#1 BEST FAMILY CARD GAME
Twice The Fun Card Game
Players compete by discarding matching numbers, colors or wild card. Smile at the twist of fate while confronting your opponent with the Boomerang card that reverses a penalty, the Ricochet card that bounces the penalty to any player of your choosing, or the Double Exchange card which results in two players exchanging their entire hand with any other player.
THE CARD GAME…that is…TWICE THE FUN…as…YOU KNOW…that other game!!!!
NO OTHER CARD GAME HAS THE TWIST OF FATE CARDS OF DOUBLE TROUBLE, DOUBLE EXCHANGE, BOOMERANG, AND RICOCHET.
Is It Really Twice The Fun??

ANOTHER VARIATION OF CRAZY 8’S
I have always liked the game play of crazy 8’s. Consequently, when I just a wee little one I learned the standard kids games using a regular deck of cards. For instance, there was War, Rummy, Spoons and Spit – also known as speed. And of course, crazy 8’s. First, my dad was in the military with a 4 year job in Germany. Second, we lived in a small apartment with a family of 5. In particular, TV was limited to one American channel, all in black and white.
Finally, to pass the time, a deck of cards was the go to in our household. As a result, house rules dictated that we could take the 8’s and turn them into wild cards that would only be limited in our capacity to imagine and use to add a little wildness to the game.
ORIGINAL CARD GAMES
Then, over the years, original card games started to appear. For example, one such game which is now considered the #1 selling card game in the US had it’s roots in crazy 8’s. In the same way,that game, using a Spanish word for the number one was very similar to what we were doing as kids. The Skips. As well as the Lose Your Turns. In addition to the Draw 1, 2, 3, and even 4 cards. We even did reverse when there were more than 4 players.
TWICE THE FUN….BETTER THAN YOU KNOW….THAT OTHER GAME
After playing Twice The Fun I can testify that this card game also has many of the features of Crazy 8’s but the difference is in the creative design of Boomerang, Ricochet, and Double Exchange. In addition to the game changer Double Trouble which can strategically change the game on the last hand.
Therefore, to answer the question, yes…this card game is Twice The Fun. Easy to learn. Fun to play and a point system that adds a layer of competitiveness. My suggestion is that you have at least 4 players and as many as 6 to maximize the best features of this card game. So give it a try…let me know what you think.
