Crazy Eights is a shedding-type card game for two to seven players. The object of the game is to be the first to get rid of all the player's cards to a discard pile. The game is considered a pre-extension of Switch and Mau Mau, much favored in schools during the 1970s.
A standard 52-card deck is used when there are fewer than six players. When there are more than five players, two decks are shuffled together and all 104 cards are used.
