for a few months, with just 2 players. But this last week, we got together with family and played with 4, 5, and even more (I think 8) players. It is so much better with more people. That is where this game really shines. We didn't even play anything else, but just kept playing this one. There is strategy, but it is quite a challenge to find out what it is. The best thing is that we could just play and just have fun. Wonderful game. Even better than we had realized at first.

Very fun game to play
March 10, 2006

we have liked other card games, such as phase 10, and wizard, but this new one has jumped right into our list of favorites.

it is a simple game to learn, and has more strategy than we thought at first. you have to start to think ahead and not get caught. it is different than other games, and kind of a new way to think.

it is also fun to have the hurricane info on the cards, something to look at if you get bored, which you probably won't do.

lots of fun, and a good one to add to your game pile! Have fun!

Unique gameplay is a lot of fun
February 03, 2006
Category 5 is a game I picked up with my Christmas gift certificates strictly because of the positive reviews here on Funagain. It's always been my philosophy to expect the worst so that you can be pleasantly suprised, so I tried to disregard the good reviews and not expect too much from this game.

Well, I don't think it would have mattered. I love the way Category 5 plays. It's simple, but challenging at the same time. By that I mean that the rules are simple to grasp, but the strategy can take some time to develop. Once you realize what you are doing this game flows quite nicely.

I am very excited for when I can try Category 5 with more players, as I know the strategy will become even more challenging. I don't have any other card games that play quite like this and that uniqueness adds a lot to the quality of the game.

I have read some reviews here that talk about how neat the hurricane theme is. Frankly, that just disappears to me when I'm playing. The theme feels superficial and unnecessary. But if you are interested in reading hurricane names, past and present, perhaps that's an additional selling feature for you.

I would highly recommend Category 5 to anyone who is thinking about it. The price is reasonable, and the quality of the game is top notch. I think I will enjoy this game for years to come.
