The great thing about Phase 10 are the objectives that you play to achieve. This means that not all players are trying to do the same, which makes the game much more interesting than other rummy variants.
This game can take FOREVER but we love it! Complete all ten phases to win... but if you don't complete a phase when everyone else does... you must keep attempting that phase until you DO complete it... even if everyone else has continued on. Easy to understand... but the difficulty lies in having the right cards dealt to you... luck of the draw!
Great game takes a few minutes to explain but fun to play till you get stuck on a level and everyone catches up to you. Great for a family game night uses collecting numbers/colors and colecting runs of sequential cards.
