For those unfamiliar with the game, 6 nimmt! (Take 6 or Category 5 in the US) has 104 cards numbered from 1 to 104.

I'm heading out on vacation tomorrow and need to pack as much games in as little space as possible. As I was fitting 6 nimmt! into my Razzia! box (perfect fit, mind you) it occured to me there were other games I could play with this deck and just a few extra bits. Not that I'm advocating not buying these other games, but I want to get by with as little as possible.

So now I'm wondering how flexible a game system 6 nimmt! is. Please add more if you can think of them, thanks!

Geschenkt needs cards 3-35, and 55 poker chips. As mentioned here (http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/34587 ) you can go up to more players this way too.

Pico 2 needs 11 cards, 4-13 and 16. You only need to add a chart for the pips and you're set with the 6 nimmt! deck.

As mentioned on another Geeklist (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... ) Relationship Tightrope can be played with the 6 nimmt! deck. It needs cards 1-50, then 11 more cards (1-9 and two 0, one red, one blue) and a bunch of blue and red sticks.

Well, I always play 6 nimmt! with my Hornochsen set (I'm a gamer on a budget!), so I would say that you may play this one with that set, you just need tokens to replace the 2x and +5 cards. Good gaming!

Pacal is a 2-player card game that uses cards numbered 1 through 50. All you would need to add is a way to count who won the best out of 5 rounds (or simply use your memory for that).

Pacal plays quickly but it's a fairly intense game. Each turn, you pick two cards for your play, but your opponent gets first choice of the cards. I really enjoy this game and I think playing it with a 6 Nimmt! deck is a good way for others to try out the game.

This game was later expanded slightly and gained a playing board when released at Pyramids of the Jaguar.

"Get the Goods" has 90 cards: 10 different "suits" each appearing 9 times. So, if you use 1-9, 11-19, 21-29,...91-99 as the suits, you can play this game.

8. Board Game: Nur die Ziege zählt [Average Rating:6.06 Overall Rank:8472]
Board Game: Nur die Ziege zählt
Cards 1-50

Even though the distribution of the goatheads in this game is a bit different from the one of the bullheads in 6 Nimmt, I think Nur die Ziege zählt is playable with 6 Nimmt. Just needs a way to keep score and to show the predictions.

Edit: did some calculation and this should work fine. The average value of the goatheads is 1.76, while the average value of the bullheads is 1.62.

This game uses the same cards as Nur die Ziege zählt and therefore you should be able to play this game with 6 Nimmt. You only need a way to make the islands.

Use cards in sets by tens in place of colors,(1-8 in first row, 11-18 in second row Ect..)
Use the 9-10 card of each set face down as the rest cards.
Use any cards over 100 for the equal cards (play them face down and switch places with the previous card in the row to make it easier to read the table.)

You only have to use one score tracker from the files section in "The mind" game here at BGG.

You dont need a rack, just tell players to maintain their hand order, like in Bohnanza. Scoring is just number x 5.

20. Board Game: Tranquility [Average Rating:7.40 Overall Rank:3233]
Board Game: Tranquility
Cards go from 1 to 80 for the base game. There are also 5 start cards and 5 finish cards. So... to make things intuitive:
* Use cards 1-5 as start cards
* Use cards 6-85 for the island cards
* Use cards 86-90 for the finish cards

Use 24 cards of equal size (from another game) to form the border (backside up).

Optionally you could use cards 91-104 for one or two of the expansions. There are not enough cards in the 6 nimmt! deck to use them all.

21. Board Game: Okiya [Average Rating:6.57 Overall Rank:2231]
Board Game: Okiya
This game uses 16 tiles: each tile has 2 symbols. There are 8 different symbols. If you assign a number to a symbol, you can use the cards from a 6 nimmt! deck.

For example:
1=poem flag
2=maple leaves
3=bird
4=rising sun
5=iris
6=cherry tree
7=rain cloud
8=pine tree

Looking at the tiles, you can use cards number 12,15,16,18,23,24,27,35,36,38,45,46,48,57,67&78.

Also use 16 tokens in 2 colours.
