Qwitch consists of 64 cards mdash; with each card displaying one number (1-8) and one letter (A-H) mdash; and 12 directional cards (up, down, or equal). Deal out the number/letter cards evenly, then each player draws a hand of five cards from their personal deck; place one card face-up in the center of the table.br/br/Turn over the top directional card to indicate how players can add cards to the central stack. With a +, you can play a card that's one letter or one number higher than the top card, e.g. you can play a quot;4quot; on a quot;3quot; or a quot;Bquot; on an quot;Aquot;; with a -, you play a card one letter or one number lower; and with a =, you must play a card that matches the letter or number on the top card.br/br/Without taking turns, players race to play cards onto the central pile. When any player empties his hand, play pauses, a new direction card is revealed, everyone draws back up to five cards, then play resumes. When a player has no cards remaining in hand or in his deck, he wins.br/br/With younger players, you can play in turn rather than simultaneously, with players being allowed to pass if they can't play.br/br/
