Primes Primes

Dear card player,

With pleasure and pride, I would like to introduce you to a new and unique card game "Primes".

For 6 years, my father, Johannes Pelssers (+) and myself, worked relentlessly to translate and convert my father’s original idea into a fascinating, entertaining and challenging card game.

Together with a few young, creative, persevering and savvy heads, we have given the card game "Primes" shape and content. A special thanks to Wim, Mirthe, Kevin and Leander as well as to Professor dr. J.P. Van Bendegem for accepting the "mentorship" of "Primes".

Primes (Priemen) is a card game that is played with all prime numbers * between 10 and 60, in 4 colors with 2 jokers (total of 54 game cards). The goal is winning. This is possible by searching and making combinations yourself or by using a combination scheme. 4 players are each to make the strongest possible combination over 3 rounds. There is one winner per round.

The concept, the rules of the game, the combination scheme and the scorecard have been made available in English because Primes is a universal game that can be played by everyone as from the age of ten (10).

Have fun !

Jan Pelssers

* Prime numbers: numbers divisible only by one and by themselves. For the card game "Primes": 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59
