Secretly pick a card from your hand, then play it on one of four rows following two rules: your card must be higher than the last card in a row, and played next to the last card that's closest in number. If you play the sixth card, you take that row and all the points in it. That's when the game earns its name, as you're forced to "take five" cards.
Take a Number is a stand-alone game with advanced rules that builds on the basic edition to create an extreme “take” experience: the number of cards in each row varies, you can create your own row, and add cards back into your hand.
