How to play Empty the bank?

Are you ready to empty the bank? This exciting card game is perfect for a night in with friends or family. The objective is simple: be the first player to empty your bank of all its cards.

To start, each player is dealt a hand of cards from the bank. The remaining cards are placed in a draw pile in the center of the table. The first player then starts by playing any card from their hand onto the discard pile. The next player must then play a card of equal or higher value onto the discard pile, or draw a card from the draw pile.

If a player cannot play a card or chooses to draw, they must add the drawn card to their hand and their turn ends. The first player to empty their hand of all their cards wins the round and receives points based on the value of the cards left in their opponents’ hands.

But be careful, there are special cards that can change the course of the game. The “Reverse” card changes the direction of play, while the “Skip” card skips the next player’s turn. The “Draw Two” card forces the next player to draw two cards from the draw pile.

The game continues until a player reaches the agreed-upon point total, usually 500 or 1000 points. The player with the highest score at the end of the game is declared the ultimate winner.

Empty the bank is a fast-paced and exciting game that is perfect for any game night. So grab your friends and family, and get ready to empty your bank!
