Game board Instructions for Sequence

Sequence – A "must have" family game

Sequence boxSequence is easily the most played game in our family board game collection.
So I guess it almost goes without saying that it’s also one of our most highly rated family games.

Can the whole family enjoy Sequence?

Absolutely! It’s perfect for family game time.
Here are just a few reasons why we love Sequence:
  • Simple and easy for everyone to play
  • Playing in teams heightens the anticipation and fun
  • Plenty of luck makes it great for all ages to join in
  • Scales fantastically and plays equally well with a wide number of players
  • Can still keep you on your toes
  • The end is always close
  • Easy to chat with others while playing

Sequence up closeIs there really strategy involved in Sequence?

Some may say that there isn’t any strategy in Sequence. But we disagree. Sure you can’t control what cards you draw. But the trick is making the most of the cards you do have. And with two spaces on the board for each card, you do need to choose your position wisely.

Now that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been beaten by a youngster just randomly throwing down cards. But that’s very rare. Of course, it’s also very funny when it happens. Their eyes light up like crazy as if they planned it that way the whole time.

Sequence boardHow many people can play Sequence?
While the game rules say it can be played with 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, or 12 we haven’t held back from playing with even more. As long as the number of players is divisible by 2 or 3, you can split into even teams. And it’s the whole team aspect that makes it such a fun game.

Since you already have to deal with the luck of the draw on what cards you get, adding a teammate heightens the luck and anticipation of what’s to come even more. As the game progresses, the anticipation continues to build as well. While hoping to get just the right card to complete a sequence you’re also nervously hoping that your opponents don’t block you, or worse, remove one of your pieces.

And the more players there are, the longer you sit anticipating that nothing bad happens before your next turn. But that’s what makes it so fun.

How does Sequence score on the “Let’s Play Again” meter?
Sequence scores super high on our “Let’s Play Again” meter. Once we get started playing a game of Sequence, we’ll always play multiple games. It may be just a simple game, but that’s why it’s so accessible for everyone to play.

We’ve played for hours on end for a few reasons. The first is that inevitably when a game ends, the non-winning team/s are close to winning as well. And who can sit still and not call out for a rematch? The second reason is that Sequence lends itself well to visiting while playing. So it’s perfect for family gatherings when you’re just sitting around the table taking it easy.

Sequence is also a game that people can leave or join throughout the night. If someone wants to join in or someone has had enough, it’s easy enough to rearrange the teams for the next game and keep rolling right along.

So This Is Christmas....

"... So here under the tree, dazzling and glossy in sateen bows and velvet ribbons are the gifts of this president:
Sparkle-laden paper wrapped around a box of Fear. The plastic paranoia sealed package contains all the colors of Fear from brown to yellow to pink and purple. A small booklet of instructions is included on how to apply Fear to every situation and person not "one of us," and how to brush on racism, homophobia and bigotry with the mascara of mendacity.
A flag-covered box of brightly painted brittle toy soldiers and game board, plus interchangeable body parts for when they get broken from too much rough play. Each toy soldier is hand-painted, unnumbered and anatomically neutered to withstand everything but real war. Families not included.
There is...
