I want to get a feel of how many people would be interested in a skipbo themed camp. How many of you? Raise your hands? It would be really great, from a color theme to a number theme and all in between. There would be daily tournaments and prizes to go along. Watch out no limit hold'em , SKIPBO may be coming to town.

A member of Mattel's popular family of Uno card games, Skip-Bo resembles speed (or spit) in the same way that Uno takes after crazy eights. Out of a 162-card deck, two to six players are each dealt 20-card "stockpiles"; the first one to deplete their pile wins. Competing either alone or in teams, players draw from a central pile and stack their cards sequentially onto one of four "build" piles (for example, an eight onto a seven, a three onto a two), using plentiful Skip-Bo wild cards to break up static situations. Deceptively simple and ingeniously designed, this classic game offers plenty of strategizing opportunities, or it can just make a nice backdrop to socializing and munching on potato chips. --Paul Hughes
From the Manufacturer
Each player/partner is dealt a stockpile of cards and then attempts to win by playing all these cards on building piles in numerical sequence from 1 to 12. Skip-Bo is from the makers of UNO.
