Phase 10 Rules

Players are dealt 10 cards to start the game, and each player in turn draws one card from either the deck or the discard pile. After drawing a card, the player attempts to make one of the following hards, in turn:

  1. 2 sets of 3
  2. 1 set of 3 and 1 run of 4
  3. 1 set of 4 and 1 run of 4
  4. 1 run of 7
  5. 1 run of 8
  6. 1 run of 9
  7. 2 sets of 4
  8. 7 cards of one color
  9. 1 set of 5 and set of 2
  10. 1 set of 5 and 1 set of 3

If the hand can be made, the player lays it down, face-up, on the table. At the end of the turn, the player must place a card on the discard pile. Skip cards, wild cards, and more make this game fun and entertaining for the entire family.

Note: Phase 10 is a commercial game based off the traditional game known as Contract Rummy.
