Hi Lo Flip

£15.99

Fortunes will flip in this wild game of strategy and chance! Play number cards to a centre pile, following the direction on the Hi-Lo chip.

If you get stuck, flip the chip for a chance to reverse the order and save your turn. But if you wind up without a move, the points go to your opponent. Be the first player out of cards and Lo! You end the game on a Hi!

What’s in the box?

  • 100 cards
  • 1 Hi Lo chip

How to play:

On your turn, look at the Hi-Lo chip. If “Hi” is face-up, you must play a card to the discard pile that’s higher than the current top card of the pile. If “Lo” is face-up, then you must play a lower card.

You must play a card if possible, but if not then flip the Hi-Lo chip. If the chip lands on the opposite side, play a card from your hand and end your turn. If it lands on the same side as before, draw the top card of the draw pile and play it if possible. If you’re still unable to play a card, you’ll instead make a “reset” play. To make a reset play, first, the player who most recently played a card collects all the cards in the discard pile.

Special Card Abilities:

  • Cards ending in “1”: Playing one of these cards causes the next player to draw 1 card and immediately skip their turn.
  • Cards ending in “2”: When you play a card ending in 2, you must immediately play a second card, unless it was your final card.
  • Cards ending in “0”: These cards are each worth 10 points when scoring

Ending the round: The round ends when one player has discarded all the cards in their hand. That player wins all of the cards in the current discard pile and receives a bonus of 10 points for going out. All players count the cards they collected and score 10 points for each card ending in “0”, and 1 point each for all other cards. Each player announces their total for the scorekeeper to tally.

The game ends once any player has accumulated at least 75 points at the end of a round. Whoever has the highest score is the winner.

Bonus!

Hi Lo Flip reinforces probability and strategic thinking skills.
