Each card in the 72-card deck is emblazoned with four color bars, each bar in two sections, and those sections are either red, green, yellow, or blue. The objective is for each of the 2 to 6 players to create a row of connected bars at least five cards wide, scoring points based on the length of their single-colored bars. But there’s more! Each card has a value that allows the players to purchase cards from an array on the table, or even bargain with each other. The more valuable cards also have special actions that can be used during play. Try for lots of shorter colorbars or go for the longer high-scoring colorbar. Your strategy may shift, depending on how the cards interconnect!
This game can be played by players ages and up. One game of Colorbars takes about to play.
