DescriptionFun Crazy Eights
is a single player card game in which the player takes on three computer players.
At the start of the game each of the four players is dealt a hand of cards, five cards each being the default. The remainder of the deck is placed between them and play starts with one player placing a card, face up. A player can play any card onto the revealed card if it is the same suit, the same number or if it is an eight.
If the player does not have a suitable card in their hand they must take a card from the deck, this is the end of their turn and play passes to the next person.
