A Little Sequence

Last month I played a game that I had not played for some time. Just after our Christmas Feast I sat down with friends to play Sequence.

The Sequence playing board contains the images of two decks of playing cards, minus the Jacks.

The goal of the game is to get five chips in a row. You can play as individuals or as teams. I find that it is more challenging to play with teams.

Sequence was created by Douglas Reuter and is manufactured and distributed by Jax Ltd.

Now back to that memory of first playing Sequence. I first played the game in Michigan back in 1996 when visiting my sister for Christmas. I remember exactly when as I went up to see my new little niece. We played Sequence with one of my sister’s friends and had a lot of fun.

I always remember that trip when I play Sequence.

Other games that brings back memories are Dutch Blitz and Authors.

Do you have a board or card game that brings back special memories?

  1. I remember long boring evenings playing monopoly!

  2. I like Pictionary and Trivial Pursuit. I’ve played both the British and American versions of Trivial Pursuit — the British version was a lot more challenging!

    I have good memories of playing the card game of rummy with my sib. We always had a lot of fun with that game.
