Crazy Eights is a shedding-type card game. The first player that successfully discards all of his or her cards wins the round. The first player to reach 300 points wins the game.
A regular 52-card deck is used and players take turns. Players can successfully discard cards by matching the rank or suit of the last discarded card. If the player has no playable cards, then he or she must draw cards from the middle pile until a playable card is drawn. 8's are considered wild cards and can be played on top of any card. The player that discards an 8 can set the acceptable suit for the next turn.
