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:

1. People who are going to play the game with you
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. 
Also if u have sets laid down and draw a wild card can u lay it on any sets already played?
I mean if I have a set and no discard does play continue or do I miss those points till I have a discard
What if u r able to play and have no discard, does play go on around till u can?
In playing the game of 2500, we were told that you could take cards from the discard pile as long as you had two naturals in your hand to make a set. Is this true? They also said that you can go back as far in the discard pile as you needed to to retrieve the card you wanted as long as you took all other cards before and including the card you need. We were also told that you could take your card from either the deck or the discard pile.and, If taking the top card from the discard pile would you still need to have a natural of two in your hand? We're confused. Can anyone clarify?
<p>Yes, you have to have 2 naturals in your hand to be able to take the top card of the discard pile, However, if that top card is a wild card, you have to have two other wild cards and three sets of pairs in your hand to take that card. If there is a card anywhere underneath that wild card in the discard pile that matches the pair in your hand, then you would go down to that card in the discard pile and take it along with any other ones that are on top of the one(s) you need. For example, you have two jacks in your hand and you know there is a third jack in the discard pile, You take all the cards on top of that pile right down to the jack, including the jack. You only need two cards to match the one you are retrieving from the discard pile, You do not have to have a matching card to take a card from the deck. That pile is turned upside down so that you can't see what's in it. You are taking a chance of getting a card you want, or not. You also don't have to discard if you can go out by playing all the cards in your hand. I hope this helps.</p>
<p>The above comments I just added are according to the way I was taught. It seems that the instructions on this site are different from how I was taught. Maybe there are different variations of how this game is played. Either that,or I was taught incorrectly, or the instructions on this site are incorrect. </p>
