The object is to shoot the lowest score. After nine holes, the lowest score wins. Card values range from -5 (hole-in-one) to 12 (out of bounds). Golfers and non-golfers alike enjoy Play Nine.
Game play: Players are dealt 8 game cards each with a discard pile as well as a draw pile at the center of the table. Players then without looking separate their 8 cards into 2 rows of 4. They each then flip two cards over. Moving forward each player has an option whether to replace one of their flipped or face down cards with a card from the draw pile or the discard pile. If they do not like the card from either the draw pile or the discard pile, the player may choose to flip one of their face down cards for their turn. Play continues until a player has one card left. At this point, everyone has one hand left until the end of the game. When someone has all 8 cards shown players tally up their totals at the top of the cards and record them into the score card. That was round one!
The game takes about 20 minutes to 1 hour to play depending on number of players. The combination of strategy and luck-of-the-draw keeps the fun and challenge alive down to the last hole. Play Nine, the card game of golf, is easy to learn and fun to play so – Let’s Play Nine!
