Play a card, take a card — that couldn't be easier, right?

Don't be fooled, though, because even though the title claims this game is quick and easy, The Game: Quick & Easy will not be easy to beat. You can only do so as a real team! In more detail, in order to win you must play all fifty cards in the deck on the two discard piles. The deck is made up of fifty cards, with cards coming in five colors numbered 1-10 in each color. Every player has a hand of two cards.

On your turn, you play one or two cards onto one or both of the two discard piles. On one pile, you must play a card higher than whatever the top card is, and on the other, you must play a lower card. The exception is that you may play any card on a discard pile if it's the same color as the current top card. Thus, on the ascending discard pile the cards played could be blue 1, red 2, gray 4, yellow 6, yellow 2 — and that drop down gives you breathing room in which to play more cards.

You can't disclose the specific numbers you have in hand, but you can say things like, "I have a high yellow card." In the "professional" version of the game, you must play exactly one card every turn (even if you want to play two), and you can reveal only the color of cards in your hand and on which stack you want to play.
