I wasn’t able to get a photo of the gameplay between Jenn and Eva but here is a link to a video of mine and my friend’s game session.

Straight is a 2-4 player card game that is fun for all ages. The goal of the game is to match each of your 13 cards to each other by suit or number. This does not mean to PAIR them. Each single card must match its previous card or next card by suit or number, but all cards must match. This game is fast so many games can be played. There will be some situations where you will have a bad hand and unable to match all of your cards but this is pretty rare.

A person can come up with different strategies for this game. What I like to do is match all the cards by suit, and then find pairs to use as transition cards. Using this as a starting point is very helpful. This is probably the easiest way to organize your cards but there may be situations where you cannot complete a whole hand using this strategy. With this strategy, your hand will have 4 or less groups for each suit with a pair between each suit group.

When this strategy does not work, you will have to rearrange the cards and may end up with 5+ groups due to the transition cards and making everything match its previous and next card.
