All in all, I’d say that Crazier Eights is definitely an interesting variation on Crazy Eights with more complexity and considerably more strategy required. Possibly imbalanced for just two players, you can play with up to four or add a second deck and play with up to eight people at the same time!

Crazier Eights is a good game for developing house rules, or alternate ways to play. The newest idea I came up with hasn’t been highly tested and I think it will work better for Crazier Eights: Camelot and other newer versions.
Instead of playing up to one card for the effect and discarding up to one card during your turn:
- Players each play two cards for an effect from his or her hand during his or her turn.
You only discard when a card says you may. All other rules are the same.
I wrote about house rules before here. Team play is now an official way to play.
