Go Boom

Go Boom is a matching activity for kids. It's one of the fun group card games kids will love!

Get ready to make a loud noise at the end of play!


2 - 7 players
Ages 5 and up
Need standard deck of cards


Begin by each player picking a card - the player with the highest card shuffles and deals 7 cards to each player, one at a time, face down.

Put the remaining cards face down in the middle of the table or the floor.

Each player should arrange his cards from high to low. Aces are high here.

The object is to get rid of all your cards.

The player to the dealer's left starts and puts any card from his hand face up beside the middle face-down stack.

The next player to the left puts a card down that is either the same value or same suit as the first card.

If he can't match the first card in value or suit, he has to pick cards from the face-down stack until he gets one he can play.

If there are no cards left in the face-down middle stack, the player says "pass," and the next player goes.

The round is over after each player takes a turn. The dealer takes the middle face-up cards and lays them to the side.

The player who threw the highest card in round one starts the second round and places a card face up in the middle.

If two players threw the same highest value card, the first one who threw it starts the next round.

Play continues until one player gets rid of all his cards. He shouts "Boom!" and wins the game.

Play as long as you want, or set a time limit or set a number of rounds that you will play.
