Fun! Fast! Furious! Can get loud! Reminds me of Pit, Spoons/Spades, Uno, and Set. Colorful cards. Easy to learn. For all ages. Inexpensive. Playing it or watching it gets your blood pumping! Good game! This is my 2nd favorite game of it's kind, 2nd to Spot It.

My daughter claimed our copy of this game.

All you need to do is beat your opponent on speed.

A very quick filler! Fun and fast, following the current trend of fast, real time games.

I liked 7 Ate 9 so I thought I'd give Super Circles a try. I like how this uses the same mechanic as 7 Ate 9, but it feels like you use a different part of your brain for this game. My wife disliked it for basically the same reason. Numbers just made more sense to her.

Fun, but 7 Ate 9 is better.

Quick real-time game that's a little harder than it sounds.

Another speed card game by Out of the Box but with a different kind of mental thinking. You need to be quick on your matches, and those circles can make it tough.

Actually a decent game - 'speed' games are not my forte but it's fun for the kids!

Maybe a bit harder to play than 7 ate 9, fills the same niche.

Played prototype at ALA.

An interesting speed game. Probably pretty good for kids, and fast-paced enough that adults may be interested for a game or two. Personally, I can't see playing it over and over, but it's not bad.

Nice to play this fast and chaotic game, but you have to concentrate too hard, to be a top game.
I will play it again, but it will never be a favourite in this type of games.

Decent color matching game with a speed component that works well for kids beginning around age 5 or so. Reminds me of Blink which we enjoy. Quick filler - not something I'd want to play repeatedly in one evening.

Fun game. Play cards that match circles and numbers. Get rid of your cards first. I think it is the best of the "Fun and Go" card games.

Another speed-game from OOB, similar to 7 Ate 9 and their older games Blink and Switch: players are simultaneously racing to play all their cards. The twist here is that the game is based on color-matching (vs. math, pattern-matching, or simple alphabet/counting).

This is probably great for visually oriented people -- maybe artists and the like -- but is slower/harder/less fun for people like me. I definitely prefer every other version of the speed-get-rid-of-your-cards game!

Also, the 2-player endgame is potentially broken if you're a gamer (they seem to have left a key rule, present in 7 Ate 9, out of the published version of the rules here). In 7 Ate 9, your last card can be played onto anything. Not so, here. That means that once a player is down to their last card, the other player is free to draw their entire remaining deck, take time to arrange it in a way that allows them to play everything in sequence, and then very quickly (without really giving the other player time to analyze the card played and react) play their cards one at a time. Of course, the fix is easy: just implement that rule!

--- Summary ---
The cards show a bulls eye target: circle in the center, with 3 surrounding circles. Each of these 4 areas are numbered (1 in center, 4 outer ring) and have a different color. Shuffle the cards, place one face up in the center, and split the rest evenly amongst players. When the game starts, player play simultaneously:
- can draw cards, one at a time, into your hand; no hand limit
- can play cards, one at a time, on top of the card in the center.
... Legal plays are cards where the color of one of the numbered areas matches the color of the matching area of the card on top of the stack. Announce that number as you play the card.
... Players may not play 2 cards matching the same numbered area consecutively (e.g., if someone plays a card matching '2', next card must be a 1, 3 or 4.

The first player to play all cards wins!

This has the same mechanic as 7 Ate 9, but for some reason it just isn't as much fun to play. We found it too easy to set up a run of cards and then play them all down. Will try again with more players.

One of these superfast realtime speed games. It is all skill for sure but I like better a bit slower realtime games like Flix Mix. These superfast games also suffer from the fact that it might be impossible to notice mistakes during the game at certain points.

My favorite of the Out of the Box speed card games. However for those looking for a little 'edutainment', you may want to look at 7 ate 9 instead.
