Picked up a homemade game at an estate sale but no one knew what it was called or how to play it. The board is made up with a deck of playing cards cut in half and set up on the board with the 4 kings in the middle surrounded by the aces and queens. Jokers at the four outside corners of the game board. I believe you use poker chips to put on the cards on the board. HELP! Someone must know about this game. I was told that the previous owner made the board and it was used in their motor home group and is popular with the motor home crowd. If you have any idea of what this game called or other info on how I might go about finding out how to play it please let me know. Thanks for looking!

Sounds like Sequence?

That does sound like Sequence, but the sequence of the cards is wrong. Perhaps an over-elaborate Kings in the Corner board?

I clicked on your link to sequence and there is a board there just like the one I have with the 4 kings in the middle. However, if you look at the board game sequence (in the box) the cards are different. Hmmm.....This is definitely a place to start. Thanks for the info. Perhaps this is a modified board of some kind as the cards are cut in half.

I've seen a number of these homemade sequence boards (though I'm not 100% positive it's sequence).

Back in the days when there were less maps we played every map back to back

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

The homemade version may have cut the deck in half because the real version uses two decks of cards.
