Five Crowns is a fast-paced twist on the old favorite, Rummy. With a unique 116 card double deck that boasts 5 suits and no aces or twos, players enjoy an endless number of ways to arrange their hands into "runs" and "books." Put your skills of strategy to the test as you try for combinations, aiming to be the first player to go out. Then see who can play their cards right to get out quick and cut their losses. The player with the least points at the end of the game wins! Complete with instructions for solo play and group play, Five Crowns is a fun game of strategy and sequence that will have teens playing deep into the night. (Set Enterprises, $9.50)
