Ligretto Blue BoxLigretto is a simple but furiously fast game where players build stacks of cards in the middle of the table by simultaneously throwing out their cards in numeric order. Just released by Playroom Entertainment, Ligretto is not only capable of being played with up to 12 people, I daresay it’s better the more people involved. When playing cards, all stacks must start with the number 1 card, but a player can place his card on top of anyone’s stack. More players means a more frantic game. The potential for pushing and shoving aside, a fun game I think especially for the kids, where speed is always a welcome game element.

The game is sold in three boxes, each with cards to accommodate four players. You can combine all three boxes (red, blue, and green) for a chaotic game with up to 12.
