Dutch Blitz

Dutch Blitz is an energetic and interactive game that will test your wits and speed!

Your goal is to get rid of your 'blitz pile' - ten cards on the table in front of you with only the top card is visible! With shared stacks of cards in the centre of the table that have to be played in ascending order and the same colour, all players play at the same time to be the first to empty their pile of cards! There are no turns in this game!

As soon as one player has cleared their blitz pile, the round is scored. The game ends when at least one person breaks 75 points, and then the highest scorer wins!

Dutch Blitz Card Game

 

Dutch Blitz is the kind of game that makes your brain work really hard, but because you’re having so much fun, you won’t even notice. Perfect for parties and family game nights, Dutch Blitz has been a favourite of card players for decades—and it’s more popular today than ever.

In Dutch Blitz, each player has her own deck of forty cards, with cards 1-10 in four colours; red and blue cards show a Pennsylvania Dutch boy, while yellow and green cards show a Pennsylvania Dutch girl. Each deck has a different symbol on the back to aid with card sorting between rounds.

At the start of each round, each player lays out three cards face up in front of her to create her post piles; places a face-up stack of ten cards, seeing only the top card, next to her post piles to create her blitz pile; and holds the remaining cards in hand face down.

Playing at the same time, each player tries to empty her blitz pile. If she has a 1 on the top of any face-up stack, she plays it to the centre of the table to create a Dutch pile. If she has a 2 of the same colour as any 1 on top of a Dutch pile, she can place the 2 on the 1. All cards on a Dutch pile must be played in ascending order and must be the same colour. A player can also play from the blitz pile onto a post pile, or from one post pile onto another, but only if the numbers are in descending order and the boys and girls alternate.

If a player can't play anything, she can reveal cards from the stack in her hand, counting them out in groups of three, then laying them face up while revealing only the top card. She can play this top card onto a Dutch pile or post pile as long as she meets the rules for doing so.

As soon as a player empties her blitz pile, the round ends. Each player scores 1 point for each of her cards among the Dutch piles, then loses 2 points for each card remaining in her blitz pile. Players then sort all the cards and play another round. As soon as at least one player has at least 75 points, the game ends and the player with the most points wins.

Note that while the Dutch Blitz: Expansion Pack allows for play of Dutch Blitz with up to eight players (by having differently coloured card backs), it is also a standalone game and is therefore listed as a separate edition of Dutch Blitz despite the name.
