Phase 10 + 10. Contributed by Justin Huneke Phase 10 +10 is played with a deck of Phase 10 cards and played the same way as the proprietary game Phase 10 except that the 10th phase only marks the half way point!. Phase 9 – 1 set of 5 and 1 set of 2 Phase 10 – 1 set of 5 and 1 set of 3 For those Phases which require more than 2 combinations, e.g. Phase 1, you must have all the cards in hand ready to form BOTH combinations, before you lay them down; one combination is not enough, neither are any partial Phases acceptable.. Phase 10 is a brilliant game, lots of fun and highly recommended for all the family. UPDATE: Only one of the ten phases makes use of the card colours. I wish more phases were colour specific.. 10. 1 set of 5 + 1 set of 3 Each player can make only one Phase during each hand. DEFINITIONS SETS: A set is made of two or more cards with the same number. EXAMPLE: Phase 1 is two sets of three, which could be three “7s” and three “10s.” The two sets could also be the same number, e.g., three “10s” and three more “10s.” The cards may be in any combination of colors. RUNS: A . Working on Phase 10 (1 set of 5, 1 set of 3) do you grab the 11? Or take a risk and draw from the pile?. Whether you're entertaining guests or just passing time, you're sure to get addicted to Phase 10 once you learn the rules of the game. Phase 10 is a fun and easy to learn rummy type game..
