How to Play Fractazmic

 

 

Fractazmic is a card game that is actually plenty of games. The cards are designed to allow the users to learn while having fn playing the different games.

 

 

The Cards

 

 

The Fractazmic deck has three suits; The Sixteenths Suit, The Twelfths Suit, and the Tenths Suit. These suits are easy to spot as they are colored Red, Green, and Blue on the card faces. In each suit the cards have fractions that work within the suit to allow addition of the cards. The cards in each suit are;

 

 

Sixteenths Suit: 1/16, 1/8, 3/16, ¼, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, and ½

Twelfths Suit: 1/12, 1/6, ¼, 1/3, 5/12, and ½

Tenths Suit: 1/10, 1/5, 3/10. 2/5, and ½

 

 

Playing Fractazmic Trap (2-4 Players)

 

 

The easiest game to play with Fractazmic cards is Fractazmic Trap.  This game can be played with 2 to 4 players.

 

 

Object of the Game

 

 

The object of Fractazmic trap is to gather as many hands as possible before the first player runs out of cards. Hands are captured by either (1) playing a card that brings the sum of all cards thrown to 1 or (2) forcing the next player to throw a card that brings the sum to greater than 1 IN A GIVEN SUIT. If any of these events occur – the player captures the round and is the first to start the next round.

 

 

Game Play

 

 

One player first shuffles the cards and then deals 7 cards to each player . Play goes in a clockwise manner with the player to the dealers left starting.

 

 

The first player discards one card from their hand face up – this is the start of a round. The next player must discard a card of the same suit to the round, face up – so that both cards discarded are showing face up.

 

 

Play continues with the next player also discarding a card of the same suit.

 

 

If a player does not have a card of the suit of the round – they must pull a card from the remainder of the deck. They contine to draw cards until they get a card of the current suit.  If that card is in the suit of the round, they must discard the card to the discard pile face up so that all cards still show.

 

 

If a player has a card in their hand in the same suit as the round, they must discard it.

 

 

If a player discards a card to bring the total of the round to 1 – that player captures the round and gets to start the next round.

 

 

If the next player discards a card that brings the total of the round to greater than 1, the previous player wins the round and gets to start the next round.

 

 

Play continues until the first player discards all their cards. The first player to run out of cards, wins that round regardless of the total of cards played with a sum of 1. To be the winner they take the highest TOTAL of captured sums by any player and ADD their sums played to it. If they have the highest number of sums played - then they get double the number of sums played for the round.

 

 

All players count the number of sums they played - they get that many points, cards are reshuffled, dealt and players can play again with a new hand. Groups can keep track of the score of hands by keeping a running total of the score.

 

 

Playing Fractazmic Rummy (2-4 Players)

 

 

This game resembles the game Gin Rummy.  This game can be played with 2 to 4 players.

 

 

Object of the Game

 

 

The object of Fractazmic Rummy is to gather as many hands as possible before the first player runs out of cards and to be caught with as few cards as possible in your hand. Cards can be played from the hand at any time by having a sum of 1 within any given suit. Cards are played by laying the cards in front of the player.

 

 

Game Play

 

 

Cards are shuffled and 7 cards dealt to each player. If there are any cards that can be played by any player having a sum of 1 in their hand, they can play them now (a sum).

 

 

The player to the left (clockwise) of the dealer starts by drawing a card off the remaining deck. That player can play a sum at this time if they have one. The player then discards one card face up to the discard pile.

 

 

The next player can draw from the discard pile, or from the remaining deck – and proceed the same as the first player. If there are multiple cards in the discard pile, they should be discarded so that all cards are visible.

 

 

A player can pull a card from the discard pile from any position – but they must also pull all cards that are on top of the card they pull.

 

 

Play ends when the first player runs out of cards. Each sum played is worth one point. Every card that a player has in their hand at the end of the play is worth ¼ - regardless of face value and is subtracted from their total score.

 

 

The winner is whoever accumulates the most points through multiple hands of play.
