Dutch Blitz is a fast-paced, family-friendly card game that has been around since the early 1900s. It is a game that is easy to learn but difficult to master, and it is enjoyed by players of all ages and skill levels.
How to Play Dutch Blitz
The game is played with a special deck of cards that has four different colors: red, blue, green, and yellow. Each color has its own set of cards numbered from 1 to 10, and there are also special cards called “blitz” cards that can be used to score extra points.
At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt a certain number of cards depending on the number of players. The remaining cards are placed in the center of the table to form the “blitz pile.”
The object of the game is to get rid of all of your cards as quickly as possible by playing them onto one of four “post piles” in the center of the table. Players can only play cards onto a post pile if the card they are playing is the next number in sequence and is the same color as the top card of the pile.
Players can also play cards onto their own “wood piles” which are located in front of them. The wood piles are started with a “1” card of each color, and players can add to them as long as they are the next number in sequence and the same color as the top card on the pile.
The Blitz Pile
The blitz pile is a special pile of cards that can be used to score extra points. To play a card from the blitz pile, a player must first play a card from their wood pile or one of the post piles. Once a player has played a card, they can then play any number of cards from the blitz pile onto their wood pile or post piles.
Players can also play cards from the blitz pile onto their opponent’s post piles, which can be used to slow them down and give the player an advantage.
Points are scored by playing cards onto the post piles and by playing cards from the blitz pile. The first player to get rid of all of their cards ends the round, and the other players score penalty points for any cards remaining in their wood piles or post piles.
The game is played over a series of rounds, and the player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner.
Dutch Blitz is a fun and exciting card game that is perfect for family game night or for playing with friends. It is easy to learn but difficult to master, and it provides hours of entertainment for players of all ages and skill levels.
