  7. Five Crowns

    All details for the board game Five Crowns and similar games

    Five Crowns offers a unique twist on the classic rummy game, incorporating a five-suited deck and progressively challenging gameplay. Players engage in a set collection game, similar to traditional rummy, where the goal is to create melds of three or more cards, either in runs of the same suit or groups of the same rank. The innovative twist lies in the increasing number of cards required to meld, starting with three cards in the first hand and culminating with thirteen cards by the final, eleventh hand.
