:59 Seconds is a fast-moving 2-player card game that is guaranteed to keep players on their toes. Before they can dive in, players set up their game space. Both players sit across from each other and each put two piles of cards in the center of their play area.The Action Pile consists of one card face down, while each Refresh Pile gets 5 cards face down. Both players then take five cards for their hand, and 21 cards to keep near them as their Draw Pile.
Some special spaces allow players to add one or more chips to any game space of their choice, take back all their chips that opponents stole, or add a chip to their opponent’s board to prevent that player from getting six in a row. Additionally, if a player rolls a dice with stars in the corner, they may take one chip for each star from an opponent. The player that wins the round earns 5 points, and is one step closer to becoming the reigning champ.
The Ten Dollar Game Night collection features games that are sure to be a big hit, but with little cost.
