This page is part of the section of the web site. It is a collection of variations of the proprietary card game, . Phase 10 is a commercial version of the traditional card game , but while Contract Rummy is played with standard playing-cards, Phase 10 uses special cards and has a somewhat different sequence of contracts.
Phase 10 +10 is played with a deck of Phase 10 cards and played the same way as the proprietary game except that the 10th phase only marks the half way point! After the 10th phase there are 10 more and here they are:
Like many of the other reviewers I use phase 10 as one of my intro games for newcomers to gaming. I have played it with my grandchildren when they were 8 and slightly under and two of my best fiends who are 78 & 79 (Ok I lied about the 80).
Whether you're entertaining guests or just passing time, you're sure to get addicted to Phase 10 once you learn the rules of the game. Phase 10 is a fun and easy to learn rummy type game. If you have never played before or you just want to brush up on the rules, it’s easy enough to get a game going quickly.
