AKA 11 Nimmit!
A quick game of trying to rid yourself of cards, and taking cards into your hand when you have no valid discards. A little less information to track during a round than you have with its sister game and predecessor, Category 5 / Slide 5 / 6 Nimmit! Can play 7, but that makes the game 7 rounds long. 4 Players may be closer to the right ballpark.

Oddly enough I prefer this game as a 2-Player game. This one pretty much goes to every meal we go to out side of the house. The family is having a great time, and even Grandma has asked to play it. It's a quick and easy card game.

Excellent game! Easy to learn, quick to play ... This one is great for teaching to non-gamers. Seems to be best with about four to six players.

Excellent little card game, especially good with a larger player count. Elements of risk and reward creat an enjoyable tension in the game.

Essen 2010 purchase. From the 6 Nimmt! family. Each player starts with ten cards and tries to discard those cards first. Players play onto a single discard stack, with the played card being higher but not more than ten higher, than the current top card. The game is simple, fun and brilliant. Possibly even better than 6 nimmt! Well done Wolfgang!

11 nimmt! might be in the "nimmt!" family, but it plays as a completely different game than 6 nimmt!. The only mechanics that are similar are having to play in ascending order and the scoring of the bull heads on each card. I really like how when you take a pile with 3+ cards, you receive a bull head card which allows you to play multiple cards on the same stack. This adds a nice bit of strategy and can turn something bad into something good and change the game immediately in a drastic way (for your opponents). Awesome little card game.

Great 'empty your hand' game, played sequentially (rather than simultaneously, like 6 nimmt). Play accelerates wonderfully as players get more bull cards and more stacks come into play.

Looks like a nice alternative to the topgame 6 nimmt!. This game looks less tactical, but isn't at all a copy of its ancestor. Again a nice idea of Kramer with in fact old material.

There seemed to be a bit more strategy and variety to this than Slide 5, and I liked that players take turns instead of playing simultaneously. With one round per player it seemed to run a bit long and there were some pretty significant point swings from round to round, but these were minor problems that didn't bother me too much. There also seems to be some question as to whether bull cards are held from round to round. Although the official answer from Wolfgang Kramer is that they aren't, I actually prefer to play with them being held onto throughout the game. It gives a bit of an interesting decision if you don't have any/as many as other players...pick up extra cards to earn the bull and the ability to play multiple cards on a stack or try your luck without one?

Fun game. More than "6 Nimmt", in my opinion. Same as with "6 Nimmt": 3-player games are definitely more fun than 2-player games. Played a 3-player game (I taught the other two players) at Dragonflight Con and enjoyed it yet again, though I lost.

More tactically interesting than its big brother 6 nimmt!.

I shudder to think what will happen the first time I play 11 Nimmt! with a card counter good enough to track what's going on. Even without that, you can play tactically to reduce other players' choices and/or preserve your own. For example, do you play the 83 on the 73 or the 82?

Very good card game. Quick and thrilling when played right but I can imagine some AP if people are not quick on assessing their options.
Not sure which I prefer 6 or 11 nimmt! I think 6 has more strategy.

Very good little card game. Very different from 6 Nimmt. Be the first to get rid of all your cards by adding to the increasing discard piles, as long as the card added is within 10 of the previous number. Any higher than 10 & you have to take a discard pile. Easy to grasp & fun to play.

You have better control over what to do and can actually plan your moves. Plus, getting one or two stacks early in the game can potentially even raise your chances of winning!

11 Nimmt! -- My favorite of the Nimmt family.

Three players may be the sweet spot. Four was fine, but with more players, I'd want to cap the number of rounds to prevent the game from outlasting its charm.

Turns out, game length should not be an issue when you play with the correct rules.
