Crazy Jacks Card Game Rules


Crazy Jacks is a simple card game that involves a group of players racing to discard all their cards. Sometimes referred to as Crazy Eights, Switch, Swedish Rummy or Uno, the Crazy Jacks game involves minimal equipment.

The Basics

  • Crazy Jacks is played by two to four people. The only equipment you need is a standard deck of 52 playing cards. If you play the game with more than four people, add another deck of cards. The object of the game is to be the first to get rid of your cards.

How To Play

  • After shuffling the deck, deal cards face-down one at a time to each player. If two people are playing, each player receives seven cards. If more than two people are playing, each player receives five cards. The remaining cards are placed face-down in the center of the table and become the draw pile. The top card of the draw pile is turned face-up and placed next to the draw pile. The face-up card is the beginning of the discard pile. If the card is a Jack, place it back into a random place in the draw pile and turn over the next card.

    The player to the left of the dealer plays first. The player must place a card from his hand that matches the first card of the discard pile in suit or rank. For example, if the card in the discard pile is the deuce of hearts, the player can play any deuce or heart. If the player does not have a card that matches the card in the discard pile, the player must take cards one by one from the draw pile until he draws a playable card. Play then continues to the left.

    All Jacks are wild. They can be played at any time, even if they do not match the top card in the discard pile. The player who plays the Jack chooses which suit must be played by the next player.

    When all the cards have been taken from the draw pile, players must play from the cards in their hands. If a player has no playable card at his turn, he must pass. The first person to get rid of all the cards in her hand is the winner.
