Play Your Cards Right!

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend an hour or two or three, check out the Sleeping Queens card game. I received my game as a gift, and it languished on a shelf for a few years. I wasn’t particularly big on card games. I finally gave it a try this year. Wow. The fun I have been missing! The rules are simple, with the goal being to “wake up” at least five queens or 50 points worth of queens, whichever comes first. Two cards can wake up queens outright, two can hinder your opponent as he or she tries to collect queens, two can prevent your opponent from hindering your collection efforts, and number cards are there to just keep things rolling. The game is for two to five players. I mostly played with one other opponent and that was fun. Then I had the chance to play with three others. That changed the game a lot, but it was still quite fun! The game can get crazy with queens being stolen, put to sleep, stolen back and so forth. For good times with a simple card game, you can’t go wrong with Sleeping Queens. I applaud whoever created it.
