Sequence is a board and card game. The board shows all the cards (except for the Jacks) of two (2) standard 52-card decks, laid in a 10 x 10 pattern. The four corners are free spaces and count for all players equally.
The players compete to create rows, columns or diagonals of 5 connected checkers placed on the cards that the player has laid down. Two-eyed Jacks are wild, while one-eyed Jacks allow an opponent's checker to be removed. The game ends when someone has reached a specified number of connections.
We first played this on a camping trip, and this was perfect as the kids could all participate as well as the adults. Even the preschoolers joined in easily as it requires a team effort. We started off being lenient on the card replacement rule - beginners seem to forget to pickup a replacement card.
I started off playing easy with the kids, but it didn't take long before they got the hang of it, and they started being just as good, in fact even better than the adults.
Have since played with kids, adults, and grandparents all combined - a great all-round fun family game.
