Superman III Card Game Rules

Ages: 6 to 12

Number of players: 2 to 4

Equipment: 25 Adventure cards 52 Number cards 32 SUPERMAN playing chips: 8 red, 8 blue, 8 green, 8 yellow

Approximate playing time: 5 to 15 minutes

Object: Be a hero - just like SUPERMAN - by competing in this fast-moving numbers game full of risk and strategy.

Try to get number cards that total 11-or as close to 11 as possible without going over. You'll need nerves of steel to decide whether to add another card to your hand-and risk going over 11- or play it safe with the cards you have. Win the round, and you can be a hero by turning over Adventure cards. Be the first to turn over 5 cards in a row, and you've won the game!
