The objective of this intructable is to teach you an exciting and interesting card game called 2500. This game is similar to other card games such as rummy, Phase 10, and hands and feet. It is suitable for any age that knows basic card game skills and terminology. For example of age ranges, I have had an 8 year old cousin to a 97 year old great grandma who play. Although it may take a couple of times of playing to understand and learn the game, it can be a great way to interact with friends and family. Plus, if you run into any questions you can always come back to this page and look at what to do next. I hope you enjoy this instructable and have a fun time learning 2500!
The ultimate goal of the game is to reach 2500 points the quickest. The goal of each hand (round) is to accumulate as many points as possible. This can be accomplished by laying down three cards of one kind or two cards of one kind and a wild. For example, a player would need three aces or two aces and a wild to lay down. Having three wilds does not count as a condition to lay down.
Step 1: What you will need:
2. Two decks of cards (for 2-6 players, if you have more than that I would suggest adding another deck)
3. Paper to keep score on
4. Writing utensil (pen, pencil, or marker)
Optional: A calculator if you do not like to calculate scores in your head.
