Blitz

Blitz is a rummy-style game for 2-4 players where your goal is to score the most points over 4 rounds by matching 13 cards into Runs and Sets on the table. The first player to play exactly 13 cards to the table discards their last card and wins the round. The highest score at the end of 4 rounds wins the game!

Scoring

Points are scored for matches played to the table or for winning the round. Any matches still in your hand at the end of the round score no points.

Scores are tallied at the end of each round as follows:

    • Win the Round (10 points) - First player (if any) to go out
    • Run (1 point per card) - 3 or more consecutive cards of the same color
    • Basic Set (2 points per card) - 3 or 4 cards of the same number and all different colors
    • Colored Set (3 points per card) - 3 or more cards of the same number and color
    • Wild Set (5 points per card) - 2 or more wild cards

Blitzing

Throughout the game you can steal the next turn by calling Blitz.

When any other player discards a card to end their turn, you may call Blitz if you are able to play it immediately to the table (either as part of a new match from your hand or as part of an existing match you have already played to the table). When you call Blitz it is your turn and the captured card counts as your draw but must be left on the table and not placed in your hand. Once you complete your turn play resumes in the direction of play for the round from you as the active player (other players may be skipped in the process).

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
