6 nimmt! or Category 5 is a great little card game perfect as a filler or just for some fun at any time.

The deck consists of cards numbered from 1 to 104 and each card also shows a certain number of ox heads. The aim of the game is to avoid collecting ox heads. Most cards just have one ox on but cards which are a multiple of 5, 10 or 11 have several oxen on.

At the start of the game everyone is dealt 10 cards and 4 cards are put out face up on the table to create the starting piles.

Each turn every player must select a card from their hand. These are then all revealed simultaneously and will be played in numerical order from smallest to biggest. Cards played are added to the 4 piles by putting them next to a card they are higher than but closest to in number. When a pile of cards gets a 6th card, the person who played that card must take the 5 cards in the pile and then start a new pile with the 6th card. If your card is too small to go on the end of a pile you can collect a pile of your choice then start a new one.

The rules are simple but the strategy is not obvious. It's a game with some tactics and some randomness that makes it really fun to play. It works well with any number so give it a go!
