Phase 10 lost rules?
No problem, you can download the phase 10 rules free of charge from us:
All players are dealt 10 cards. The remaining cards are placed face down on the table as a pile and the top one is turned over to a discard pile. The first player draws a card from the pile or takes the top card from the discard pile. So everyone tries to collect the card combination of the required phase. At the end of your turn you put a card on the discard pile.
Now it continues clockwise. Depending on the phases you need different combinations of cards. If you have the first phase in hand, you put the cards face up on the table in front of you. Each further phase is now applied to this. A player can only move on to the next phase when the current phase has been completed. The winner is the one who has finished all 10 phases first. The joker can be created for any card. If you have a “skip” card and play it, the next player must skip a round.
