What's Wild?! is a great new game for families and kids. It's a rummy-based card game safari for 2-7 players ages 7 and up. Collect hands full of herds and caravans over the course of 10 rounds of play and be the player with the least amount of points at the end to win! But be careful, the wild card may change when you least expect it, and you'll be left to ask, "What's Wild?"
The idea of What's Wild?! is simpleat its core, it is essentially a sophisticated rummy game. But the clever design and the excitement of the "Chameleon Card" make What's Wild?! irresistibly fun and wonderfully addictive.
Instead of cards featuring suits, the game's cards are made up of four different animal skinsalligator, cheetah, peacock, and zebra. And to further the "Wild" theme of the game, when a player's hand allows him or her to end a round of play, he or she must declare, "I'm going wild!"
A complete game of What's Wild?! includes 10 rounds. Each player receives three cards to begin the first round, and by the final round, each player is holding 12 cards in his or her hand. Players collect appropriately-named "herds" and "caravans"called "books" and "runs" in traditional rummy games throughout each round, until they are able to "Go Wild," or end the round.
Where the game truly separates itself from all others is the inclusion of the card that changes the Wild Card throughout the game, creatively named the "Chameleon Card." The four Chameleon Cards give the game a sort of "Old Maid" feel, in that if the card is in a player's hand when another player "Goes Wild," the player holding the Chameleon Card is awarded the maximum amount of points. In a game in which the low score wins, players must carefully weigh their options for playing Chameleon Cards when holding one. Playing the card too early may allow the Wild Card to be changed in later turns, but holding on to it too long may lead to an avalanche of points. The Chameleon Card makes each round of every game of What's Wild?! new, exciting, and completely unpredictable.
