“My little geeks love playing it and it’s not a game that takes very long to complete. This has allowed me to play several games of Dozen Doubloons in a row before bedtime or when my kids just need to stop running around. The game also works very well as a starting game for the evening before moving to more complicated games. Best of all, the game does require critical thinking and math, but being stronger in either doesn’t give the player a significant advantage. This allowed my youngest little geek to play with his older siblings and adults without fear of being out skilled.”

HOW THE GAME WORKS
As in all card games with good replay value, it is relatively quick and easy to learn the basics of Dozen Doubloons. Let’s take a look at Solitaire. The deck of cards consists of four sets of numbers 1 through 12. The easy and obvious combinations are a 12 by itself, 1-11, 2- 10, 3-9, 4-8, 5-7, 6-6.
Early on in play it becomes obvious that it would be good to use a three card combination to get “unstuck” from where you are. This is where the fun begins. By observing which cards are in play and which cards have already been played, or to use the Blackjack term of “counting cards”, you discover that you can use a given card because its counterpart has already been used up, either by discard or is out of reach and rendered unusable.
