How Do You Play the Swap Card Game?

Swap is a card game for two to ten players and is very similar to the game Uno. The goal is to be the first player to get rid of all your cards. When it is your turn, you can either play one of your cards, if it has the right color, or use a special card and change the course of the game.

First, shuffle and deal ten cards to each player. Place the rest of the cards face down in a pile on the middle of the table, forming the draw pile. Turn over the top card, and put it face up next to the draw pile, creating the discard pile. If this card is a swap card, you decide which color kicks off the game. Otherwise, the color of the top card applies, even if it is a special card. The player to your left starts the game by playing a card which matches the color of the top card in the discard pile, or using a special card.

There are four types of special cards: swap, super swap, slap and switch color cards. With a swap card, you can switch your hand with the hand of any player you choose, and you can also designate a color of your choosing for the discard pile. With a super swap card, every player switches hands with the one next to him, and you can choose in which direction the switch goes. A change color card allows you to change the color in play. If you play a slap card, all other player must immediately slap their hands on the discard pile. The last player to slap must draw a card from your hand.

The first player who plays all his cards is the winner.
