64

2-player sliding card puzzle

What is 64?

  • 64 is a 2-player card game in which one slides numbered card on a 3X3 grid and combines them to reach 64 while the other blocks it.

Can I just watch a video to learn how to play?

  • Yes.

Finally, I prefer to read, so what is the goal of 64?

  • For the Slider, to slide numbered cards and to combine them to reach 64.
  • For the Blocker, to prevent the Slider to succeed.

How long will it take to win (or loose)?

  • 15-30 minutes

How many players can play?

  • 2 players. Plenty more can cheer around if you'd like.

Can a child play?

  • Of course! It is very easy to learn even for a child or an adult that doesn't know how to count!

What's in this beautiful hook box?

  • 18 beautiful playing cards.

Can I use a mat?

  • A mat is optional but can make it easier when sliding cards.
  • The mat is not included in the box.
  • You can download for free a special printable mat that fits a letter size paper (free download) or you can use a letter size paper and draw a 3X3 grid; each cell being the size of a poker card.

What do I have to do to setup this game?

  • If you use a mat, place it between the 2 players.
  • Decide who will be the Slider and the Blocker.
  • The Blocker takes all the cards numbered 2 and 4, shuffles them and keep the deck in his hand.
  • The Slider places the 8, 16, and 32 in three separate piles, face up in front of him.

Can we play now?

If you insist:

  1. The Blocker places a card on the grid
    • The Blocker holds the deck of 2 and 4 face down in his hand. He takes the top card and place it over a free cell, then he flips it face up.
    • Therefore, the blocker decides where the card is going to be, but doesn't know for sure if it will be a 2 or a 4.
  2. The Slider slides the cards
    • The Slider slides all cards in one direction (from left to right, from right to left, from top to bottom or from bottom to top).
    • All cards are pushed back until the far edge of the grid or until it hits another card.
  3. The Slider combines the matching cards
    • If two cards are the same while sliding, they combine.
    • If you combine 2X2, put one card over the other. They count as a 4 and are left on the grid.
    • If you combine 2X4, use an 8 card to replace them.
    • If you combine 2X8 use a 16 card to replace them.
    • If you combine 2X16 use a 32 card to replace them.
    • All remaining cards of the column or the row slide again to hit the combined card.
    • The 2 and 4 are immediately given back the Blocker. The Blockers must shuffle his desk immediately as well.
    • The 8 and 16 are placed back on their respecting piles, face up.
  4. Repeat step 1 to 4 until the Slider reaches 64 or there is no possible combination.

How do I win?

  • The Slider wins if he combines the 2X32 reaching 64.
  • The Blocker wins if the Slider cannot combine any more cards.

Can I play again?

  • Sure! While you are at it, you can switch roles between the Slider and the Blocker.
  • You can also make a Grand Tournament with your friends and family. Make sure to buy as many copy as you like!
