Enter to win your own Paddy O'Shea's Golf Card Game. Ends 2/18/14.
Looking for a new family card game to play at home? I recently had a chance to try out the Paddy O'Shea's Golf Card Game. It is meant to be played with 2-6 players, ages 10 and up. Age-wise, that's probably about right. I tried to play the game with my seven year old and the instructions were just too complicated for him to follow.

Extra Cards for Paddy O'Shea's Golf Game
Extra Cards
The game is made up of 114 cards, consisting of two regular decks of 52 each, along with some extra cards to provide special handling. The concept of the game is to create 3x3 grids of cards, where rows, columns, and diagonals consist of cards that either match 3 in a row, or don't. Whatever cards that don't match after all the cards are turned up, these are part of the points you collect for that round. The lower your score, the better.

To demonstrate, in the above sample screen, the score is 6, for the diagonal from bottom left to top right. The 7 of spades, joker, and ace of spades are the only cards without a match.  All the other cards make up sets of three matches. A game consists of 9 rounds, or holes, to give it a golf theme, and you do have a score card to track points.

The hardest part of the game is getting from no 3x3 grid of cards to the final score for that hole. This consists of a series of flips and draws of new cards, and discarding of old, in the hopes of minimizing your score. We'll leave exactly how for the instruction manual. It is not that difficult of a concept, but I'd rather not confuse with too few words.

A typical game takes approximately 40-50 minutes, and the card game retails for $9.95. It makes a great gift! Once you get started playing, you'll typically find yourself wanting to play more than one game with family and friends. It is a fun game to play for adults and older kids alike.
