Product Description

Who will have more cents (or sense?) when every player has the same number of coins?

Players have 3, 4, or 5 cards on their playing board, flipping one over at a time in turn. Cards have different coins on the front, and players add coin values as each card is flipped. The winner of each round is the player with the highest combined value of all their coin cards. One who starts out with a quarter when everyone else has pennies or nickels may not end up being the final winner! Players can catch up or fall behind quickly, with the turn of a single card.
