The Game: Quick & Easy
Play a card, draw a card — that couldn't be easier, right?
Don't be fooled, though, because even though the title claims this game is quick and easy, The Game: Quick & Easy will not be easy to defeat. You can do so only as a real team! In more detail, to win you must play all fifty cards in the deck on the two discard piles. The deck consists of fifty cards, with cards coming in five colors numbered 1-10 in each color. Each player has a hand of two cards.
On a turn, you play one or two cards onto one or both of the two discard piles. On one pile, you must play a higher card that whatever the top card is, and on the other, you must play a lower card. The exception is that you can play any card on a discard pile if it's the same color as the current top card. Thus, on the ascending discard pile the cards played might be blue 1, red 2, gray 4, yellow 6, yellow 2 — and that drop down gives you breathing room in which to play more cards.

What the press is saying
It’s so easy to set up and go again, and games so quick that it’s so tempting to say ‘one more try’ after each loss.
Being able to match color to break the placement rule is much easier for novices to remember; the game is much more accessible.
This is such a great co-op card game and it only has 52 cards. I mean, wow!
If you and your group found The Game too hard you will definitely find Quick & Easy more forgiving but still a satisfying challenge.
It's not a kid's game. It's really slick. We played a bunch of times immediately.
