Come on Number One! 26 Aug. 2006
By L. Martin - Published on
I'm not sure when my family started playing RACKO but it's been at least ten years. Although we don't play as often as we did in the beginning, the game is still pulled out of the closet and used at least once every few months. But the interesting part is that my youngest daughter is getting very difficult to beat in this game and keeps me on my toes!

The game is a simple one and can be played with two to four people. Ten cards are dealt to each player and each card is placed in their "rack" (the plastic tray with slots to hold the cards). The cards must be initially placed in the order you are dealt them so they will be very jumbled at first. The trick is to get all the cards in sequential order from lowest to highest and the first one to do that wins the hand. You can draw from the pile or pick up the last discarded playing card and place it anywhere in your rack that you'd like. For example, a one should be placed in front and a sixty should go in the back. Sounds simple, but sometimes luck is not on your side and the right cards just do not come your way.

The game consists of four racks, a deck of cards with numbers from one to sixty, and a card tray to hold the deck and discard pile. There are no small pieces and nothing to assemble. It's ready to play right out of the box the first time.

Scoring is also simple. The person who gets their cards in sequential order first wins the hand and gets big points. Other players get points for how many cards are in sequential order. There are numbers on the racks to show the points given. It sounds a bit confusing, but if you had the rack in front of you, it's perfectly clear. You also get extra points for cards in order, e.g. one, two, three, etc. We usually play until someone reaches 500 points and then call it a game. If you're pressed for time, you can reduce that number or say you'll only play a few hands and the winner determined after the last hand.

The hardest part of this game is shuffling the cards and then figuring out where to place each new card you're given. It never fails, if I place a five in front, I'll draw a lower card that will be useless. It's frustrating but also highly enjoyable.

There are a few other things to note. Hasbro indicates that this game is for ages eight to adult, but younger children often pick up the concept after a few hands. You can also play with fewer cards - say one through thirty - to help them understand better. You can come up with a multitude of game variations to keep everyone entertained.

RACKO is one of the games that has withstood the time in our family. It goes with us on trips and we never tire of playing. It's just an inexpensive, good, fun family game that is enjoyable for everyone.

5-4-3-2-1 * RACK-0 * I WIN!! 19 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
I grew up playing games but had never heard of this until I got married. I guess my husband and his mom used to always play. It is great for all ages, it is educational for the little ones and strategy builder for the big kids. It is fun and keep wanting to play because you were so close to winning! Add this one to your game closet it is guarenteed excitement for the family/friends. (only set back is max # of people is 4) You can play with 2, 3, or 4 players. There are a few variations to play to keep things intersting and easier ways for those who are just learning. +++ Get this one TODAY +++

Best Game we have played as a family... 27 Oct. 2002
By Heather - Published on
I am 30, My daughter is 11, and my brother is 16, and we all love to play this game. Cards are not extremely durable, but it is a great game. Any time you want 6 or more people to play, just get a second game. That way, you have two decks and availability of up to EIGHT people to play. We do this with UNO as well. RACK-O is hands down, the most fun game we have all played and the only one we all agree is an absolute blast. I highly reccomend everyone own TWO of this game so ALL your friends can play at one time!!!!

Racko Shown in Picture IS NOT the Racko game they'll send you,,,unfortunately 29 Nov. 2010
By Shana - Published on
Verified Purchase
I ordered the Racko game shown in the picture. Unfortunately, the RACKO game sent to me was made by a different company than the RACKO pictured and the one I thought I'd be getting. The one sent had none of the green colored cards that allow for players to switch cards with opponents, switch cards within their own rack, switch opponents cards and take extra turns. The one sent was BORING...only numbered cards, all the same colors with the potential to only be put in numerical order. The green cards are what makes this game fun. Beware...what you see IS NOT what you'll get. I sent the games back. If they had sent the one pictured, I'd have been happy. That's the original RACKO game.

Racko is a very fun game! 28 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
RACKO is a game for 2 to 4 people. The object of the game is to go "RACKO" - having all 10 cards in your rack in consecutive order. You accomplish this by drawing and discarding cards on your turn. When somebody goes "RACKO" everybody counts how many points they have. You get 5 points for each card you have in your rack that goes in order from low to high starting from the bottom, and whoever goes "RACKO" gets an additional 25 points. If the person who goes "RACKO" has any runs of 3 or more cards, they get additional bonus points. First person to 500 points wins.

RACKO is very fun, and involves a lot of strategy. The rules are simple enough that kids can enjoy the game as well, making RACKO a fun game for the entire family.
