Sequence board game is a combination of board and card game. The board shows all the cards except for the Jacks of two standard 52-card decks, usually laid in a 10 x 10 pattern. The four corners of the board are supposed to be free spaces and count for all players equally.
Sequence board game, known as an abstract strategy board-and-card game, the inventor of the game was Douglas Reuter in Owatonna, Minnesota, over a two-year period in the 1970s and originally called it "Sequence Five". Reuter spent years ahead developing the concept and in June 1981, granted Jax Ltd gained an exclusive license to manufacture, distribute and sell the sequence board game and its subsequent variations worldwide.
Sequence board game can be played with 2 to 12 players. If more than three people are playing, they should divide evenly into two or three teams. The player chooses a card from their hand, and places a chip on a corresponding space on the game board. 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. The game ends when a player or team completes 2 sequences. But if the player who played first wins and the second player wins in the next turn it’s a tie.
The number of cards dealt to each player varies by the number of people playing:
1. Two Players: Seven cards each
2. Three Players: Six cards each
3. Four Players: Six cards each
4. Six Players: Five cards each
5. Eight Players: Four cards each
6. Nine Players: Four cards each
7. Ten Players: Three cards each
8. Twelve Players: Three cards each.
To win the sequence board game, you and your team must take advantage of good luck and try hard to block your opponent. Sequence is a game that requires you to think fast. This means that your plans on a game may constantly need to change as the game progresses. Place your chips as close together as possible toward the centre of the board. This allows the sequences to grow in more than one direction, which increases your chances of winning the game.
