The challenge of Connections is to play all the cards (in a standard deck of playing cards) using the legal moves of the game (see the moves listed in the picture to the right - I wrote them on a white board). This one plays well with 8 to 16 players (you could have more, but then it adds a bit more "waiting for your turn"). So far I've only played this one a couple times. First at a conference with high school and adult participants - they were a captive audience helping me work out some of the complexities of the game. The other, a middle school group (in the video) of 6th, 7th & 8th graders.
